Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up-This fourth entry in the series covers marriage and courtship customs, work, education, women as missionaries as well as those converted by missionaries, charitable societies organized by women, and the politics of the abolitionist and women's rights movements. Because each chapter deals with a broad topic and has as its concern all classes and races of people, no one topic is dealt with in great depth. The encyclopedic chapters are illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs and reproductions, and include a two-page list of scholarly works for further reading. This academic overview will be more useful for students interested in the history of ideas and their interconnectedness rather than for reports on individual figures or events.

"A solid introduction to the lives and experiences of American women in the first half of the nineteenth century... Goldberg does a fine job of presenting complex issues in language comprehensible to young readers... One of the work's major strenths is the large number of marvellous illustrations that supplement the text. Photographs, lithographs, paintings, and reproductions of documents enliven Goldberg's points, and allow young readers to put faces to names and images to ideas.... Goldberg employs succinct and effective prose to lead his readers through a lively account of this important period... Breaking New Ground represents a step forward in presenting the history of American women to young readers."--H-Net Book Review

"Useful for students interested in the history of ideas."--School Library Journal
