9780814719060: Gender Camouflage: Women and the U.S. Military

Controversy about women in the military continues, yet women's relations with the military go far beyond whether they serve in the ranks.

Gender Camouflage brings together a diverse array of authors to explore the controversy surrounding women's military service, to examine the invisibility of civilian women who support the institution, and to expose the military's efforts to camouflage their support and contributions.

Contributors first consider nurses, servicewomen, military academy students, female veterans, and lesbians. The focus then shifts to military wives, women employed by the DoD, and female civilian military instructors whose work is less visible but no less essential to the institution. The book also examines the experiences of women outside of the military, such as "comfort women" near U.S. bases, women engaged in peacework, and women workers affected by military spending in the federal budget.

Analytic chapters are juxtaposed with first-person narratives by women who have actually been there, including a member of the first gender-integrated class at West Point, the first female civilian instructors at the U.S. Naval Academy, and an African American Air Force Nurse Corps veteran.

Contributors include Connie Reeves, Georgia Clark Sadler, Gwyn Kirk, and Joan Furey.

About the Author:

Francine D'Amico has written on gender, race, and sexuality in the U.S. military and is coeditor of two anthologies on women, gender, and world politics.



Laurie Weinstein has written on military wives and has coedited an anthology on women and the military, and is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Western Connecticut State University, where she also co-directs the Women's Studies program.

Review:

"Bold and uncompromising. Cleverly, he turns a lot of revisionist race history on its head."-"Patterns of Prejudice",

"Insight, authority and scrupulousness are among the virtues of Seth Forman's account of the interaction of two conspicuous minorities in the postwar era. In its clarity and its wisdom, Blacks in the Jewish Mind constitutes a marvelous advance over previous scholarship; and in showing how frequently Jews misunderstood their own communal interests, this book offers a challenge to the present even as the past is illuminated."-Stephen Whitfield, Brandeis University

"In an area where deep emotions and strong ideological feelings pass for information, Seth Forman's book is a model of calm, rational thought. He puts the black-Jewish relationship in a deeper historical perspective than has existed up to this point. Blacks in the Jewish Mind will be welcome to a broad public generally as well as scholars in the field."-Murray Friedman, author of "What Went Wrong: The Creation and Collapse of the Black-Jewish Alliance"

"[A] rich, engaging, scholarly, and nuanced chronicle of an . . . often-tormented interethnic, interreligious, interracial relationship."-"MultiCultural Review",
