Feminism and Civil Rights:
A Comparative Study of Social Movements

An outstanding chronicler of 20th century American history, William Chafe is a gifted teacher and scholar. The author of many books and articles in the fields of women's history, U.S. politics, and civil rights, he is also a forceful and engaging speaker. For many years he has been a leader in the effort to bring interdisciplinary studies to higher education. His first book, The American Woman [1972], was a pathbreaking monograph in what has become one of the most dynamic sub-disciplines in History. Among his many prestigious awards are those from the Guggenheim, Fullbright and Rockefeller foundations and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
