New Critical Studies on Early Quaker Women, 1650-1800 takes a fresh look at archival and printed sources from England and America, elucidating why women were instrumental to the Quaker movement from its inception to its establishment as a transatlantic religious body. This authoritative volume, the first collection to focus entirely on the contributions of women, is a landmark study of their distinctive religious and gendered identities. The chapters connect three richly woven threads of Quaker women's lives-Revolutions, Disruptions and Networks-by tying gendered experience to ruptures in religion across this radical, volatile period of history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
These twelve essays consider a breathtaking range of documentary evidence, including the eighteenth-century manuscript poems of Hannah Griffitts, which her friends sewed into their commonplace books, and late seventeenth-century trial records from colonial New Jersey. These sources attest to the contributors' commitment to reconstructing the world and worldview of early Quaker women. * Teresa Feroli, New York University, Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal (EMWJ) *
New Critical Studies on Early Quaker Women is a significant contribution to the burgeoning field of Quaker studies. It is a volume written for a scholarly audience, but maintains a refreshing readability throughout. Its diverse yet cohesive content will undoubtedly inspire future research on early Quaker women, as well as thought-provoking interdisciplinary collaborations for years to come. * Erica Canella, Quaker Studies *
Each of these essays demonstrates just how much of the contribution of women to early Quaker history still remains to be uncovered, and how varied and remarkable were the opportunities for independent, resolute witness that Quaker women discovered, or created. It is a rich and original collection of high quality, based upon extensive primary sources, that is sure to prompt further research. * N. H. Keeble, The Seventeenth Century *
While edited collections often inaugurate the emergence of a nascent topic or methodology, New Critical Studies on Early Quaker Women seems to indicate the field's maturity. On the merits of its extensive twenty-five page bibliography alone, this book offers an excellent point of entry into research on early Quaker women both for those new to the area and experts wishing to update their knowledge. Furthermore, some of its basic assumptions indicate its congruence with maturation in the broader field of Quaker studies, even as the book extends these developments. * Jay Miller, Quaker Religious Thought *
