Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first annotated edition of Jane Addams's superb autobiography. "An indispensable classic of American intellectual and social history." - Berenice A. Carroll, editor of "Liberating Women's History: Theoretical and Critical Essays". "After twenty years of relative obscurity, the early-twentieth-century social crusader and author of "Twenty Years at Hull-House" is once again in the spotlight." - Arianne Chernock, Lingua Franca. "The classic account of the development of Hull-House into a vibrant community center for Chicago's immigrants and poor. Addams' memoir is central to understanding the aims and mood of the progressive era." - "The Front Table."

Book News Annotation:

Originally published in 1910, this was Jane Addams' most successful book. Now regarded as a classic of American social history, this first annotated edition is issued on the occasion of the Hull-House centennial.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

One of the most important books ever written in the Unites States, Twenty Years at Hull-House remains a classic because it addresses large questions of human destiny and social justice in terms that are as relevant today as they were one hundred years ago.'Kathryn Kish Sklar, author of Catherine Beecher: A Study in American Domesticity
