Product Overview

... Ann Braude still speaks powerfully to unique issues of womena??s creativity-spiritual as well as political-in a superb account of the controversial nineteenth-century Spiritualist movement. a??Jon Butler

Radical Spirits is a vitally important book... [that] has... influenced a generation of young scholars. a??Marie Griffith

In Radical Spirits, Ann Braude contends that the early womena??s rights movement and Spiritualism went hand in hand. Her book makes a convincing argument for the importance of religion in the study of American womena??s history.

In this new edition, Braude discusses the impact of the book on the scholarship of the last decade and assesses the place of religion in interpretations of womena??s history in general and the womena??s rights movement in particular. A review of current scholarship and suggestions for further reading make it even more useful for contemporary teachers and students.
