Search for a New Eden: James Pierrepont Greaves (1777-1842), the Sacred Socialist and His Followers
"Though Greaves' most persevering followers were from the merchant class, he was supported by members of the upper class, among them Sophia Chichester, widow of a major landowner and cousin of the Ansons of Shugborough. The support she and her sister gave to Greaves is a unique case of upper-class female radicalism in early Victorian England. The account here of the sisters' unorthodox political and religious activities is an important contribution to feminist studies."--BOOK JACKET. "The story of Greaves and Alcott House is set in the wider context of contemporary efforts to sustain ideal communities in Britain and America."--BOOK JACKET.
