Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A collection of interviews with 300 women in all branches of military service, this survey opens in a singularly disappointing fashion by rehashing cliches about military women as either lesbians or sluts and the insubstantial role of women in what has been essentially a male field. In due course, however, the authors Dorothy Schneider is a former English professor, her coauthor, a political scientistturn to fresher material, considering such questions as whether women view their tour in the military as a job or career, how they react to regulations that bar them from combat andone that forbids fraternization, i.e., socializing among ranks. The interviewees are candid, and young women contemplating a hitch in the military would be well advised to read these observations about the agonies and satisfactions of the experience.

Format: Paperback
I picked this up hoping to find some insight as to how other women have perceived their roles in the military. Being an active duty Marine, it was quite evident that this information was way out of date. Also, the author seemed to either select the least intelligent women she could find or she picked the absolute worst quotations out of all of her interviews. The enlisted women in the book sound uneducated and often backwoods. The officers sound a bit smarter, but a far cry from brilliant. Either way, I was disappointed in the simple lack of editing in quotations. You don't always have to quote bad English. I applaud the authors efforts in trying to cover such a wide spectrum of topics with such a variety of women, but I think all in all, it is poorly put together, poorly edited and so out of date now that it's worthless as far as a reference.
