Abstract

This edited collection is on the cutting edge of the "new military history," with a focus on gender relations during wartime, and the gendered interactions between the military and civil society. The essays in this book are revisions of papers given at a conference held Nov. 7-8, 1997 and sponsored by the Arbeitskreis Militär und Gesellschaft in der Frühen Neuzeit e.V. and the Zentrum für Interdisziplinäre Frauen- und Geschlecterforschung der TU Berlin. The editors of this book, the first of its kind, introduce the theoretical and methodological debate provoked by the conference and by recent historiography. The essays focus on three major topics: the images and representations behind discourses on gender and the military, between the 16th and early 20th centuries; the economic, cultural, and social practices proceeding from these images and discourses; and individuals' experiences and observations of these phenomena.
