A Woman's Dilemma
Mercy Otis Warren and the American Revolution

Rosemarie Zagarri

A landmark classic, written by a master historian, A Woman's Dilemma remains the best biography of Mercy Otis Warren. Warren is not a woman lost to history, but her life and legacies are complicated. With her expansive knowledge of early American politics, Rosemarie Zagarri places Warren in her proper historical context, all the while rendering her a full human being.
Catherine Allgor, University of California

Zagarri's deft and perceptive analysis of a complex, extraordinary and too often ignored woman of America's founding generation will allow readers to view the political issues and gender constraints that dominated the revolutionary era through a new lens.
Sheila Skemp, University of Mississippi
