Peace and bread in time of war by Jane Addams( Book )

57 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1922 during the "Red Scare," by which time Jane Addams's pacifist efforts had adversely affected her popularity as an author and social reformer, Peace and Bread in Time of War is Addams's eighth book and the third to deal with her thoughts on pacifism. Addams's unyielding pacifism during the Great War drew criticism from politicians and patriots who deemed her the "most dangerous woman in America." Even those who had embraced her ideals of social reform condemned her outspoken opposition to U.S. entry into World War I or were ambivalent about her peace platforms. Turning away from the details of the war itself, Addams relies on memory and introspection in this autobiographical portrayal of efforts to secure peace during the Great War. "I found myself so increasingly reluctant to interpret the motives of other people that at length I confined all analysis of motives to my own," she writes. Using the narrative technique she described in The Long Road of Woman's Memory, an extended

Newer ideals of peace by Jane Addams( Book )

58 editions published between 1906 and 2019 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'In this her second book, Jane Addams moves beyond humanitarian appeals to sensibility and prudence, advancing a more aggressive, positive idea of peace as a dynamic social process emerging out of the poorer quarters of cosmopolitan cities. Her deep analysis of relations among diverse groups in U.S. society, exemplified by inter-ethnic and labor relations in Chicago, draws widely useful lessons for both domestic and global peace, in an early formulation of today's "globalization from below". In an unprecedented, revolutionary critique of the pervasive militarization of society, Addams applies her scathing pen to traditional advocates and philosophers of "negative" peace, founders of the U.S. constitution, militarists, bigots, imperialists, and theories of "democratic peace" and liberal capitalism. Instead she sees a slow, powerful emergence of forces from below - the poor, the despised, workers, women, ethnic and racial communities, oppressed groups at home and abroad - that would invent moral substitutes for war and gradually shape a just, peaceful, and varied social order. An extensive, in-depth introduction by Berenice Carroll and Clinton Fink provides historical context, analysis, and a reassessment of the theoretical and practical significance of "Newer Ideals of Peace today".'

"Her reflections on the women's movement, the peace efforts during the World War, prohibition, and immigration under the quota are valuable as acute observations not from the sidelines but from the very center of the field.

The long road of woman's memory by Jane Addams( Book )

31 editions published between 1916 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wild rumors of a Devil Baby in Hull-House brought a flood of curiosity-seekers to Jane Addams's door. To her surprise, many of the most adamant about seeing the Devil Baby were older, working-class, immigrant women." "These women, as a rule rather withdrawn from the community, seemed to spring to life in response to this apocryphal story - and to be inspired to tell stories of their own. The tales they shared with Addams in the wake of the Devil Baby were more personal and revealing than any they had previously told her: stories of abusive mates, lost or neglectful children, and endless, ill-paid menial labor endured on behalf of loved ones. In response to these sometimes wrenching conversations, Addams wrote The Long Road of Woman's Memory, an extended musing on the role of memory and myth in women's lives." "Seen in the context of Addams's personal connection with these diverse women and their stories, her larger efforts to bring about equity and social justice appear all the more courageous and vital. Charlene Haddock Seigfried's new introduction sets Addams's observations in the context of pragmatist and feminist traditions."--BOOK JACKET
