Abstract:

London, 1883. Jane Addams came upon a crowd of poor, hungry people all struggling to outbid each other for a measly supply of rotten vegetables. Haunted by the memory of their clutching, desperate hands, she continued her travels through Europe, eventually settling in Chicago. There, with her friend Ellen Starr, she founded Hull-House. In this book, first published in 2010, Addams details the history of an inspiring institution that dedicated itself to providing a resource for cultural improvement to immigrant and poor communities throughout Chicago, and still inspires today.
