Endless Praise

"A gift to historians, to social scientists, and to anyone hungering for women's biography in wonderful prose."--Signs

"First rate--Endless Crusade joins a small but significant group of titles in the history of American feminism....It reveals the feminist origins of the twentieth-century welfare state. It is a most welcome contribution."--Donald K. Pickens, University of North Texas

"An excellent study of the impact of the new social science and graduate training on social investigation and reform politics in the early twentieth century....Delightful to read and carries a strong thesis."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"This engaging collective biography...contributes to the current re-evaluation of Progressive reform and the impact of academic social science on it. Fitzpatrick skillfully interweaves unique life histories to chart the transmission of social thought from developing academic fields to a wide range of institutions."--History of Education Quarterly

"Well-written and interesting."--Contemporary Sociology

"A highly informative and original analysis...A significant contribution to the emerging scholarship on women's intellectual and social history. Highly recommended for college and university libraries."--Choice

"This model collective biography greatly illuminates our understanding of how women social scientists reshaped social policy between 1890-1930."--Kathryn Kish Sklar, SUNY Binghamton

"Endless Crusade is a graceful and sensitive portrait of four important women, all of them pioneers in the emergence of the social sciences, all of them prominent reformers. In exploring their lives, Ellen Fitzpatrick illuminates the emergence of intimate connections between the academy and the state in the early twentieth century. She reveals, too, the existence in these years of a distinctly female approach to scholarly research and public action that had profound effects on both."--Alan Brinkley, Graduate Center, City University of New York

"Fitzpatrick's vivid biographies reveal individuals of remarkable purpose and enterprise....Fitzpatrick brings their lives and contributions into respectful and realistic view, as inspiring foremothers and as cautionary figures."--Women's Review of Books

"Engrossing and moving....An important contribution to social history."--Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences

Letters to Jackie

Maybe for Jackie book the two which are relatively short

History's Memory–

The "new" history--the history of ordinary people, of minorities, of women, of African-Americans, of native Americans, of labor, and of social and economic conflict--how new is it? Ellen Fitzpatrick shows in excellent detail how old and deep a tradition in American historiography it really is, how it emerged in the 1880s, deepened in the 1920s and 30s, and reached maturity long before the so-called 'new' historians of the 1960s and 70s called it their own. Exploring the work of historians and social scientists, especially of the years before World War II, she shows the deep continuities of history 'from the bottom up' and the remarkable achievements of the scholars--some renowned, some obscure--who originated modern social history. An important part of history's memory has been recovered.
–Bernard Bailyn, Harvard University
