Ruth Augusta Adam (1907 - 1977) was an English writer and feminist. This book is both human and humane, wise and cynical, polemical and witty. It concludes, wearily: 'A woman born at the turn of the century could have lived through two periods when it was her moral duty to devote herself, obsessively, to her children; three when it was her duty to society to neglect them; two when it was right to be seductively ''feminine''; and three when it was a pressing social obligation to be the reverse.' CONDITION 224 pages with photo plates and comic sketch illus, bright and crisp copy. DJ has been scrunched up at bottom front causing a large tear either side repaired with archival tape o/w mild wear to spine head. Near Fine/Very Good.
