9780195540864: As We Wave You Goodbye: Australian Women and War

Jan Bassett - one of Australia's most experienced and discerning anthologists - has now turned her attention to women's writings about the wars in which Australia has participated. Dr. Bassett is particularly well qualified to do so, having specialised in the subject of Australian women during wartime. As well as redressing the neglect of this important body of writing, she highlights the variety of genres in which women have evoked the reality of war from either imagination or direct experience.
As We Wave You Goodbye contains more than eighty extracts drawn from fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. The sources, often unfamiliar, are various: novels, plays, diaries, histories, magazines, and collections of poetry and letters.

About the Author:

Jan Bassett, Fellow of the History Department, University of Melbourne.

Review:

`Jan Bassett's splendid and meticulously researched anthology of Australian women's war writing is welcome ... an eclectic anthology, crammed with fine writing, and handsomely illustrated by the work of Australian women artists held by the Australian War Memorial. It makes a significant
contribution to Australian literary and social history, and more generally to our understanding of men and women's separate experience of modern warfare.'
Kate Darian-Smith, TLS, 30/07/99
