Influential Texts

I began officially working on She the People less than a decade ago, but in writing it I drew on reading I’ve been doing since I began reading. As it is not an academic book, there is no serious bibliography, but I did want to give credit to some of the books that influenced me the most, and pass their titles on as suggestions.

Sometimes the entire contents of a book influenced just a sentence or two in She the People, and sometimes just a handful of paragraphs in another book shaped an entire chapter. I hope the following books have the same magical influence on your brains that they had on mine.

Chapter 1

The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family
Parlor Politics
Margaret Fuller & The Peabody Sisters
