10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 860 libraries worldwide
"Girls, Boys, Books, Toys asks questions about how the gender symbolism of children's culture is constructed and resisted. What happens when women rewrite (or illustrate) nursery rhymes, adventure stories, and fairy tales told by men? How do the socially scripted plots for boys and girls change through time and across cultures? Have critics been blind to what women write about "masculine" topics? Can animal tales or doll stories displace tired commonplaces about gender, race, and class? Can different critical approaches - new historicism, narratology, or postcolonialism - enable us to gain leverage on the different implications of gender, age, race, and class in our readings of children's books and children's culture?"--BOOK JACKET
Lines of fire : women writers of World War I by Margaret R Higonnet( Book )
12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 661 libraries worldwide
"Lines of Fire is the most comprehensive collection of women's writing from the First World War. Its authors are a remarkable and diverse group - citizens, soldiers, nurses, journalists, activists, wives and mothers - whose lives were emotionally, economically, and spiritually altered by this devastating war. In works by well-known authors like Rebecca West and Edith Wharton, as well as writers from India, Armenia, Hungary, and the Cameroons, we hear women speaking out on such issues as politics, economic justice, and social reform." "From incisive political treatises to gripping medical accounts, diary entries, poetry, and stunning visual art, Lines of Fire vividly captures the spirit and passion of the women who lived through this divisive time in our history, and enriches our understanding of the twentieth century's Great War."--BOOK JACKET
Nurses at the front : writing the wounds of the Great War ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 642 libraries worldwide
Linked by parallel themes and narrative approaches, the episodes recounted by La Motte and Borden expose the intense, horrific world of the surgical wards and operating rooms. Revealing the moral dilemmas faced by those who make decisions about the lives and deaths of soldiers, they describe the ethical contradictions of saving men who will return to the trenches to kill or be killed. --from publisher description
