AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When the first of Frank Moorhouse's trilogy of novels about Edith Campbell Berry was published in 1993, Canberra-based political historian Lenore Coltheart was teaching and writing on women and internationalism and about to spend a sabbatical at the League of Nations archives in Geneva. Edith Campbell Berry is a heroine so vivid that, although a fictional construction, 'What would Edith do?' has become a ready response to dilemmas public and private. Drawing on Moorhouse's trilogy and her own research into the time, Coltheart examines a more fundamental question: 'Who is Edith Campbell Berry?' (p. 7)
