Die US-Amerikanerin Jane Addams (1860-1935) und die Deutsche Alice Salomon (1872-1948) zahlten zu den national und international bekanntesten Sozialreformerinnen ihrer Zeit. Von den 1890er Jahren bis zum Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges lieferten diese beiden Frauen und ihre Mitarbeiterinnen wichtige Anstosse zur Losung der asozialen Frageo und der aFrauenfrageo sowie Beitrage zur Neu- und Umdefinition der sozialen Arbeit in den Vereinigten Staaten und in Deutschland. Erstmalig wird hier eine Doppelbiographie dieser beiden Frauen vorgelegt, die exemplarisch die Reformbestrebungen der deutschen und amerikanischen Frauenbewegung untersucht und die wechselseitige Rezeption sozialpolitischer Impulse im transatlantischen Reformdialog aufzeigt. Der Vergleich der in Deutschland lange vernachlassigten feministischen Reformtradition mit ihrem amerikanischen Gegenstuck legt dabei die Revision zahlreicher hergebrachter Interpretationen der Frauenbewegungen in beiden Landern nahe. Ein aa Referenzwerk fur all jene, die zur deutschen Frauenbewegung und zur Sozialreform in Deutschland im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert und in der ersten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts forschen.o Das Historisch-Politische Buch aThis work is a welcome addition to the dialogue of current historians about the development of social justice both as ideology and practice and the role of gender in those developments.o The Journal of American History "Schulers gut geschriebenes Buch ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur transatlantischen Geschichtsschreibung." Historische Zeitschrift "Alle Stationen der beiden Leben sind ausgesprochen gut recherchiert, und es macht Spass, das Buch zu lesen." Ariadne.

This group biography explores the lives, work, and personal relations of nine white, middle- and upper-middle-class women who were involved in the first decade of Chicago's premier social settlement. This "galaxy of stars"--as they were called in their own day--were active in innumerable political, social, and religious reform efforts. The Women of Hull House refutes the humanistic interpretation of the social settlement movement. Its spiritual base is highlighted as the author describes it as the practical/ethical side of the social gospel movement and as an attempt to transform late nineteenth-century evangelical and doctrinal Christian religion. While the women of Hull House differed from one another in their theological beliefs and were often critical of orthodox Christianity, they were motivated by Christian ideals. By showing the interconnections of spirituality, vocation, and friendship, the author argues that individual actions for social changes must take place within communities which provide a level of uniting vision yet allow for diverse actions and viewpoints.

Girlhood, interdisciplinary and global in source, scope, and methodology, examines the centrality of girlhood in shaping women's lives. Scholars study how age and gender, along with a multitude of other identities, work together to influence the historical experience. Spanning a broad time frame from 1750 to the present, essays illuminate the various continuities and differences in girls' lives across culture and region--girls on all continents except Antarctica are represented. Case studies and essays are arranged thematically to encourage comparisons between girls' experiences in diverse locales, and to assess how girls were affected by historical developments such as colonialism, political repression, war, modernization, shifts in labor markets, migrations, and the rise of consumer culture.

Founder of Henry Street Settlement on New York's Lower East Side as well as the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, Lillian Wald (1867-1940) was a remarkable social welfare activist. She was also a second-generation German Jewish immigrant who developed close associations with Jewish New York even as she consistently dismissed claims that her work emerged from a fundamentally Jewish calling. Challenging the conventional understanding of the Progressive movement as having its origins in Anglo-Protestant teachings, Marjorie Feld offers a critical biography of Wald in which she examines the crucial and complex significance of Wald's ethnicity to her life's work. In addition, by studying the Jewish community's response to Wald throughout her public career from 1893 to 1933, Feld demonstrates the changing landscape of identity politics in the first half of the twentieth century. Feld argues that Wald's innovative reform work was the product of both her own family's experience with immigration and assimilation as Jews in late-nineteenth-century Rochester, New York, and her encounter with Progressive ideals at her settlement house in Manhattan. As an ethnic working on behalf of other ethnics, Wald developed a universal vision that was at odds with the ethnic particularism with which she is now identified. These tensions between universalism and particularism, assimilation and group belonging, persist to this day. Thus Feld concludes with an exploration of how, after her death, Wald's accomplishments have been remembered in popular perceptions and scholarly works. For the first time, Feld locates Wald in the ethnic landscape of her own time as well as ours.
