Contents Notes
"This reference presents articles on key people, events, and ideas that have shaped the history of women in the United States. Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition draws on the research and expertise of more than 300 contributors and includes more than 100 new entries. In addition, this volume features photographs and illustrations from the Corbis/Bettman archives, each documenting a piece of history and capturing a layer of the emotion and intensity of a past moment." "Written for librarians, students, and teachers, the Handbook of American Women's History, Second Edition provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary view of a crucial field of historical inquiry. Arranged alphabetically, the nearly 1,000 entries are accompanied by a bibliography of primary and secondary sources to which interested readers can turn for more information. Editors Angela M. Howard and Frances M. Kavenik also provide an extensive subject/name index and end-of-entry cross-referencing that make the book a valuable research tool."--Book jacket.
