Review:


"This eagerly awaited book is sure to become a classic...It's the most comprehensive, elegant, and persuasive account to date of the relationships between gender, class, and culture in nineteenth-century America."--Elaine Showalter, Princeton University


"These essays are among the most carefully informed, well-balanced, and informative sources available to readers interested in women's history."--Bram Dijkstra, Los Angeles Times


"A vital historical backdrop for students."--Gertrude Fraser, Cornell University


"Carroll Smith-Rosenberg is unquestionably the most quoted and cited feminist historian in America today. It is a boon to all serious scholars that her works now appear in one major, accessible volume."--Susan Brownmiller

"Carroll Smith-Rosenberg has left an enduring mark on women's history...She ranks among the most exciting, original voices of the consciously feminist historians."--The Women's Review of Books
