This volume brings together the work of historians who consider women as transnational activists from the late nineteenth century to the years following the Second World War. The authors deepen our understanding of the complex ways in which individuals and organizations sought to achieve goals such as women’s rights, peace, racial equality and medical relief. By analyzing the complexities of these women’s lives and activism, the authors challenge the traditional narrative of international relations history and broaden our understanding of women’s history and activism.Table of ContentsPreface by Kathryn Kish Sklar Acknowledgements Table of Contents Introduction, Kimberly Jensen and Erika Kuhlman Mary Clement Leavitt, Japan, and the Transnationalization of the World WCTU, 1886-1912, Elizabeth Dorn Lublin Country by Birth, Country by Marriage: American Women’s Transnational War Efforts in Great Britain, 1895-1918, Dana Cooper Localizing the Global: The YWCA Movement in China, 1899 to 1939, Elizabeth A.

History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence is a peer-reviewed book series which seeks to publish high-quality, pioneering works in the history of international relations, broadly conceived. In addition to disseminating original research in traditional areas addressed by this field, including diplomacy, national security, economic conflict, and the role of individuals, this series also embraces the ongoing expansion of the study of international relations into such areas as culture, race, gender, sexuality, and the environment. Its books will encompass as well the often-overlooked role of intelligence and intelligence agencies in shaping foreign relations.
History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence actively intends to further engagement between the scholarly community and the policy-making one, by demonstrating the continued importance of past patterns, practices, and policies for today’s pressing debates.
History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence includes the subseries New Directions in Diplomatic History. Both series have independent editorial teams that work closely together.
