The video above is the opening video for the iPad edition of Seeing Suffrage.
The print edition of Seeing Suffrage will not be out until sometime in 2013, but readers with an iPad won’t have to wait that long — fortunately.
The iPad edition of the book is nearly complete, and plans now are to have it available on the iBookstore by the first week in November.
The iPad edition, because it is electronic and multimedia, will offer much more (and at a significantly lower price) than the print edition. For instance, included in the iPad edition are:
- All of the photographs included in the book, plus some of the photographs of the parade that were eliminated from the print edition;
- Videos featuring the author and other historians and commentators familiar with the parade and the events surrounding it. Michael Keene, a University of Tennessee English professor who co-authored a study of Alice Paul’s protest techniques, appears in a number of these videos;
- Essays and commentary by the author of Seeing Suffrage;
- Additional in formation on the British suffrage movement, including videos, and the British suffragettes;
- A bonus chapter on the meaning an history of the First Amendment, which protects the freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.
The iPad edition of Seeing Suffrage is produced in conjunction with First Inning Press, the publishing arm of the Intercollegiate Online News Network (ICONN).
