Review quote

"Eye-opening and invigorating. The editors have, quite sensibly, employed a light editorial hand, preferring to let Mott's speeches take center stage, and to let Mott herself stand in the spotlight. This is a wonderful collection."--Anne Boylan, author of Women's Rights in the United States: A History in Documents "This superb and authoritative collection of speeches and sermons of radical activist and renowned orator Lucretia Mott conveys the breadth and depth of Mott's visionary leadership in abolition, women's rights, religious and political reform, and education and peace."--Ellen Ross, author of The Grief of God: Images of the Suffering Jesus in Late Medieval Englandshow more
