Synopsis

The third volume in the much-admired The Colour of Time series.



A Woman's World, 1850-1960 explores the many roles - domestic, social, cultural and professional - played by women across the world before second-wave feminism took hold. Using Marina Amaral's colourized images and Dan Jones's words, this survey features women both celebrated and ordinary, whether in the science lab or protesting on the streets, performing on stage or fighting in the trenches, running for election or exploring the wild. This vivid and unique history brings to life and full colour the female experience in a century of extraordinary change.



Photographs include: Queen Victoria, Edith Cavell, Josephine Baker, Eva Peron, Virginia Woolf, Clara Schumann, Martha Gellhorn, Rosa Parks, Agatha Christie, Frida Kahlo, Harriet Tubman, Florence Nightingale, Hattie McDaniel and Gertrude Bell; as well as revolutionaries from China to Cuba, Geishas in Japan, protestors on the Salt March, teachers and pilots, nurses and soldiers.

Dan Jones is a historian, broadcaster and award-winning journalist. His books, including The Templars, Crusaders and, with Marina Amaral, The Colour of Time and The World Aflame, have sold more than one million copies worldwide. Marina Amaral is a talented digital colourist. Her work has featured on the BBC and in the Evening Standard, Washington Post and Le Figaro and she has collaborated with the History Channel, PBS, English Heritage and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. In 2021, Marina was named on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List.

“A Woman’s World, 1850-1960” is the third volume in the bestselling ‘The Colour of Time’ series. Written by historian and broadcaster Dan Jones and features Marina Amaral's beautiful, colourized photographic images. This huge and informative compilation of women, focuses on eleven areas of the roles they have played in history - Women at Play Women in School Women at the Wheel Women at War Women in Charge Women in the Arts Women in the Streets Women on Stage Women in the Wild Women on the Shop Floor Women in White Coats This is quite a book to behold. Perfect for dipping into when you take a fancy and you certainly learn some very interesting facts about women who played an important part in history. Whether celebrated or not, these women across a varied selection of roles are all worthy of their mention. Told through women’s pictures, lives and experiences, they serve as a tribute/tableau of admirable and brilliant females, all unique and remarkable. I was particularly interested in ‘Women at War’, roles mostly familiar as being filled by men. But without the aid of women, the wars would not have been won by either side and the bravery and dedication shown, deserves high praise. The photograph of the ‘munitions factory’ was amazing and quite took my breath away. Colourful, interesting, informative and easy to read, this wonderful collection of impressive lives lived would adorn any coffee table or reference section in educational institutions and is a must for all school libraries! #AWomansWorld - 5 stars
