"'The Compassionate Englishwoman' is an arresting work of historical scholarship that combines a shocking argument concerning British atrocities in the Boer War and a mesmerising account of Emily Hobhouse's determination to end the cruelty and deaths associated with the notorious British concentration camps." Marilyn Lake, Professor in History, University of Melbourne

"A well-researched and readable account of the humanitarian work of Emily Hobhouse, offering a too little aired perspective on the atrocities of the British forces in the Anglo-Boer War. The book is likely to attract a wide readership among those interested in military history, imperialism, colonial affairs, women's lives, South African history, and humanitarian concerns." Dorothy Driver, Professor in English, Adelaide University and former Professor of English, University of Cape Town
