Jane Addams, founder of Hull House, one of the earliest settlement houses in America, was actively involved in many reforms, particularly those associated with urban development. Her first collection of essays. Democracy and Social Ethics, published in 1902, shows her remarkable powers of analysis and her broad understanding of the turbulent changes of her time. Her penetrating observations on the lives and problems of immigrants and factory workers illuminate the persistent problem of relating the ethical standards of the community to the needs of a complex industrial society.
