Description:

"The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain, is floating in mid-air, until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life." -Jane Addams, Twenty Years at Hull-House

"The book is highly recommended....This is in no sense a guide book to settlement work, or a recipe for clubs and classes. It is the life story of Jane Addams. With that clearness and gentleness which characterize all of Miss Addams' writing, but with those stirring forces in reserve which reveal themselves in the mintage of every phrase, she has set down in one volume the story of her life, the history of Hull House, and her conception of the philosophy of social progress....Now that all societies and schools are judged by their efficiency as social agencies in their communities, the trials and tribulations, the hopes and victories of Miss Addams will be a guide to every one interested or actively engaged in work undertaken for the welfare of the community." -Mind and Body

"No one in this country has come closer to the problems held out by poverty than has Miss Addams." -Philadelphia Public Ledger
