Library Journal ReviewPaul (1885-1977), one of the most significant feminist activists of the 20th century, provided bold and decisive leadership for the women's suffage movement, helping lift it out of the doldrums, embracing more public and controversial tactics, and securing U.S. women the right to vote in 1920. For the remainder of Paul's life, she worked for an Equal Rights Amendment and promoted the rights of women abroad. Lunardini (Equal Suffrage to Equal Rights: Alice Paul and the National Woman's Party, 1910-1928) offers an approachable introduction to Paul's work and importance, tracing the feminist's history from her early training with radical British suffragists through her support for the Equal Rights Amendment until her death at 92. VERDICT This concise book includes reprinted primary sources, study questions, and extensive notes and bibliography, and is perfect for college students. It is a valuable addition to the "Lives of American Women" series, and is recommended for all collections on the subject and as well as for relevant high school or college courses.-Theresa McDevitt, Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania Lib.
