The Breckinridges of Kentucky

Portada
University Press of Kentucky, 2006 M06 1 - 393 páginas

" Across more than six generations -- beginning before the Revolutionary War -- the Breckinridge family has produced a series of notable leaders. These often controversial men and women included a presidential candidate, a U.S. vice president, cabinet members, generals, women's rights advocates, congressmen, editors, reformers, authors, and church leaders. Along with success, the Breckinridges, like other Americans, faced hardship and war, contended with race, lived through difficult family situations -- including a sex scandal -- and encountered personal and political failure. An articulate, opinionated, and frank family, the Breckinridges have left a detailed record that allows us a vivid recreation of the range of American history and society.

I accessed this book during my study on Sophonisba Breckinridge as a member of the Chicago Hull house community and as an integral player in the formalization of Social Worker education. and was delighted with the amount of content and the glimpses given into the family dynamics of a clan who so influenced the fields of Social Work, Social Reform and helped form bases for future progress in those areas.
