A lively, comprehensive account of the struggle for women's rights at a vital time in our national history.

The American women who worked for our country's indepence in 1776 hoped the new Republic would grant them unprecedented power and influence. But it was not until the next century that a hardy group of pathbreakers began the slow march on the road to autonomy, a road American women continue to travel today. When The Other Civil War was first published in 1984, it was hailed as a thought-provoking narrative of women's lives, among the first books to bring together the new accomplishments of the then-infant discipline of women's history. This revised edition offers a thoroughly updated bibliography, including not only new books and articles but also Internet sources from the past fifteen years of innovative scholarship.

CATHERINE CLINTON, who writes under the pseudonym CC Colbert, is a professor of history at Queen's University Belfast specializing in American history with an emphasis on the south. She is the author of Harriet Tubman: The Road to Freedom, Mrs. Lincoln: A Life and The Other Civil War.
