Kennedy's unique study explores the arrests, trials, and defenses of women charged under the Wartime Emergency Laws passed soon after the U.S. entered WWI. These trials became important arenas in which women's relationships and obligations to national security were contested and defined.

Industry Reviews

"This well argued, yet readable book, explores a range of dimensions about the workings of the state during times of war. In particular, it illustrates how discourses about patriotic womanhood could shape the kinds of political activity thought appropriate for the female sex."--June Purvis, History Today, April 2001
