The essays in this volume address the role of women in early American history and, more broadly, in intellectual and cultural history and explore the rhetoric of historiography. Prefaced with an eloquent and personal introduction, these writings illustrate the evolution of a vital field of inquiry and trace the intellectual development of one of its leading scholars.
