The Library Journal had this to say about The Woman Who Dared to Vote: The Trial of Susan B. Anthony:
Hull (law & history; Rutgers Univ., Camden; Roscoe Pound and Karl Llewellyn: Searching for an American Jurisprudence) examines the 1873 trial of suffragist Susan B. Anthony for illegal voting as a pivotal moment in the quest for women’s suffrage. With an effective use of detail and context, the author gives readers an up-close look at Anthony and her circle of colleagues. Readers will encounter ample background on the women’s suffrage movement, its fascinating inner struggles, and its relationship with the abolitionists. Still, Hull focuses on the arrest and trial, examining the law, legal proceedings, and arguments after Anthony’s challenged vote. She references Anthony’s and fellow suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s own papers, contemporaneous reports, transcripts from the trial, and numerous other primary and archival sources. VERDICT: This rich, readable recounting brings the trial and its principals to life. Serious general readers and specialists in law, American history, and women’s rights will appreciate its depth and readability as well as the author’s skill in illuminating both historic setting and contemporary impact.” (Index not seen.)—Joan Pedzich, formerly with Harris Beach PLLC, Rochester, NY
