Gail Collins' America's Women (HarperCollins, 0061227226, $15.99) escorted readers through "400 years of dolls, drudges, helpmates, and heroines," thus setting the stage for this inspiring recap of the amazing progress (and occasional setbacks) experienced by women in the past five decades. The first chapters of When Everything Changed will astonish many younger readers with their accounts of the casually expressed sexism of the Korean War and Vietnam War era; even older men and women will bristle with anger at Collins's stories of hard-fought battles for basic human rights. Like its predecessor, this narrative history by a veteran New York Times columnist avoids preachiness as its move briskly forward. Snapshots of a revolution not yet won. Now in paperback.
