    I think the book will be greatly improved with a revision and the new chapters :) It's smart and interesting, just a little dry in places... A colleague and I are co-authoring a chapter for the second edition of this book. It's on the governmental suppression of women suffragists. I figure I should read the book I'm contributing to, no? :) I think the book will be greatly improved with a revision and the new chapters :) It's smart and interesting, just a little dry in places...
