not yet rated|write a review
Pulitzer prizewinner Carl Degler has written the first general history of women in America for our generation. The book brings into historical perspective one climactic question: How is woman's right to equality of opportunity going to be reconciled with the demands of the family? The modern family, Degler writes, has been shaped by women's search for greater autonomy within the family. " At Odds" shows how that evolution took place, beginning in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
