Cold War Women : The International Activities of American Women's Organisations, Paperback / softback Book

Cold War Women : The International Activities of American Women's Organisations Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


For too long, American women have been hidden in the history of the Cold War. In *Cold War women* Helen Laville recovers their significance by examining the activities and ambitions of American women's organisations in the long period of uneasy peace. After the Second World War, women around the globe claimed that to avoid more death and devastation in the Atomic Age, they must promote internationalism and strive together for a peaceful future. However, as the Cold War escalated, American women abandoned the internationalist outlook of their foreign sisters in favour of solidarity with their national brothers. Far from being advocates of internationalism, many of these women became active agents for Americanism. This fascinating study will be invaluable to those in the field of gender and women's history, cultural studies, and American history. -- .
