Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Weimann's splendid research recaptures the 1893 Chicago exposition... a strong narrative line makes the book readable even for nonspecialists..." — Library Journal
New York Times Book Review
"The narrative is fascinating...in uncovering the politics of women whom we have been [told] had not politics."
Chicago Tribune
"The political machinations of the factions, their joint battles against the men...are recreated so vividly that each page...becomes a treasure.
Washington Post
"A treasure trove for anyone interested in the fine and decorative arts, late 19th century American culture, or the early years of suffragettism...Altogether an unusual and extremely thorought example of historical reconstruction."
Monitor Christian Science
"One of the most fascinating, though forgotten stories in the history of women's achievements."
