About this book

This volume addresses war, developing political and national identities and the changing gender regimes of Europe and the Americas between 1775 and 1830. Military and civilian experiences of war and revolution, in free and slave societies, both reflected and shaped gender concepts and practices, in relation to class, ethnicity, race and religion.

Reviews

'The unparalleled translatlantic approach of this volume cracks open the previously sealed boxes of gender, slavery, warfare, and commemoration and in so doing revolutionizes the study of one of the most crucial moments in all of world history.'

- Lynn Hunt, Eugen Weber Professor of Modern European History, UCLA, Los Angeles, USA

'A very good collection of substantial chapters that provide a sweeping perspective on gender and the age of revolution, from America, through France, Britain and Germany, to Latin America. These essays demonstrate how the wars that convulsed the Atlantic world, together with revolutions, were the occasion for fundamental changes in notions of masculine citizenship. The authors argue that women were not just passive witnesses, but participated in wars as patriots, provisioners to armies, critics, mothers, and even soldiers.'

- Anna Clark, University of Minnesota, USA
