Promise of a Dream is a moving, witty and poignant recollection of a time when young women were breaking all the rules about sex, politics and their place in the world. At the beginning of the 1960s, Sheila Rowbotham was a rebellious sixteen-year-old at a Methodist boarding school in northeast England, reading Sartre and dreaming of Paris. Thriving in the exhilaration and enthusiasm of the sixties, she departs the decade a seasoned political activist on the revolutionary paper Black Dwarf

Promise of a Dream charts the formation of an internationally influential historian and writer on feminist and socialist ideas, whose early books were seminal to the development of second-wave feminism and play a vital role in the enduring concept of the personal as political.
