Second to None: A Documentary History of American Women. Volume 2, From 1865 to the Present by Crumpacker, Laurie

This is a superb collection. The editors have amassed an unusually wide-ranging set of documents. . . . extremely strong and valuable. I recommend it.-Sarah J. Deutsch, Yale University Tis womans strongest vindication for speaking that the world needs to hear her voice, wrote Anna Julia Cooper, a nineteenth-century African American abolitionist, teacher, and novelist. Argu-ing that the voices of women still need to be heard, the editors of this comprehensive collection have assembled a diverse selection of writings to illustrate the daily lives of ordinary and extraordinary women and the historical significance of their thoughts and deeds. Here are women who are shapers of history, as well as its victims. In diaries, letters, speeches, songs, petitions, essays, photographs, and cartoons they describe, rejoice, exhort, complain, advertise, and joke, revealing womens role as community builders in every time and locale and registering their emergence into the public spheres of political, social, and economic life. The documents also demonstrate the value of gender analysis, for womens differences-in age, race, sexual orientation, class, geographical or ethnic origin, abilities or disabilities, and values-are shown to be as important as their commonalities. Volume 1, which comprises 153 selections, opens with a Navajo origin myth and presents Native American, Hispanic, African, and Euro-American women from the sixteenth century through the Civil War. Both volumes include section introductions that set the historical stage and comment on the significance of the selections. Ruth Barnes Moynihan teaches history at the University of Connecticut. She is the author of Rebel for Rights: Abigail Scott Duniway and coeditor of So Much to Be Done: Women Settlers on the Mining Frontier (Nebraska 1990). A professor of history at Yale University. Cynthia Russett is the author of Sexual Science: The Victorian Construction of Womanhood. Laurie Crumpacker is an associate professor of history at Simmons College and coeditor of The Journal of Esther Edwards Burr, 1754ndash;1757.
