This volume of essays forms part of an Edinburgh Education and Society Series. It represents a welcome addition to our understanding of the history of British women’s waged work and a challenge to its frequent anglocentrism, constituting an important step in the belated yet now burgeoning fields of Scottish, Welsh and Irish women’s history. Three recent books on Scotland are by women involved in this volume (Eleanor Gordon, 1991; Linda Mahood, 1990; Siân Reynolds, 1989).
