THE FEMINIST PROMISE
1792 to the Present Now in
By Christine Stansell Paperback

In this sweeping, definitive volume, Christine


Stansell, a leading feminist historian, explores
the contributions and effects of various
women’s movements throughout the ages,
many of which have been overlooked or lost to
our collective memory until now.
“A landmark book from a brilliant and
insightful historian. Stansell brings
pioneering feminist thinkers like Mary
Wollstonecraft thrillingly alive and places
contemporary American women activists in the contexts of two centuries
of feminist argument. Assured, ambitious, and stirring, The Feminist
Promise delivers the authoritative intellectual history needed to ground
and launch a new era of global women’s emancipation.”
—Elaine Showalter, Professor Emeritus of English, Princeton University
“Never before has the whole scope and breadth of feminism’s democratic
promise been so arrestingly and memorably surveyed. Stansell unifies the
long history of fractious and unruly generations of feminist endeavor
with precise arrows of insight and luminous reflections. Her book is a
must for anyone who wants to understand the situation of women in the
world today.”
—Nancy F. Cott, Jonathan Trumbull Professor of American History,
Harvard University, and author of The Grounding of Modern Feminism

A QUEER HISTORY OF THE


UNITED STATES
By Michael Bronski
Drawing upon primary documents, literature,
and cultural histories, noted scholar and activist
Michael Bronski charts the breadth of lesbian,
gay, bisexual, and transgender history, from
1492 to the 1990s, and has written a testament
to how the LGBT experience has profoundly
shaped our country, culture, and history.
“Bronski has that rare ability to
comprehensively synthesize a large body of
material without simplifying or distorting it,
taking as much care with historical evidence as with the shifts in language
necessary to accurately understand it. Equally prudent with his definitions
and generalizations, the result is a thoroughly accessible and reliable
account that is as deeply informative as it is pleasurable to read.”
—Martin Duberman, Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus,
City University of New York
