Public vows : a history of marriage and the nation by Nancy F Cott( Book )
23 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,632 libraries worldwide
"We commonly think of marriage as a private matter between two people, a personal expression of love and commitment. In this history, Nancy F. Cott demonstrates that marriage is and always has been a public institution. From the founding of the United States to the present day, imperatives about the necessity of marriage and its proper form have been deeply embedded in national policy, law, and political rhetoric. Legislators and judges have envisioned and enforced their preferred model of consensual, lifelong monogamy - a model derived from Christian tenets and the English common law, which posits the husband as provider and the wife as dependent."--Jacket
Root of bitterness; documents of the social history of American women by Nancy F Cott( Book )
23 editions published between 1972 and 1996 in English and held by 1,630 libraries worldwide
First published when women's history was a newly emergent field, Root of Bitterness has achieved the status of a classic in a burgeoning body of literature. Taking three centuries of American women's experience as its province, the volume extends from the unknown voices of slaves and indentured servants to the writings of such well-known women as Jane Addams. Through a varied collection of documents including diaries, letters, court transcripts, and manifestos, Nancy F. Cott offers the reader glimpses of women's consciousness from the seventeenth century, when women's challenges to social order were interpreted as witchcraft, to the early twentieth century, when the New Woman confronted Victorian ideas of femininity. Root of Bitterness is a significant contribution to American social history. -- Back cover
