About this book
Arguments about whether girls have been the victims or the beneficiaries of social change have raged through modern history and this fascinating new book takes a close look at the anxieties, horror stories and unease that have accompanied changes in girls' lives since the late 19th century. Carol Dyhouse is a social historian and author of "Glamour: Women, History, Feminism".
The history of young women is a history of trouble. This title takes a look at the anxieties, horror stories and moral unease that have accompanied changes in girls' lives since Victorian times. It shows the importance of disentangling panic from progress if we are to understand the true story of twentieth century girls.
