Volume VII: Social Movements explores how Americans sought and fought for change from the 1880's to the present time. Following the format of previous volumes in the Working Americans series, the text examines the lives of 34 individuals who have worked -- often behind the scenes -- to bring about change. Issues include topics as diverse as the anti-smoking movement of 1901 to efforts by Native Americans to reassert their long lost rights. Along the way, the book will profile individuals brave enough to demand suffrage for Kansas women in 1912 or demand an end to lynching during a march on Washington in 1923.
