A History of the World in 21 Women - A Personal Selection by Jenni Murray

Regular price £8.99 £6.29 Sale

The history of the world is the history of great women. Jenni Murray celebrates great women from around the world - rescuing some from obscurity and shining a new light on familiar names.


Marie Curie discovered radium and revolutionised medical science. Empress Cixi transformed China. Frida Kahlo turned an unflinching eye on life and death. Anna Politkovskaya dared to speak truth to power, no matter the cost. Their names should be shouted from the rooftops.

And that is exactly what Jenni Murray is here to do.
