Description - Jane Addams And The Dream Of American Democracy by Jean Bethke Elshtain

This major new interpretive biography--by one of America's foremost public intellectuals--eloquently examines Jane Addams's cultural and political influence on her time and ours. In this eagerly anticipated interpretation of the life and work of quintessential "public intellectual" Jane Addams (1860-1935), Jean Bethke Elshtain explores Addams's legacy thematically and chronologically, recounting her embrace of "social feminism," her challenge to the usual cleavage between "conservative" and "liberal," and the growth of Chicago's famed Hull House into a thriving cultural and intellectual center. Jane Addams and the Dream of American Democracy is a rich and revealing portrait of one of the most extraordinary figures in American history.
