A sensitive collective biography of twenty-eight women New Dealers and…a description of their tactical means of operation… All can unite in thanking Ware for opening a uniquely political chapter in women’s history and for revitalizing the historiography of the New Deal.Journal of American History

Beyond Suffrage is a welcome addition to the literature of the New Deal. Until now, there has been no adequate treatment of the role of women during this important period. Susan Ware…has based her book on an extensive and careful use of original sources. It is clearly written and analyzed with skill.History

This is an excellent book. The story it has to tell is a new and compelling one.—Kathryn Kish Sklar, University of California, Los Angeles

A fascinating and important study.Labour/Le Travailleur

Jacket: The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, by Anthony Abraham Jack, from Harvard University Press

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
