CHOICE Review

Anna Howard Shaw is a giant in the history of the women's suffrage movement. Remarkably, the published material on Shaw has been rather limited until the release of this magisterial work. Shaw, also a physician and one of the first female Methodist ministers, had a particularly significant role in the evolution of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, which concluded with her highly publicized break from NAWSA during her tenure as president of the organization, after several of the leaders took a very militant route in their protest movements during WW I. In her compelling book, the author brings Shaw's historic relationship to NAWSA to life in intimate detail. The exhaustive research conducted by Franzen (Albion College) and her outstanding analysis have produced a volume that provides a very full sense of the forces that compelled Shaw throughout her long life in public service and activism. While this is a scholarly work of remarkable academic acumen, its polished, passionate prose and intellectually stimulating content make it an accessible and thoroughly compelling read for anyone. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries. T. Maxwell-Long California State University, San Bernardino
