American Settlement Houses and Progressive Social Reform: An Encyclopedia of the American Settlement Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The American Settlement Movement was one of the most significant, broadly based reform efforts in the history of the United States, yet surprisingly few people are even aware of its existence. American Settlement Houses and Progressive Social Reform</i> documents, for the first time, the history of the American Settlement Movement in an A to Z format. Included in the Encyclopedia's 230 entries are biographies of key individuals, descriptions of settlement houses and reform committees, synopses of influential writings and reports, and articles on major issues affecting the movement

Book News Annotation:

Historian and librarian Barbuto (Hofstra U.) provides a broad reference to a reform movement during the late 19th and early 20th centuries that is considered to foreshadow social work as a profession. Probably the best known names from the movement are Jane Addams and Hull House in Chicago. The entries discuss people, organizations, significant settlement houses, general reform issues, and important social concerns. They are well cross-referenced and each contains its own bibliography.
