A subordinate group, consigned to an ancillary sphere separate if not removed from the larger world, women have for almost four hundred years attempted to disavow the popular presentiment that they are ""females first and human beings second. The anthology here, angled toward unity rather than comprehensiveness and only occasionally yielding to lighter moments (Mr. Dooley), deals with their initial protest against domestic subjugation, their widening insistence on equal rights not only to vote but to achieve equal educational and occupational opportunities.

In this book, Aileen S. Kraditor selects a group of suffragist leaders and investigates their thinking―the ideas, and tactics, with which they battled the ideas and institutions impeding what suffragists defined as progress toward the equality of the sexes. She also examines what the American public believed "suffragism" to mean and how the major events of the time affected the movement.

Kraditor is professor emerita of history at Boston University. Paralleling this profound metamorphous, the suffragist strategy evolved concomitantly from the pursuit of "natural rights to expediency" as a means for women to win the vote. The struggle for women's suffrage spanned a period of seventy years. In 1848 women first met in Seneca Falls, New York and drew up the "Declaration of Sentiments" that included a controversial demand for women's right to vote. However it was the opposition to slavery that gave roots to the suffrage movement.

  • A must purchase for fans of Samuel Johnson. The informed editor, Peter Martin, judiciously has selected portions from Dr. Johnson's wide written legacy and made them available in a convenient form for the modern reader. Mr. Martin allows his hero, Dr. Johnson, to speak for himself without cluttering this book with his own commentary and asides.

    (I do highly recommend Peter Martin's 2008 biography of Samuel Johnson, in which the editor of this book does give his commentary on the powerful life of the English man of letters.)

    I have read many books about Dr. Johnson: this one provided me with the handy opportunity to consider selections from his own writings that I had previously been aware of only indirectly, such as "Lives of the Poets" and "Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia."

  • Well, if I've only given this four stars, and not five, it's not due to any failure of Samuel Johnson's. Everything in this book is fine. But the anthology published by Oxford (edited by Donald Greene) is decidedly better.
    The Oxford Anthology has twice as many of his essays, the Preface to Shakespeare is -complete-, not "From...", and the complete preface to the Dictionary; it also has his short fiction Rasselas (complete), as well as a sermon or two and some early examples of his biographies; the Vision of Theodore, Hermit of Tenerife.
    Honestly, I can't complain about ANY anthology of Johnson; and this will do you very well. But the Oxford Anthology will do you so much better.

  • This is a fairly broad selection of Johnson's works, including a number of less common pieces, selections from the preface and notes to Shakespeare standing out to me, along with part of A Tour to the Hebrides. Johnson is well worth reading and any selection of his works will have value, but the introduction by Patrick Cruttwell is one of the best things on Johnson I have read in a long time and is itself easily worth the price of the book.
