In the period between 1775 and 1830 the transatlantic world experienced more or less constant war, touching not only every European country but also North and South America and the Caribbean Islands. The Wars of Revolution and Liberation, inspired by revolutionary or national ideologies, were increasingly fought by conscripted troops and militias alongside professional armies. The conduct of warfare was transformed, as mass armies were deployed by both revolutionary and conservative regimes, deeply affecting the political, social and gender order of the societies involved. Not only soldiers but also civilians - men and women alike - had to be mobilized on an unprecedented scale. This volume addresses the relationship between these wars, developing political and national identities and the changing gender regimes of Europe and the Americas. Looking at both free and slave societies, it explores military and civilian experiences of war and revolution, which shaped as well as reflected gender concepts and practices, in relation to class, ethnicity, race and religion.

Review:

"The unparalleled transatlantic approach of this volume cracks open the previously sealed boxes of gender, slavery, warfare, and commemoration and in so doing revolutionizes the study of one of the most crucial moments in all of world history." - Lynn Hunt, Eugen Weber Professor of Modern European History, UCLA
"A very good collection of substantial chapters that provide a sweeping perspective on gender and the age of revolution, from America, through France, Britain and Germany, to Latin America. These essays demonstrate how the wars that convulsed the Atlantic world, together with revolutions, were the occasion for fundamental changes in notions of masculine citizenship. The authors argue that women were not just passive witnesses, but participated in wars as patriots, provisioners to armies, critics, mothers, and even soldiers." - Anna Clark, University of Minnesota
