British women were deeply invested in foreign policy between the wars. This study casts new light on the turn to international affairs in feminist politics, the gendered representation and experience of the Munich Crisis, and the profound impression made by female public opinion on PM Neville Chamberlain in his negotiations with the dictators.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a valuable addition to the literature on women's involvement in foreign affairs. A focus on gender encourages the reader to look at appeasement differently, while the author's attempt to dig below the rhetoric of politicians and newspapers and to seek to uncover the perspectives of rank and file women is to be welcomed, and should provide an incentive for further research in this area." (June Hannam, Twentieth Century British History, Vol. 28 (2), March, 2017)

"This book provides an enormous amount of information on British women's interest in foreign affairs in the 1930s ... . Readers interested in British women in the political arena will find plenty to draw upon here." (Robert Boyce, Cercles, cercles.com, November, 2016)

"Julie Gottlieb has done the scholarly community an enormous service by providing the first gendered history of British foreign policy in the age of appeasement. ... Guilty Women undoubtedly provides a much-needed and long-overdue corrective to the tendency within the existing literature to position women on the periphery ... . This is a work of admirable scholarship and ambition, and the ever-expanding canon of appeasement literature is richer for the contributions it makes." (Professor Daniel Hucker, Reviews in History, history.ac.uk, July, 2016)

"Julie Gottlieb's impressive study is a wonderful example of their complementarity and, in her skilful hands, their combination profoundly recasts the familiar story of the `Munich Crisis' of 1938. ... Bringing gender and women's history together, Julie Gottlieb has thus provided us with an immensely rich and rewarding analysis of appeasement. ... this work of stunning craftswomanship and path-breaking scholarship." (Marc Calvini Lefebvre, Revue Francaise de Civilisation Britannique, rfcb.revues.org, July, 2016)
