Editorial Reviews


'The combination of synthesis and interpretation of the existing scholarly field, plus insights drawn from Woollacott's own research, make this an effective undergraduate text.' - Catherine Hall, University College London, UK 'Well-written, comprehensive, and accessible.' - Durba Ghosh, Cornell University, USA 'Angela Woollacott's Gender and Empire is a brief, clear and compelling introduction to the relationship between the construction of gender and the history of the British Empire' - John W Mackey, Journal of British Studies 'For both student and academic readerships, this book offers a wonderful resource, as well as a great example of synthetic writing. Packed with information and populated by a remarkable cast of individual groups, this book is a most enjoyable reading experience' - Fiona Paisley, History Australia '[Woollacott] offers an important synthesis of research done in the field of gender and empire during the last two decades and provides a point of entry for advanced undergraduates interested in engaging with postcolonial feminist scholarship.' - Michelle Tusan, H-Net Reviews 'A succinct yet wide-ranging and accessible study that synthesizes much important recent work.' - Rhonda Semple, H-Net Reviews 'Well-written, well-researched and well-thought-out contribution to an expanding and important field of study. Those new to the area will appreciate its breadth of scope, while those who are familiar with gender and empire will welcome a book that challenges historians to consider where this field of study can, and should, go next.' - Chris Grocott, Journal of The History of Sexuality
