About the Author
Gerda Lerner (1920-2013), author of twelve books in women's history, was one of the founders of the field in the 1960s. Her creative scholarship, her organizing work on behalf of women historians, and her leadership in graduate education have been widely recognized and honored. She was past president of the Organization of American Historians, Robinson-Edwards Professor Emerita of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and visiting professor of history at Duke University. Her books include Fireweed: A Political Autobiography.
Reviews
"Lerner has produced a grand and beautiful work, well organized in clean, lovely prose....With scrupulous scholarship and deep humanity, Lerner details her life as a helpless outsider--as well as her family relations and intellectual development.... In a world where accuracy and emotional honesty are often deplorably absent. "Fireweed is a rare and valuable contribution."
