 I personally feel that a text on women's experience of the World Wars would be immensely useful--I am presently working on my dissertation on women writers in WWI and have found many studies like Fussell's "locus classicus" _The Great War and Modern Memory_ to be EXTREMELY light on the history/writing/experience of women.

It reprints selections from British, American, Canadian, and European sources, many long out of print. Since it arose out of a course I teach called Women & War, I naturally thought of it as a text, but the publishers are dubious. Do any of you have any feelings about its utility as a text?] Sounds to me like it would be a very useful addition to the reading list of any course that deals with women's experiences during the wars, as required reading for the weeks that deal with those years and as a secondary text for students wishing to write a paper on the subject. Best of luck convincing your publisher! Sheila McManus PhD Candidate, Department of History York University, Toronto, Canada email: email@example.com
