In this ... interpretation of the life and work of quintessential "public intellectual" Jane Addams (1860-1935), [the author] explores Addams's legacy thematically and chronologically, recounting Addams's embrace of "social feminism," her challenge to the usual cleavage between "conservative" and "liveral," and the growth of Chicago's famed Hull House into a thriving cultural and intellectual center.-Back cover.
