Overview

The experience of women in the nineteenth century has generated a wealth of groundbreaking research in recent decades. The Columbia Guide to American Women in the Nineteenth Century presents the best scholarship in a concise, easy-to-use volume. It combines overview articles, a chronological history, and alphabetical entries on key events, movements, organizations, and individual figures to provide an authoritative source of information and interpretation.

The authors emphasize the areas in which scholars have identified important changes [such as suffrage and reform], topics in which researchers are now making great strides [such as racial, ethnic, religious, and regional diversity], and innovative and relatively recent explorations [for example, work on female friendships and female sexuality]. Subjects discussed include domestic life, the changing roles of women in the worforce, immigration, religion, women's education, morality, and the development of feminist and other social and political movements. The Columbia Guide also includes a chapter on resources for further research, including general historical works, biographies and autobiographies, journals, archives, Web sites, novels, and films.
