This book, first published in 1893, contains a candid description of the first forty-two years of Annie Besant's life: a relatively happy childhood, an unfortunate marriage, followed by domestic, social, religious and political trials and tribulations. It reveals her remarkable courage and a strong sense of social justice.

This autobiography is a shining example of the unlimited potential of one who is convinced of his or her goal.

Annie Besant (1847-1933) led the fight for the rights of women and laborers in her native England; later she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and spearheaded India's struggle for freedom. Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as "a feminist before the movement for women's rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism." A student of India's spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.
