Informed by the generous feedback of many of“Inventing"’s loyal users—student readers andinstructors from every region of the nation—the fourthedition of Glenda Riley’s dynamic text remains the mostinclusive, accessible, and affordable choice as a core text for theWomen’s History course, as well as useful supplementaryreading for courses in Women’s Studies and the U.S.survey.

Completely up to date, with expanded coverage of women in themilitary, sports, women’s healthcare, divorce, and women ofcolor—especially Spanish-speaking, American Indian, AfricanAmerican, and Asian American women—this well-balanced,interpretive account portrays the myriad of women’sexperiences as they shaped and were shaped by American history, andredounds as a remarkable feat of insight and inclusion. As always,each volume features a stunning photographic essay, a visualaccount from the colonial era to the present.

Excellent read!!! If this book doesn't open your eyes to a woman's place in American history, past and present I don't know what will. I've never been so angry, moved and proud all a once. A definite must read for women.
