Book Description:

A Companion to American Women's History contains 24 original essays by leading scholars on the most critical themes and topics in American women's history. Since the field began 30 years ago, there have been no historiographical surveys of American women's history commissioned for one volume until now. This collection highlights, in a series of critical and accessible essays, the most recent important scholarship on the key debates and future directions of this popular and contemporary field. The coverage is wide-ranging in its timeline and themes, including such topics as the colonial family, antebellum reform, the Civil War, marriage, health, sexuality, education, immigration, World War II, work, consumer culture, and feminism. Differences among women rooted in race, ethnicity, class, and region are highlighted throughout. Arranged chronologically, these essays represent the finest critical work to date on the burgeoning history of American women. A bibliography at the end of the book contains hundreds of secondary readings to guide further research. Scholars and general readers will find this to be a crucial source of information and interpretation of American women's history.
