Abstract

Women, Warfare, and Representation considers the various ways the American servicewoman has been represented throughout the 20th century and how those representations impact her role. While women have a relatively short history in the American military, the last century shows an evolution of women's direct participation in war. The primary focus is on the American case, but Emerald Archer also introduces a comparative element, showing how women's integration in the military differs in other countries, including Great Britain and Israel. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the book draws on military history, theory and social psychology to offer a more complete and integrated history of women in the military and their representation in society.
