When General Joseph Hooker pompously said, "The Rebel Army is now the legitimate property of the Army of the Potomac," he was definitely not talking about Jane Perkins. She was no man's property, no army's property and the only one who owned Jane Perkins was Jane herself. Jane never won a medal. She was never honored as a soldier and yet she ranks right up there with the best of any female soldier of any war ever fought. Respected by her superior officers and loved by her comrades, Jane Perkins was the Darling of the Confederacy, soldier in General Lee's Army of Northern Virginia and a woman ahead of her time. Only one soldier ever referred to her as a "lady." She would have loved that!
On June 2, 1864, Jane Perkins arrived at White House Landing and waited with 900 other Confederate soldiers for the next boat to Point Lookout Prison. Jane's days as a Rebel warrior were over but her battles for survival had just begun.

Why Women Rebel presents a global analysis of the extent to which women are engaged in armed, organized rebellions, and why they choose to join such rebellions. Henshaw has collected and analyzed data on women’s participation in over 70 post-Cold War rebel groups. The book provides a theoretical analysis drawing upon both mainstream literature in the social sciences and critical, feminist inquiry on women and political violence to offer a new gendered theory on why women rebel. The book reveals that women are active in over half of all rebel groups sampled and that, while the majority of rebel groups have women serving in support roles away from direct combat, approximately a third of these groups employ women in the conduct of armed attacks, and just over a quarter have women in a leadership capacity. Henshaw reaffirms the idea that women are more likely to be engaged in left-wing political organizations, but does suggest that more conservative or traditional movements may also successfully incorporate women by appealing to concerns about community rights. Addressing several gaps in the current literature on this topic, this book will be of interest to academics in the fields of political science, international relations, security studies, and gender and women’s studies.

Clementa takes place on a future Planet Earth that's unlike any other in speculative fiction. Three hundred years from now, most machines have been broken up for scrap, and the rest are museum pieces. Yet no apocalypse--no disease epidemic, asteroid collision, or nuclear conflagration--has occurred. Agriculture has been abandoned. People live by omnifostering, an advanced kind of hunting and gathering. All animals run wild. All plants grow wild. People enjoy all the literature, music, dance, drama, and art that we enjoy today, plus countless new works created in the meantime. Nations have crumbled into thousands of self-sufficient homelands, each with its own language and culture. Money has become useless. Steeped in their local cultures, most of the people in most of these homelands are as happy as they could wish. Clementa concerns a rare exception--a homeland where an oppressed element of the population awakens to its rage and fights for liberation.

'They will have to choose between giving us freedom or giving us death' So said,in 1913 ,the brilliant orator and suffragette ,Emmeline Pankhurst, just one of the inspiring women who won the vote for women. She remains a heroine for those determined to go to any lengths to change our world and one of those inspirational souls who feature in Rosalind Miles' gallery of famous, infamous and little-know rebels.

Recording the important milestones in the long march of women towards equality through a colourful pageant of astonishing women, we chart the birth of modern womanhood. Women in sport, women in business, women in religion, women in politics and women in power - all female life is there. We end in the present day thrilled with what women have done - and can and will do. Give us Freedom is as brave and as brilliant as its heroines. Formerly published as Rebel Women

In Mapping the Americas, Shari M. Huhndorf tracks changing conceptions of Native culture as it increasingly transcends national boundaries and takes up vital concerns such as patriarchy, labor and environmental exploitation, the emergence of pan-Native urban communities, global imperialism, and the commodification of indigenous cultures. While nationalism remains a dominant anticolonial strategy in indigenous contexts, Huhndorf examines the ways in which transnational indigenous politics have reshaped Native culture (especially novels, films, photography, and performance) in the United States and Canada since the 1980s. Mapping the Americas thus broadens the political paradigms that have dominated recent critical work in Native studies as well as the geographies that provide its focus, particularly through its engagement with the Arctic. Among the manifestations of these new tendencies in Native culture that Huhndorf presents are Igloolik Isuma Productions, the Inuit company that has produced nearly forty films, including Atanarjuat, The Fast Runner; indigenous feminist playwrights; Leslie Marmon Silko's Almanac of the Dead; and the multimedia artist Shelley Niro. Huhndorf also addresses the neglect of Native America by champions of "postnationalist" American studies, which shifts attention away from ongoing colonial relationships between the United States and indigenous communities within its borders to U.S. imperial relations overseas. This is a dangerous oversight, Huhndorf argues, because this neglect risks repeating the disavowal of imperialism that the new American studies takes to task. Parallel transnational tendencies in American studies and Native American studies have thus worked at cross-purposes: as pan-tribal alliances draw attention to U.S. internal colonialism and its connections to global imperialism, American studies deflects attention from these ongoing processes of conquest. Mapping the Americas addresses this neglect by considering what happens to American studies when you put Native studies at the center.
