Reviews

Praise for the 2nd edition "This is a wonderful set of two volumes on the history of American women, from the earliest colonial period to the 1990s. It is based on a wide variety of sources, and it is extensively documented. Anyone interested in the history of women in the United States should consult this important work." (The Historical Journal of Massachusetts, Summer 1995)
