The greatest merit of Jad Adams's 'Women and the vote: a World History' is its global perspective on the struggle for women's suffrage and the institutional response.
Adam's ambitious global survey is rendered accessible through his engaging biographical approach.
Impressive in its reach, authoritative in its meticulous research, Jad Adams's world history of women's enfranchisement takes his reader from early political and feminist stirrings in mid-19th-century Europe and America and up to the present day.
Jad Adams account of the global history of the fight for womens suffrage tells the collective story of thousands of tenacious battlers, clamouring for a place in the seats of power. Women and the Vote is half encyclopaedia, half breathless adventure ... he argues persuasively that there were usually several reasons for the ultimate success of any given campaign, with war proving just as important as lobbying in clinching it.
authoritative, scholarly text
This is global history at its most riveting. Starting in Cheyenne (Wyoming, USA) and finishing in Appenzell-Inner Rhoden (Switzerland), Jad Adams leads us through the world showing how women and their male allies fought against incredible odds to win the right to vote. Their struggles are not only inspirational; they tell us a great deal about the importance of local contexts as well as international solidarity.
