Pulitzer prizewinner Carl Degler has written the first general history of women in America for our generation. The book brings into historical perspective one climactic question: How is woman's right to equality of opportunity going to be reconciled with the demands of the family? The modern family, Degler writes, has been shaped by women's search for greater autonomy within the family. " At Odds" shows how that evolution took place, beginning in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

"Degler, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning social historian, has written an epochal book about the evolution of the role of women and the family in the United States."--American Journal of Psychiatry "The most important comprehensive study in the field of social history of American women and the family to be published."--American Historical Review "A pleasure....I predict that it will take its place among that small body of history we call 'indispensable.'"--Peter Gay, Yale University "Degler's achievement is considerable. At Odds is lucidly written and unflaggingly persuasive."--Psychology Today "The most perceptive, the most thoughtful, the most balanced and the most readable work that has ever been written on the evolution of the American family."--Lawrence Stone, The New York Times Book Review "A well-written synthesis with an interesting thesis."--Nancy Page Fernandez, University of California, Irvine "Degler, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning social historian, has written an epochal book about the evolution of the role of women and the family in the United States."--American Journal of Psychiatry "The most important comprehensive study in the field of social history of American women and the family to be published."--American Historical Review "A pleasure....I predict that it will take its place among that small body of history we call 'indispensable.'"--Peter Gay, Yale University "Degler's achievement is considerable.
