Books about Jane Addamsâ€”founder of Hull House, social reformer, suffragist, pacifist, and one of the most greatly admired women in American historyâ€”come and go, but Allen Davis's account of her life, work, and ideas remains the standard biography. "A distinguished work of scholarship, mature, incisive....Davis has written not only the best study of Jane Addams but perhaps the best biography of any great American woman."â€”William L. O'Neill. "The first book that systematically and persuasively separates the real woman from the myth. It will be indispensable to anyone interested in the subject or the period."â€”Rosemarie Scherman, New York Times Book Review. "An important work, especially valuable for its cultural analysis and its sane, careful approach to the biographer's task."â€”Alonzo L. Hamby, History. "Detailed and well researched, this account...is the best thing written on Jane Addams I have seen."â€”Doris Grumbach, New Republic. "An impressively researched, perceptive biography." â€”Gertrude Benson, Philadelphia Inquirer.
