Natural Allies

Women's Associations in American History

Natural Allies, based on painstaking research begun more than 30 years ago when Anne Frior Scott was preparing her now-classic The Southern Lady, is clear and highly readable. It will appeal not only to historians and sociologists but also to anyone working with or studying voluntary organizations.

"Both an engaging survey of existing scholarship and a plea for additional research. . . . With wry humor and impassioned scholarship Anne Frior Scott teaches us that the more we are able to learn about women . . . 'the more we will understand about the society that has shaped us all.'"
-- New York Times Book Review
