Emma Hamilton (Life & Times)

One of today's most innovative historians of sex and gender gives an insight into the life of an enduringly romantic figure and presents a new understanding of Emma's life with Sir William Hamilton and their extraordinary liaison with Horatio Nelson. There was to be no happy ending. After his death at Trafalgar, society exacted its revenge upon Emma's outrageous unconventionality and this combined with her own self-destructive impulses, lead to the tragic exile and decline of one of history's most alluring women.

Julie Peakman is part of an exciting new generation of academic historians who are prepared to push back the boundaries in search of a new type of social history which is made comprehensible to the general public. She is a fellow at UCL, visiting lecturer at Oxford Brookes University and a frequent contributor to national and international conferences, journals and books on history.
