Nancy Woloch teaches history and American Studies at Barnard College, Columbia University

Nancy Woloch teaches history and American Studies at Barnard College, Columbia University. She is the author of 'Muller vs. Oregon: A Brief History with Documents' (1996); co-author of 'The American Century: A History of the United States Since the 1890s' (1998), with Walter Lafeber and Richard Polenberg; and co-author of 'The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People' (4th e. 2000). Chalk it up to dynamic, inherently interesting content that is well written

Although a bit dry at times, overall I think Woloch does a good job in a concise book intended as textbook to try to present two sides of controversial issues, and often cite at least one scholar in that area.

Jul 07, 2017 Tammy rated it it was amazing. The first time I read this book it was for my Women's History class many years ago. My granddaughter needed some information for her AP class, so I picked it up to see if it could help her. Once I started I just kept reading.

This comprehensive synthesis of women's history from the 17th century to the present draws on the past three decades of scholarship in the field. The book's unique dual-chapter format pairs a narrative episode that vividly evokes a particular individual or event with a synthesis chapter that places each episode carefully within its broader historical context.

  • I got the Kindle version and it is extremely hard to read. It seems that instead of being a Kindle digital version as advertised, it is really a pdf file. There is no font enlargement available and when I zoom, the page moves all over the screen when I move to the next paragraph. No matter how slowly I move to the next paragraph, I end up somewhere that I don't belong. I even got reading glasses. I am very disappointed with the layout of this book. Had I known that I was getting a pdf file, then I would have bought the hardcover.

  • Pages were falling out and the cover as well as the binding are worn. Not good for what the description said.

  • I needed this book for school and decided to purchase it through ebay. It came quickly and it was of good quality.

  • Books came on time and in great condition. Thanks for having the mini session rentals. This is a major plus!

  • came in not great condition but good enough for the price

  • I tend not to take the time to review books that already have a substantive number of Amazon reviews. Simply adding another voice to the chorus probably doesn’t benefit the readership world all that much. I’m taking an interest in this title, however, since it has so many indifferent and negative reviews. And I see things differently.

    My 1984 first-edition paperback was put out by Knopf. I think most people would agree that Knopf has had quite a knack, over the years, of finding and publishing quality. The number of times that this title has come out in new editions and has been cited by other well-received publications would seem to indicate that its original publisher didn’t misjudge on this one either. Chalk it up to dynamic, inherently interesting content that is well written. The author has “tried to rely on women’s voices and to reconstruct the past as women might have seen it.” (p. vi)

    Even a casual tour through the well-constructed index will take you to a wide range of things worth knowing as this book makes American women more historically visible. For instance, a section on “Piety and Purity” shows that women contributed “to a softening of [theological] doctrine: the old idea of infant damnation had little appeal to American mothers. Ministers, accordingly, granted that Christian nurture could outweigh original sin.” (p. 121) Under “Front Page Woman,” depression-era soap operas “(thirty-eight of them by 1938) revealed predicaments with which entire home-bound families, but especially home-bound women, could identify. Indeed the formula for serials required that each episode begin and end with severe troubles.” (p. 458) “Wives and Widows” makes it clear that “although the eighteenth-century woman commonly expected to spend most if not all of her adult life bearing children and taking care of them, she had no legal control over her children—a serious disadvantage in the event that her marriage was a disaster.” (p. 68)

  • This text was originally purchased as a college text requirement- it's classic and well worth the time as it encompasses the female experience throughout history. I reviewed, and passed to my daughter. This is a classic worth laying eyes on at least once.
