Two works published in 1984 demonstrate contrasting approaches to writing the history of United States women.Buel and Buel’s biography of Mary Fish (1736–1818) makes little effort to place her story in the context of recent historiography on women. Lebsock, meanwhile, attempts not only to write the history of women in one southern community, but also to redirect two decades of historiographical debate as to whether women gained or lost status in the nineteenth century as compared with the eighteenth century. Although both books offer the reader the opportunity to assess this controversy regarding women’s status, only Lebsock’s deals with it directly. She examines several different aspects of women’s status, helping to refine and resolve the issues. She concludes that while women gained autonomy in some areas, especially in the private sphere, they lost it in many aspects of the economic sphere. More importantly, she shows that the debate itself depends on frame of reference: in many respects, women lost power in relation to men, for example, as certain jobs (delivering babies, supervising schools) were taken over by men. Yet women also gained power in comparison with their previous status, owning a higher proportion of real estate, for example. In contrast, Buel and Buel’s biography provides ample raw material for questioning the myth, fostered by some historians, of a colonial golden age in the eighteenth century but does not give the reader much guidance in analyzing the controversy over women’s status.
According to the passage, Lebsock’s work differs from Buel and Buel’s work in that Lebsock’s work
文章在三处表达了两部作品的区别：第6行开始的not only...but also说出了L的作品与B的作品的不同之处；第11行的Although both books，此让步句说出了两部作品的共同点，气候的转折句说出了它们之间的区别，即L的作品的处理方式更直接；文章末尾也用in contrast再次表示了它们的区别
C错误，与文章内容相反，文章说L的作品是更直接的面对，因此不可能refuses to take a position
D正确，准确地说明了文章中not only... but also中but also中的内容

为什么address historiographical issues = redirect two decades of historiographical debate as to whether women gained or lost status in the nineteenth century as compared with the eighteenth century. 文章中并没有解决史学问题啊？redirect 不是表再查问的意思吗?
address意思你理解么有！！就是对应的redirect！！！非常的吻合！同时larger 对应的是 two decades !!

你的思路是错误的！ 定位在directly。后面那句是directly的解释，helping to refine and resolve issues 即选项D的同义改写
