Working Americans 1880-2006
Volume VII: Social Movements
Working Americans 1880-2006 Volume VII: Social Movements explores how Americans sought and fought for change from the 1880’s to the present time.
Following the format of previous volumes in the Working Americans series, the text examines the lives of 34 individuals who have worked—often behind the scenes—to bring about change. Issues include topics as diverse as the Anti-smoking movement of 1901 to efforts by Native Americans to reassert their long lost rights. Along the way, the book will profile individuals brave enough to demand suffrage for Kansas women in 1912 or demand an end to lynching during a march on Washington in 1923.
Each profile is enriched with real data on Income & Job Descriptions, Selected Prices of the Times, Annual Incomes & Budgets, Life at Work, Life at Home, Life in the Community, along with News Features, Key Events, and Illustrations. The depth of information contained in each profile allows the user to explore the private, financial and public lives of these subjects, deepening our understanding of how calls for change took place in our society.
A must-purchase for the reference collections of high school libraries, public libraries and academic libraries.
