Whitman, former obituary editor of The New York Times, has assembled biographic sketches, illustrations, and bibliographies on 504 men and women from the 17th to the mid-20th century-each has earned a place in our national history as ``disturbers of the social peace''. An imposing panel of historians contributed to the work and all major reform areas are covered, including abolition and civil rights, health, labor, temperance, and women's rights. The work is technically faultless; the bibliographies range from manuscript material to secondary works, with all published items dated. Access can be had through an alphabetical list at the beginning or a classified list at the end. Well written and with no competitors, American Reformers will make an excellent and useful addition to any general reference collection.-S. Hildenbrand, SUNY at Buffalo
