In 1889, while many Americans were disdainful of newly arrived immigrants, Jane Addams established Hull-House as a refuge for Chicago's poor. The settlement house provided an unprecedented variety of social services. Addams's inspiring autobiography chronicles the institution's early years and discusses the ever-relevant philosophy of social justice that served as its foundation.


Originally published in 1910, this was Jane Addams' most successful book. Now regarded as a classic of American social history, this first annotated edition is issued on the occasion of the Hull-House centennial. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
