Summary

Now available in two-volume splits as well as the combined version. Through Women's Eyes: An American Historywas the first textbook in U.S. women's history to present an inclusive narrative within the context of the central developments of U.S. history and to integrate written and visual primary sources into each chapter. The result, according to authors Ellen Carol DuBois and Lynn Dumenil, was to ''reveal the relationship between secondary and original sources, to show history as a dynamic process of investigation and interpretation rather than a set body of facts and figures.'' The enormous success of the first edition confirms that the field of U.S. women's history was ready for a ground-breaking textbook that focuses on women from a broad range of ethnicities, classes, religions, and regions and that helps students understand how women and women's history are an integral part of U.S. history.
