Paperback / £25.99

Changing Women, Changing History is a bibliographic guide to the scholarship, both English and French, on Canadian's women's history. Organized under broad subject headings, and accompanied by author and subject indices it is accessible and comprehensive.

"Some bibliographies transform the users' understanding of a field, even as they guide the reader to creative use of a body of scholarly writing. Diana Pedersen's bibliography of writing on the history of Canadian women is a must for every library and every individual researcher because it moves well beyond compilation to scholarly analysis." - Jill Ker Conway, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "In this revised edition, Diana Pedersen presents a truly comprehensive bibliography that will prove invaluable to scholars in the field of women's history. The subject and author indices, the numbering of each citation, the short bibliographic essays will greatly facilitate our research by making easily accessible references in both French and English. In French such a tool is called incontournable." - Andrée Lévesque, McGill University "Created by a historian for students and teachers of history, this outstanding bibliography will appeal to scholars in many other fields. Comprehensive and beautifully organized, the study, as a whole and each of its sections are provided with short scholarly introductions, clearly outlining the various sub-fields in the genre. An indispensable guide to the Canadian literature in women's and gender history." - Alison Prentice, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto
