Making War, Making Women: Femininity and Duty on the American Home Front, 1941-1945
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Using beauty as a lens through which to understand wartime culture really works in McEuen's capable hands. We see women as consumers, as war workers, as active agents as well as objects of others' desires (consumer desires, sexual desires, war-waging desires). McEuen writes well and clearly, integrating scholarly work with a light touch . . . A significant contribution to scholarship on women's history, beauty culture, the history of beauty, and wartime culture."-Jennifer Scanlon, author ofBad Girls Go Everywhere: The Life of Helen Gurley Brown.
