Reviews

A fascinating story of two lives bound by mutual love and political commitment, Comrades and Partners is a major contribution to the history of the American Left. As a feminist biography, it's a model study and certain to please all readers. -- Mari Jo Buhle, author of Feminism and Its Discontents, Brown University Intensely committed to social justice and each other, Grace Hutchins and Anna Rochester embraced a female world of passionate politics located first in women's colleges and evangelical missions and later in Christian socialism and revolutionary communism.Janet Lee presents not only a critically sympathetic portrait of their lives, but also a provocative commentary on the process by which she reconstructed them. Comrades and Partners is stylistically innovative and analytically compelling. -- Nancy A. Hewitt,, Rutgers University Libraries where interest in gender studies and twentieth century social movements is strong will want to add this joint biography of New Englanders Grace Hutchins and Anna Rochester. CHOICE More than just choice of subject seperates Lee's book from other biographical work. Throughout she offers glimpses of her 'Research Diary' and other 'scraps' from her experiences researching and writing the book... Some will gain as much from Lee's insights into the process of writing biography as they do from the story she tells. CHOICE Lee succeeds admirably in grounding her subjects' lives in the tumultuous events of the twentieth century and rationalizing thier seemingly contradictory transitions from Christianity to communism. By placing Hutchins, Rochester, and the Communist Party firmly within the larger tradition of twentieth-century social activism, Lee makes a valuable contribution to scholarship on the American Left. Journal of American History Janet Lee's Comrades and Partners uses an experimental approach to relate the fascinating (and far too little known) lives of Grace Hutchins and Anna Rochester, who lived in a committed relationship with each other and moved from intense Christianity through Christian socialism to communism. Lee's creative method of presentation tells us their story at the same time that she reminds us that it is just a 'story,' constructed by them, by other observers, by Lee, and by us, the readers. -- Leila J. Rupp, University of California, Santa Barbara Intensely committed to social justice and each other, Grace Hutchins and Anna Rochester embraced a female world of passionate politics located first in women's colleges and evangelical missions and later in Christian socialism and revolutionary communism. Janet Lee presents not only a critically sympathetic portrait of their lives, but also a provocative commentary on the process by which she reconstructed them. Comrades and Partners is stylistically innovative and analytically compelling. -- Nancy A. Hewitt,, Rutgers University Highly readable. Fellowship Magazine
