Overview

Twenty Years at Hull-House by Jane Addams

The true story of one of America's greatest philanthropists

This is Jane Addams's graphic account of her famed settlement house in Chicago's West Side slums. Covering the years 1889 to 1909, a time when America was fired with fear of subversives and suspicion of foreigners, this book stands as the immortal testament of a woman who lived and worked among the immigrant settlers, the sweatshop toilers, the unwed mothers, the hungry, the aged, the sick, to show them the true concept of American Democracy.

* Jane Addams was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her philanthropic work
* This new edition features an afterword by Manhattan Borough President Ruth Messinger which examines the current state of settlement houses in America
