Lori D. Ginzberg

Untidy Origins : A Story Of Woman's Rights In Antebellum New York, University Of North Carolina Press, C2005.

 

HQ1236.5.U6G56 2005

On a summer day in 1846--two years before the Seneca Falls convention that launched the movement for woman's rights in the United States--six women in rural upstate New York sat down to write a petition to their state's constitutional convention, demanding "equal, and civil and political rights with men." Refusing to invoke the traditional language of deference, motherhood, or Christianity as they made their claim, the women even declined to defend their position, asserting that "a self evident truth is sufficiently plain without argument." Who were these women, Lori Ginzberg asks, and how might their story change the collective memory of the struggle for woman's rights?

Very few clues remain about the petitioners, but Ginzberg pieces together information from census records, deeds, wills, and newspapers to explore why, at a time when the notion of women as full citizens was declared unthinkable, too dangerous to discuss, six ordinary women embraced it as common sense. By weaving their radical local action into the broader narrative of antebellum intellectual life and political identity, Ginzberg brings new light to the story of woman's rights and of some women's sense of themselves as full members of the nation itself.

 

 

 

Lawrence R. Velvel.

Thine Alabaster Cities Gleam : A Trilogy : A Story Of The Last Half Of The Twentieth Century, University Press Of America, C2004-

E169.12.V45 2004

Thine Alabaster Cities Gleam is both a trilogy that describes what academic and professional life were like during the last half of the 20th century, and a work of wide ranging criticism of the dishonesty, failure of duty, violations of rules, elitism, bragging and celebrification that became the road to success in the last 50 years of the century. The first volume, Misfits in America, carries its protagonists through college at the University of Michigan in the late 1950s, the Harvard and Michigan Law Schools in the early 1960s, practicing law for the Department of Justice in the mid 1960s, early years in the academic world, and extensive but fruitless efforts in the late 1960s and early 1970s to have the federal courts perform their constitutional duty regarding the Viet Nam War. .
