Summary

"American Social Leaders and Activists recounts the fascinating efforts of a diverse and representative group of the most significant, prominent, controversial, and interesting men and women to have attempted to change society from colonial times to the present. This book offers a broad view of reform and reformers, with more than 285 entries on individuals who challenged, if not always successfully, the established social norms of their day. Abolitionists, socialists, communists, temperance crusaders, women's suffragists, peace advocates, civil rights workers, labor organizers, and other social reformers and activists have shaped society for the generations that followed them, and American Social Leaders and Activists provides a unique opportunity for exploring the lives of these dedicated people."--BOOK JACKET.
