Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Leading historical scholars tell the story of America as women experienced it. The eleven volume "Young Oxford History of Women in the United States" series focuses on dramatic incidents and personal detail of women from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds at home, at work and in pursuit of their dreams. Black-and-white photographs and reproductions of art enhance this excellent series. Each book covers one historical period. Volume 8 addresses American women's experiences in the 1920-1940 time period.
From the Publisher

"This compelling series entry illuminates the social, economic, political, and artistic history of the '20s and '30s. Deutsch draws on a wealth of primary sources to portray the times and thoroughly explores a variety of historical experiences.... Readers are given a truly multicultural introduction to women's history in the U.S.... This book is sure to generate class discussion and add another dimension to students' understanding of American history."--School Library Journal

"Excellent, no-holds-barred... Well written and providing fascinating detail."--Booklist

"Another excellent entry in the 11-volume Young Oxford History of Women in the United States. Deutsch, associate professor of history at Clark University and a Rhodes scholar, puts her impeccable credentials to good use in a lively synthesis of the interacting social, political, and economic forces that reshaped women's roles between the world wars.... Cogent, well organized, and fascinating."--Kirkus Reviews
