Six decades before Betty Friedan's groundbreaking work, well-known American writer Gilman (1860-1935), arguably more famous for her short story "The Yellow Wallpaper," wrote that a woman's arbitrary confinement in the home makes her less of a person, and that a mental myopia comes over her as she focuses only on the proximate to the exclusion of the visionary. The 1903 edition, published by McClure, Phillips, is reproduced from the original pages. It contains neither index nor bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
