This unique volume provides a bibliography and analysis of American women's literary interpretations of war and peace during the twentieth century. Chapters cover World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, nuclear war, and fictional interpretations of war and peace that span more than one war or are nonspecific to a certain war. Annotated entries on novels and short fiction provide an analysis of the work's representation of the effect of war on women. Annotations include excerpts from the works themselves and from reviews. The bibliography includes works by such well-known writers as Edith Wharton, Joyce Carol Oates, Cynthia Oick, and Bobbie Ann Mason, as well as many lesser known writers.

The work begins with an introductory discussion of women's fiction on war. Each chapter begins with an introductory overview of the war literature in that chapter. In addition to the annotated entries, each chapter concludes with a list of sources of literary criticism and bibliographic resources. The work concludes with author, title, and subject indexes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
?Carter (Southwest Missouri State University Library) has compiled an interesting and useful selected bibliography of 374 works of fiction that reflect attitudes of women writers toward war and peace from WW I through the Vietnam War and nuclear war. Each chapter covers the literature of a separate war and includes an introduction, sections on novels and short fiction, and a bibliography of literary criticism and sources. Each entry includes an evaluative synopsis of the cited novel or short story. Author, title, and subject indexes complete the volume. The unique focus of women's fictional perspectives on war and peace sets this bibliography apart from other works such as Lucy Dougall's War and Peace in Literature: Prose, Drama, and Poetry Which Illuminate the Problem of War (1982). Carter's selective bibliography will provide access to material useful to students of social activism, women, peace, and nonviolence. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries at all levels.?-Choice
?Every aspect of this bibliography is praiseworthy: it is attractively laid out, easy to use, and excellently annotated. Moreover, while other bibliographies exist on women's war-related writings, this one has the widest scope to date.?-ARBA
?She has produced a unique and comprehensive guide covering novels and short fiction published up to 1991 that reflect women's experiences and interpretations of World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, nuclear war, and "war and peace."?-WLW Journal
