Now available in two-volume splits as well as the combined version.
Through Women’s Eyes: An American History was the first textbook in U.S. women’s history to bring together an inclusive narrative within the context of the central developments of U.S. history and to integrate written and visual primary sources into each chapter. The result, according to authors Ellen Carol DuBois and Lynn Dumenil, was to "reveal the relationship between secondary and original sources, to show history as a dynamic process of investigation and interpretation rather than a set body of facts and figures."
The enormous success of the first edition proves that the field of U.S. women’s history was ready for a genre-busting textbook that focuses on women from a broad range of ethnicities, classes, religions and regions and that helps students understand how women and women’s history are an integral part of U.S. history.
ELLEN CAROL DUBOIS is Professor of History at the University of California at Los Angeles. DuBois is the author of Feminism and Suffrage: The Emergence of an Independent Women’s Movement in America, 1848-1969; Harriot Stanton Blatch and the Winning of Women’s Suffrage (winner of the 1998 Joan Kelly Price Award from the American Historical Association); and Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights.
LYNN DUMENIL is Robert Glass Cleland Professor of American History at Occidental College. Dumenil has written The Modern Temper: American Culture and Society in the 1920s and Freemasonry and American Culture: 1880-1930, and she is co-author with James Henretta and David Brody of America’s History.
