About this Item

8vo. (23 cm.) 286p. Frontispiece black and white captioned photo plus 4 black and white cartoons by Charles Dana Gibson first published in LIFE: The Nursery (1899); Like Other Girls (1894); Uncle Jasper; and The Overworked American Father (1897) and The Ambitious Mother (1902). Index. Red cloth with gilt letters on the spine. Just touches of wear to extremities, spine very slightly faded, gilt very slightly dulled, else near fine to fine with no internal markings. Dust jacket very lightly soiled and with a slightly sunned spine but not price-clipped. Written to explain why American women play so dominant a role, yet often remain frustrated, resentful and neurotic, ¿this author, an experienced anthropologist, [sees] the conflict in the soul of many American women [to be] primarily a sexual conflict, connected with the much heralded American Way of Life, where men are supreme in business and women in society. In this historical study Dr. Dingwall traces the development of the American woman from colonial days onwards, believing that only through attention to the historical roots from which United States culture has evolved can the riddle be solved. Coming to the twentieth century, he surveys the whole pattern of modern American life as it affects women at all ages. His picture is built up and documented almost entirely from American sources.¿ [from the dust jacket]. Bookseller Inventory # 008170
