Unequal Freedom How Race and Gender Shaped American Citizenship and Labor

£14.99

Product description

The inequalities which persist in America have deep historical roots.
Evelyn Nakano Glenn untangles this complex history in a unique comparative regional study from the end of Reconstruction to the eve of World War II. During this era the country experienced enormous social and economic changes with the abolition of slavery, rapid territorial expansion and massive immigration, and struggled over the meaning of free labour and the essence of citizenship as people who previously had been excluded sought the promise of economic freedom and full political rights.
This is a pre-publication review copy. It is bound in yellow card which, although sunned on spine and borders, is otherwise in fine condition, with tight block and pristine pages.
