American Women's History
A Very Short Introduction

(Oxford University Press, 2015)

Part of Oxford’s popular Very Short Introductions series, this book explores the richly diverse experiences of American women in areas such as political activism, popular culture, the work force, and the family. From Anne Bradstreet to Ida B. Wells to Eleanor Roosevelt, this survey recognizes women as a force in American history and, more importantly, tells women’s history as American history.

"With clarity, grace, and admirable range, American Women’s History compresses a great sweep of the past into a short space."
Nancy F. Cott
