Abstract

Bool Reviews 415 services. The prevalence of women veterans’ mental health concerns and barriers to care are also included. The book’s final chapter provides an historical overview of gender differences in com- pensation, benefits, and pensions for women veterans with disabilities, beginning with the colonial era to the present. This edited volume covers the breadth of women’s experiences at war, bringing together data that are not often found in similar books or articles. One of the book’s limitations is the absence of information on the experiences of female gay, bisexual as well as transgendered service members. As pointed out by the editors, it is difficult to find someone to author such a chapter, which in itself highlights the issues of stigma, discrimination, and potential reprisals. From a womanist perspective, there is little attention paid to racial and ethnic differences among women at war though racial and ethnic minority women experience greater social and emotional consequences than their white counterparts serving in the military. From a social work perspective, the book gives equal weight to women’s physical, medical, social, and emotional consequences of being at war. Social work educators will find the book to be an essential resource in helping
