Synopsis:

This study critically explores the lives of women in Britain during the immediate postwar period (1945-64), and re-examines the current conception of the 1950s as a nadir for women - when the values of domesticity and motherhood were paramount. The book focuses on the experiences of black, Asian and white women in the postwar period. It provides an assessment of the impact of demobilization and examines central issues such as paid work, domesticity and motherhood.

About the Author:

Robert Foulke is Professor Emeritus at Skidmore College. He is on the advisory board of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Maritime History and is the editor of the Cambridge University Press edition of Joseph Conrad's The Mirror of the Sea

Book Description Taylor & Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Imagining Home offers a unique examination of ideas and images of home in Britain during a period of national decline and loss of imperial power. In exploring the relationship between gender, 'race' and national identity, it higlights the continuing importance of empire in imaginings of the nation during a period of decolonization. Analyzing the significance of colonialism and racism in shaping ideas of motherhood, employment and domestictiy, it traces the process by which Englishness was increasingly associated with domestic order, and the home and family constructed as white.Drawing extensively on oral history and life-writing, Imagining Home examines the multiple meanings of home to women in narratives of beloning and unbelonging. Its focus on the complex interrelationships of white and black women's lives and identities offers a new perspective on this period. Seller Inventory # AAV9781857283518
