Abstract
 
Description
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 Amzon
