Books about Jane Addams--founder of Hull House, social reformer, suffragist, pacifist, and one of the most greatly admired women in American history--come and go, but Allen Davis's account of her life, work, and ideas remains the standard biography. Davis has written not only the best study of Jane Addams, but perhaps the best biography of any great American woman. --William L. O'Neill. With a new Introduction by the author.
