Reviews about The Religious History of American Women: Reimagining the Past (2):
Zicelik
Brekus' book can be very interesting at times, and very poorly put together at others. Most of the articles contained therein are well written and well researched. However, ironically, the article that I had the most problem with due to inconsistency and lack of focus was Brekus's own article. A few others suffered similar problems (i.e. the article on Feminism and Jews, it's entirely poorly put together). I did enjoy reading the articles but the unevenness in some of the articles makes it hard to want to go back over them for future reading/discussion.
