    This book was first published in 1910, so it is remarkable how relevant and radical it still seems today. Be prepared for some old-fashioned language, but for the most part the book is a very enjoyable read. The author wrote quite a bit, and I'm certainly going to check out the "Second Twenty Years at Hull House," and perhaps her other books as well. But next up is a biography, "Jane Addams and the Dream of American Democracy," by Jean Bethke Elshtain.

    Addams was a very remarkable person, not only because of her role in founding Hull House: She also founded the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and was co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. As the author says, "she devoted her life to caring for the oppressed, and fighting for the rights of workers, women, and children." Other residents of Hull House essentially founded the fields of public health (Dr. Alice Hamilton) and social work. So this is an important story, and well worth your time.
