Summary

This volume is an ideal way to introduce readers to one of Americas most famous women and an early leader of the progressive movement. Jane Addams' original text has been reduced making it more accessible while maintaining the integrity of the original work. Her narrative of life in an immigrant urban neighborhood provides students with an entry into the ideology of the progressive era and the tenets of social activism.
