The Concise History of Woman Suffrage
Selections from History of Woman Suffrage, by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and the National American Woman Suffrage Association
In their Concise History of Woman Suffrage, Mari Jo Buhle and Paul Buhle have revitalized this classic text by carefully selecting from among its best material. The eighty-two chosen documents, now including interpretative introductory material by the editors, give researchers easy access to material that the original work's arrangement often caused readers to ignore or to overlook.
The volume contains the work of many reform agitators, among them Angelina Grimké, Lucy Stone, Carrie Chapman Catt, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anna Howard Shaw, Jane Addams, Sojourner Truth, and Victoria Woodhull, as well as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and Ida Husted Harper.

"This reissue is great news for all who teach and want to learn about the history of American feminism. Every group of students to whom I have assigned it in the past has praised it for helping them grasp the details and nuances of the movement. Reading secondary works is important, but there is no substitute for the movement's original documents, and this intelligent selection from the original six-volume work makes reading them especially instructive."--Elisabeth Israels Perry, Saint Louis University
