CHOICE Review

Keetley and Pettegrew (Lehigh Univ.) use documents to illustrate the development and evolution of feminist thought in the US, 1600 to the present, creating a dialogue on the conceptual and practical implementations of feminism throughout US history. Poems, essays, courtroom transcripts, and speeches are among the resources assembled. The first volume was published in 1997, the second and third in 2002. The same introduction is used for all three, with an additional preface and acknowledgement in the 2002 volumes. The editors' more selective approach to the choice of texts makes the latter volumes less comprehensive. The editors choose writings that illustrate diverse views of feminism on, e.g., race, class, sexuality, and regionalism. The topics these documents cover are also diverse--labor, slavery, higher education, lesbian identities, and war. Although volume 2 covers 1900-60, five of the documents it includes date from 1892-99. These may simply have been omissions from the first volume, or they may prove to have greater relevance for women in the 20th century. Volume 3 is curious: although it includes a section on black feminism, two documents by bell hooks on black women and feminism are in another section; researchers might reasonably expect to find all documents on this topic under the same heading. The indexes are useful and accurate. This set complements more focused resources (The Revolution in Words, ed. by Lana Rakow and Cheris Kramarae, 1990; and Modern American Women, comp. by Susan Ware, 1989, 2nd ed., 2002). ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
