About George

A Man of Free Intelligence:

The best and only biography of George Woodcock is George Fetherling’s The Gentle Anarchist: A Life of George Woodcock (Douglas & McIntyre, 1998; Subway Books, 2005). It provides a thorough account of Woodcock’s work as an intellectual anarchist and prolific author.

For some intimate information on the private lives of George Woodcock and Ingeborg Woodcock, Alan Twigg’s Tibetans in Exile: The Dalai Lama & The Woodcocks (Ronsdale, 2009) contains reminiscences from people who knew them well.
