Book by Harlow, Barbara
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Harlow, the author of Resistance Literature (Routledge, 1987), here attempts to analyze the literature and film by and about women political prisoners. Women in resistance movements like Ireland's Sinn Fein and the Palestinian intifada predominate, but examples from a wide range of both Third World and developed countries are included. Also examined are the nature of resistance movements and the place of women in them. Unfortunately, Harlow fails to derive a theory of women's resistance literature; instead, the book reads like an over-long bibliographic essay. A disjointed and ponderous writing style further diminishes this book's value. Joan Davies's Writers in Prison ( LJ 10/15/90) presents a more cogent analysis of prison literature. Recommended for academic libraries with comprehensive collections in women's studies or literature.
