CHOICE Review

In her introduction, historian Nancy Hewitt (emer., Rutgers Univ.) writes that this collection of 12 essays provides "intricate snapshots of key developments" in "the long history of women's suffrage in the [US]" (p. 1). Indeed, from Ellen Carol DuBois's groundbreaking 1975 article to Julie Gallagher's excerpt from Black Women and Politics in New York City (CH, Jan'13, 50-2839), the evolution of the field over almost four decades is readily apparent here. In part 2 of this collection ("Winning and Wielding the Ballot"), six essays make clear the importance of recognizing the intersectionality of race, class, and gender. For example, in her article, "The Gender Gap: A Comparison across Racial and Ethnic Groups," M. Margaret Conway discusses the patterns among distinct groups, based on data collected between 1990 and 2004, that still resonate today. All essays are chapters from books previously published by the University of Illinois Press, which are referenced in the "List of Original Publications" at the end. This collection will work quite well as a companion text in a survey course on US women's history or provide an excellent overview of the history of women's suffrage for general readers. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers, lower-division undergraduates, and two-year program students. --Kathleen Banks Nutter, formerly, Smith College
