Description: New introduction by Anne Firor Scott
First published in 1938, this pioneering work in American social history was rediscovered by Anne Firor Scott, herself a noted historian, and published in Norton paperback in 1972. Now Professor Scott has written an introduction newly assessing the importance of this richly detailed classic.
Out of a wealth of documentation, and often from the words of the people themselves, Spruill's account brings these women's lives out of the shadows-opening a usable past that was not there before. In the words of Arthur Schlesinger, Sr., it is "an important contribution to social history to which students will constantly turn."
"From these pages emerge, in truth, a new woman, almost unknown to historians when this book was published."-Anne Firor Scott
