Women and the American Experience


Show Synopsis

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. This pairing of the concrete and specific with the general and historic creates the most compelling reading experience available in a survey of U.S. women's history.

This book is the text for a class I am taking. It is perhaps the first textbook that I can say I am enjoying! It is very well researched and written, and I am learning things that I never learned before. American history, as taught in elementary and high schools, glides over the depth of the female experience. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in learning about how women's lives have evolved in this country since colonial times.
