Reviews

"A groundbreaking collection of essays on girlhood and girls'experiences in colonies throughout the British Empire, Colonial Girlhood covers sources, parts of the world, and cross-cultural experiences that will interest scholars of literature, history, film, cultural studies, women's studies and postcolonial issues. In addition, it should make an appealing classroom text." - Sally Mitchell, Emerita Professor of English and Women's Studies, Temple University, USA
