MEDIA REVIEWS

"Femininity, Crime and Self-Defense is a superb addition to New Woman studies and a potential rich resource for scholars in late-Victorian and Edwardian literary scholarship." - Lena Wanggren, University of Edinburgh, UK

"Opening up new areas for research in the fields of women's history, but also detective fiction and urban studies, this book's major contribution to Victorian and Edwardian studies is in unsettling the reader's perceptions, insisting that we look again at what we think we already know." - Carolyn Oulton, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK
