Home, Nature, and the Feminine Ideal : Geographies of the Interior and of Empire - (Hardcover)
About this item
This book examines how ideas about bodies, homes, and nature were deployed in the service of three interrelated imperatives: the healthy population, the nation, and empire in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Through an analysis of archive material it explores how the role of women in ‘progressive’ reform was a form of governmentality.
