How a Century of War Changed the Lives of Women looks at the remarkable impact of war on women in Britain. It shows how conflict has changed women's lives and how those changes have put women at the center of peace campaigning.
Lindsey German, one of the UK's leading anti-war activists and commentators, shows how women have played a central role in antiwar and peace movements, including the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The women themselves talk about how they became active, overcoming prejudice and difficulty to do so. The book integrates this experience into a historical overview, analyzing the two world wars as catalysts of social change for women. It looks at how the changing nature of war, especially the involvement of civilians, increasingly involves significant numbers of women.
As well as providing an inspiring account of women's opposition to war the book also tackles key contemporary developments, challenging negative assumptions about Muslim women and showing how antiwar movements are feeding into a broader desire to change society.
This series uses cartoon-style illustrations and humorous narrative text to make key topics in Science and Geography accessible and engaging. This approach encourages children to read about and understand complex ideas. The story looks at a food chain on the grasslands of Africa. We find out how plants create their food from sunlight. We see the way insects feed on plants and birds feed on insects. How zebras feed on grass, and lions feed on zebras. Each creature has its own source of food - and forms part of the food chain.
The book also contains an experiment, useful websites and an index. Reviews for previous titles in the Science Works series: 'Making science accessible and fun for younger readers is no easy task, but the author/illustrator partnership of Bailey and Lilly makes a brilliant job of it. Bright appealing cartoon-style artwork and a continuous narrative text treat each topic in the form of a story.
