About this book

The First World War cannot be sufficiently documented and understood without considering the analytical category of gender. This exciting volume examines key issues in this area, including the 'home front' and battlefront, violence, pacifism, citizenship and emphasizes the relevance of gender within the expanding field of First World War Studies.

Reviews

“Gender and the First World War is highly recommended for those interested in Central and Eastern-European testimonies of war as the previously mentioned sources can serve as a basis either for socio-cultural or literary analysis. The volume may also be useful for those engaged in gender studies as the experience of the First World War is unquestionably the cradle of our modern view and interpretation of different gender roles and norms.” (Eszter Edit Balogh, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies, Vol. 23 (1), 2017)
