    1. Once you get past the glittery introduction, the rest is incredible, gritty, brilliant source material. Parsons' speeches and writings should be included in all American history texts. Her writings describe not just social ideals and specific calls to action, but describe the reality of the time--the coarseness of the working class struggle for humane working conditions. Moreover, each essay runs a mere 2-3 pages, making it incredibly easy to digest the history in small, dense, vivid pieces.
