Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In the latter portion of the twentieth century, no single movement has had a greater impact on social change in political life than the introduction of women into higher office. Now, it is commonplace to see women, of all races and status, occupy prominent national positions, and even, allude to running for the presidency itself. In an easy to read, smartly designed nonfiction work, Twenty-First Century books presents another in its series of books that tell interesting stories about the lives of significant individuals. This time, the story is the useful history about women in American political life, not just those who ran for office, but also famous advisers and appointees (e.g., Eleanor Roosevelt and Sandra Day O'Connor). The book begins in 1774 when 51 North Carolina women agreed to become actively involved in the conflict between England and the colonies, and then moves on to the antislavery movement and to suffrage. The blackand- white photos and reproductions that appear throughout are good touchstones for discussion, and a time line runs from 1774 through 2000 compliments the text. Zeinert's book gives a sharp, historical and highly informative approach to the presence of women in American political life, and serves as a valuable primer for anyone who is even remotely interested in learning about both the sacrifices and glory of being in public office. This is a good resource for both middle and high school social studies classes. 2002, Twenty-First Century Books, 112 pp., Kaplan

Gr 5-9-A useful history about women in American political life, not just those who ran for office but also famous advisers and appointees (e.g., Eleanor Roosevelt and Sandra Day O'Connor). The book begins in 1774 when 51 North Carolina women agreed to become actively involved in the conflict between England and the colonies, and then moves on to the antislavery movement and to suffrage. The author carefully weighs the possibilities of a woman president in the future. The black-and-white photos and reproductions that appear throughout are functional. A time line runs from 1774 through 2000. Zeinert's book gives a better historical approach than Laurie Lindop's Political Leaders (21st Century, 1996; o.p.). Kathleen Krull's Lives of Extraordinary Women (Harcourt, 2000) begins with Cleopatra and covers famous women worldwide.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
