Women Against the Iron Fist
Alternatives to Militarism, 1900-1989Book - 1989
Describes the significant contribution made by women to pacifist thought in this century. Oldfield (English, U. of Sussex) begins with an analysis of the beliefs underlying Bismarckian military doctrine. She then contrasts militarism with the pacifism of such female thinkers as Maude Royden, Simone Weil, Virginia Woolf, Sophie Scholl, Helen Keller, and Christa Wolf.
