"Annie Besant (1847-1933) was a prominent British socialist, theosophist, women's rights activist, writer and orator and supporter of Irish and Indian self-rule. From Anglican clergyman's wife in 1867 to one-time president of the Indian National Congress and an admired friend of Mohandas K. Gandhi, Annie Besant lived many lives, some of them so incredible that it seems impossible they were lived at all. Her life crosses nearly every major intellectual and political movement of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries--on three continents and in a variety of spheres." from the jacket flap.
