"The Perfect 36 is perfect....One of the outstanding accomplishments of the volume is that, in addition to the voluminous record it presents of the suffrage movement and its historic antecedents, it also includes fair and reasonably complete accounts of the arguments made by the opponents of suffrage."
. . Jackson Baker, The Memphis Flyer, 6/24/98
" I love the Tennessee book...it's well written, well documented, fascinating, beautiful, solid, fun (great cartoons and short quotes...) it's scholarly and educational.... it's such a contribution to the education of people."
Eagleton Institute of Politics
"The Perfect 36 is a splendid documentation of the efforts of countless women and men in Tennessee, whose struggles ensured ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. It is a highly readable and useful text that is appropriate for undergraduate courses and a wide range of fields history, women's studies, political science, sociology, and American studies. The accompanying video brings home for students all that was at stake in this historic vote."
