As the 20th century nears its close, 17 essayists look back over a hundred years of dramatic change in Minnesota. Drawing upon their expertise in such fields as historical geography, social history, and American studies, these writers create a multifaceted view of the ways in which Minnesotans have reshaped their state. Included in the book is Marjorie Bingham's essay devoted entirely to Minnesota women of the 20th century and their active role working for the right to vote, equal education, equal working opportunities and pay, and involvement in politics and religion.
