Alva Myrdal (1902-1986), diplomat, feminist, and one of the founders of the Swedish welfare state, exemplifies in her extraordinary life the joys, the sorrows, and the achievements of women in our time. Her daughter shows us with unflinching candor how Myrdal struggled to attain in her private life the freedom and opportunity which she won for millions of other women.
Sissela Bok, Ph.D., who has taught philosophy at Brandeis University and ethics and decision making at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, is the author of Lying, Secrets, and A Strategy for Peace

From Our Editors

Author Sissela Bok relates the extraordinary story of the romance between her parents--diplomat and stateswoman Alva Myrdal and world famous economist Gunnar Myrdal--which began as a summer idyll and led to their receiving Nobel prizes, each in a separate field. "Profoundly inspiring".--Betty Friedan
