& Francis Publishing

This timely and provocative book looks at contemporary American women and their experiences with guns. Scrupulously balanced, this new paperback edition features a new appendix containing a wealth of primary source documents that help illuminate both the dangers and attractions of guns in our society.

Book News
A professional nonfiction writer (not a gun-user) offers a wide-ranging, subtle discussion of American women's experiences with guns in the 1990s and the connection between their personal experiences and the polarized national discourse on guns, gun risks, gun control, and gun rights. Her approach is consistently thoughtful and critical, both concerning her own prejudices and of the propaganda and hyperbole ladled out on all sides. Annotation c.
