A highly readable combination of history and biography, Other Powers interviews the stories of some of the most colorful social, political, and religious figures of America's Victorian era with the courageous and notorious life of Victoria Woodhull--psychic, suffragette, publisher, presidential candidate, and self-confessed practitioner of free love. It is set amid the battle for women's suffrage, the Spiritualist movement that swept across the nation in the age of Radical Reconstruction following the Civil War, and the bitter fight that pitted black men against white women in the struggle for the right to vote.
Peter Gay found Other Powers "Irresistible...this is a biography guaranteed to keep the reader reading." And Gloria Steinem called it "A real-life novel of how one charismatic woman...turned women's suffrage, the church, New York City, and much of the country on its ear."
Kept isolated form the court by her domineering mother, Victoria seems unprepared for the throne when King William IV (Sir Peter Ustinov) dies. But the teenage queen shows surprising strength and resolve, and puts her full faith in the political counsel of Lord Melbourne, the Prime Minister. With the help of Belgium's King Leopold, a meeting is arranged between Victoria and her cousin, Prince Albert of Germany. Though initially reluctant, she falls utterly in love when she sees him, and they are married after a brief courtship.
The changing political fortunes of Lord Melbourne finally afford Albert the opportunity to become involved in the affairs of state - a role Victoria had previously resisted. Soon, his wise counsel leads the Queen to call him "king in everything but name." But their joint rule would not last long, as Albert's tireless work on the Great Exhibition of 1851 comes at the cost of his health. He never fully recovers, eventually succumbing to typhoid fever in 1862, leaving Victoria to rule alone for nearly 40 years.
There is no doubt their hard won, sole right to be hailed and pick up in the street is shrinking and there are many concerns if you drive a black cab. There are now 90,000 private hire vehicles on the streets and apps like Uber and 'ehailing' by phone means it is easy to find a lift. Cabbies also say there is a lack of enforcement by Transport for London (TfL) on touts and there are too many road works, with some cabbies complaining the construction of cycle superhighways are contributing to congestion. Also, new cabs will have to be electric from 2018. More broadly, cabbies have found themselves isolated politically (even though they do have a representative on the board of TfL) as the trend in cities is to give more space over to pedestrians... The Conservative mayoral hopeful Zac Goldsmith has said he would allow electric cars in bus lanes in which black cabs are allowed to go. And more areas of London are being closed to cars and cabs. City of London has said it will close the notorious Bank junction to all traffic apart from buses and cyclists to make it safer for the 18,000 pedestrians an hour that use it. Tavistock Place is another example. The rise in cycling and the increase in cycling infrastructure certainly attracts anger from the black cab trade. On some roads according to the 2013 Central London Cycle Census, cyclists make up 24% of road-based vehicles in the morning peak. But as well as the rise in cycling, there has also been a big jump in the number of 'white vans'. According to TfL,25% of peak traffic in London are now vans, and 5% are HGVs. Also the number of private hire vehicles (PHVs) entering the congestion charge zone has also jumped. There are now 91,465 PHV registered drivers compared to 76,249 at the start of 2014. TfL predicts it could reach 128,000 by 2017. It also believes about 8% to 10% of vehicles in peak traffic are now PHVs and the mayor thinks it is the private hire... There are big redevelopment projects at Lewisham Gateway, Victoria and Nine Elms. At City Hall congestion is seen as a concern. In the latest Street Performance report it says: "We've seen a significant deterioration in London-wide traffic speeds during observed hours of 07:00 to 19:00. These decreased by 1. 0 mph to 17. 5 mph compared to Q1 last year, representing a 5. 6%... Source: www.bbc.co.uk

Threatened with the ending of his teaching career unless he publishes scholarly work soon, Dawson Goldsmith embarks of writing a literary biography of his uncle, who became a successful and noteworthy novelist after a career in journalism. He discovers that his uncle was a man with secrets that not only determined the course of his life and his early death. That knowledge jolted Dawson out of the tranquility of his sheltered life into a world of danger that required fortitude and action unlike anything required of his before.
