"Armitage has made a long-lasting and significant contribution to our knowledge, but more importantly she has provided an outline for future work and modeled an approach to women's history that provides a roadmap for that work."

- Katherine G. Aiken, Oregon Historical Quarterly


"In her introduction, Armitage states that the book's major task is "to show how and why women have made - and are still making - the history of the Greater Northwest." She has accomplished that in graceful and inviting prose, in thoughtful analysis, and in compelling stories. Shaping the Public Good also reminds us that Armitage, too, has made history over the course of a career that has refocused the lens through which we now see western history."
