The American Settlement Movement : A Bibliography, Hardback Book

The American Settlement Movement : A Bibliography Hardback

Part of the Bibliographies and Indexes in American History series


The American Settlement Movement was an influential part of the social welfare reforms of the Progressive Era.

In an era when America became an urban industrialized nation, the development of the settlement house was interwoven with that of the American city, and settlement workers, living and working among the poor in the city, were in the vanguard of a wide range of social welfare reform initiatives.

This selective bibliography covers titles providing an introduction and overview of the American Settlement Movement. Arranged in six categories, the titles include materials pertaining to the influence of the English Settlement Movement on the United States, general surveys discussing the American Settlement Movement within the context of larger reform efforts, studies focused on the Settlement Movement, biographical titles, settlement workers' research and case studies, and reference works.

The bibliography provides easy access to the literature of the American Settlement Movement.
