    The detailed biography of Jane Addams is an astonishing display

    The detailed biography of Jane Addams is an astonishing display of the growth of a leader: the transformations made from a youth striving to please her father to becoming a steadfast revolutionary leader for human rights. This book details not only the events that shaped Jane, but also demonstrates changes in her thought processes through intimate letters written to her best friend. This inspiring account of her life is a motivational lesson on the impact one person can have through dedication. It’s a call to arms for the readers to create social change and strive for the equality that Jane worked towards establishing.

    very good hisorical book

    Jane Addams life story parallels the struggles that life parallels the struggles that the progressive movement faced which had a humble beginning, to a booming movement that wheeled great political power, to being crushed under the world war. This biography explains many questions that people have about Jane Addams, one of the most influential women at the beginning of the 20th century. Jane had such a great effect on her time, and to understand the Progressive Movement you must understand Jane Addams.This book is great for anybody, especially historians and history enthusiasts, who want to lean about and understand more about the Progressive movement and a major driving force behind the movement. Again to learn about the life of Jane Addams is to learn about the growth, and sustainment of the Progressive movement.
