Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic TitleThe Education of Jane Addams traces, with unprecedented care, Addams's three-decade journey from a privileged prairie girlhood through her years as the competent spinster daughter in a demanding family after her father's death to her early seasoning on the Chicago reform scene. It weaves her spiritual struggles with Christianity into her political struggles with elitism and her emotional struggles with intimacy. Finally, it reveals the logic of her journey to Chicago and makes biographical sense of the political and personal choices she made once she arrived there. The founder of Chicago's Hull-House and, later, the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom is portrayed here as a complicated young woman who summoned the energy to pursue public life, the honesty to admit her own arrogance, and the imagination to see joy in collective endeavor.

Synopsis:

A revisionist history of America's premier pacifist and urban reformer.

Synopsis:

"Excellent. . . . "The Education of Jane Addams" provides a detailed, wonderfully complex analysis of Addams's ideas, life, and work."--"Journal of American History"
