about

Women have always been involved in war; a fact that has generally been acknowledged, but not always documented. The importance of the availability of good print, nonprint, and Internet resources for the study of women's involvement in war is especially important given the limited coverage of the subject in textbooks. Women Engaged in War covers the war efforts of females of all ages actively involved in various battles, wars, and war-time activities. Coverage ranges from Sybil Ludington's ride on horseback to rouse American soldiers to fight against the British to women's roles as nurses, doctors, spies, soldiers, correspondents, and photographers to women's roles on the home front. The scope of the book is multinational and multicultural and spans from the earliest historical records of women warriors to the present. Fiction, picture books, nonfiction, biographies, autobiographies, collective biographies, oral narratives, reference books, journal and periodical articles, and nonprint and electronic resources are included in this annotated guide. This helpful reference concludes with professional resources for educators; primary resources; an international directory of memorials, monuments, and museums; classroom activities, lessons, and booktalks; and recommendations for building a core collection.
Hilary S. Crew was formerly an associate professor at Kean University, Union, New Jersey. She is the author of Is It Really Mommie Dearest? Daughter-Mother Relationships in Young Adult Fiction (The Scarecrow Press, Inc., 2000).
