Editorial Reviews

Review

"Offers the opportunity to expand historians' comprehension of the complex flow of ideas in a given time and place, even when those ideas may have been considered too dangerous or indecorous to be heard." -- "The Historian"

Review

[Untidy Origins is] an admirable introduction to the drama of the woman suffrage movement, rich in its evocation of the time and place.--Women's Review of Books|A wonderful book. Lori Ginzberg reconstructs the world of her protagonist petitioners with exceptional skill, imagination, and empathy. Microhistory at its best.--Charles W. McCurdy, University of Virginia|Inventive and well-written. . . . A considerable tour de force of energetic, local history research-the labor, frustrations, and thrills of which Ginzberg makes visible and illuminating for her readers.--Journal of American History|Ginzberg's work has done a great service by complicating the story of feminism's origins and helping to reshape the agenda for future research.--Journal of Social History|Offers the opportunity to expand historians' comprehension of the complex flow of ideas in a given time and place, even when those ideas may have been considered too dangerous or indecorous to be heard.--The Historian|This is a terrific book. Ginzberg addresses a critical topic--what ideas were possible when--through an intimate examination of a long-hidden petition by six ordinary women demanding the right to vote in New York State in 1846. It is a fascinating story told in a compelling fashion that addresses big issues about politics, identity, and gender.--Nancy A. Hewitt, Rutgers University|[Untidy Origins] is a very readable book for people interested in the state, political culture, reform, and women.--New York Journal of American History|Ginzberg's greatest achievement is to be found . . . in her vivid description of the context within which ordinary women in rural American in the antebellum period could and did construct their political identities. . . . This is an engagingly written book. Ginzberg's use of what she calls 'leaps of imagination' allows her to go beyond analysis of the facts to explore the world of possibilities.--American Historical Review

This was especially interesting to us as it mentioned several women we had been researching for genealogy.
