Each Mind a Kingdom: American Women, Sexual Purity, & the New Thought Movement: 1875-1920
Beryl Satter (au). Ambitious, engaging & beautifully written, this study of late 19th-century American women’s psychological & intellectual relationship to progressive social movements & quasi-religious self-improvement cults is a groundbreaking investigation that overturns established paradigms in which women are buffeted by history rather than agents of it. Prof. Beryl Satter maps the evolution of mind cure & its internecine rivalries with great detail; she provides a sophisticated critical reading of the New Thought novels that elucidates female ambivalence with respect to love, desire, service, & selfhood; & she consistently interprets developments within New Thought theology in terms of a rich historical context.
