Louis Knight, author of Jane Addams Spirit in Action, in collobartion with One Book One Northwestern, explores the impact Chicago had on Jane Addams and vice versa. In defending the rights of anarchists and other radicals and describing the immigrant and working class experience to people of the isolated upper middle classes, Addams came to know Chicago deeply and was changed by the experience.
