I'm actually preparing this summer for my comprehensive exams so this discussion came at a great time.
First off, I am working in the fields (and intersections) of gender, disability, and social welfare policy, and my research deals specifically with disabled veterans after World War I.
I'll just mention a few books that caught my attention as I've been working through my exam lists:
The Journal of Military, Veteran and Family Health aims to maximize the mental, physical and social health and well-being of military personnel, Veterans and their families by publishing world class research to a broad international and multidisciplinary readership of researchers, clinicians, administrators, and policy makers. http://bit.ly/jmvfh_cfp
It's the dog days of summer and most of us are already getting ready for the fall semester. What books, articles or multimedia (movies, documentaries, etc.) have your attention as they relate to Women and War and Women in the Military? What issues should we be discussing here? Are there any books or multimedia that you would recommend for a review at H-Minerva? Please feel free to share your current reading lists with our members.
