American Women during World War II documents the lives and stories of women who contributed directly to the war effort via official and semi-official military organizations, as well as the millions of women who worked in civilian defense industries, ranging from aircraft maintenance to munitions manufacturing and much more. It also illuminates how the war changed the lives of women in more traditional home front roles. All women had to cope with rationing of basic household goods, and most women volunteered in war-related programs. Other entries discuss institutional change, as the war affected every aspect of life, including as schools, hospitals, and even religion. American Women during World War II provides a handy one-volume collection of information and images suitable for any public or professional library.

Nineteenth-century British periodicals for girls and women offer a wealth of material to understand how girls and women fit into their social and cultural worlds, of which music making was an important part. The Girl's Own Paper, first published in 1880, stands out because of its rich musical content. Keeping practical usefulness as a research tool and as a guide to further reading in mind, Judith Barger has catalogued the musical content found in the weekly and later monthly issues during the magazine's first thirty years, in music scores, instalments of serialized fiction about musicians, music-related nonfiction, poetry with a musical title or theme, illustrations depicting music making and replies to musical correspondents. The book's introductory chapter reveals how content in The Girl's Own Paper changed over time to reflect a shift in women's music making from a female accomplishment to an increasingly professional role within the discipline, using 'the piano girl' as a case study. A comparison with musical content found in The Boy's Own Paper over the same time span offers additional insight into musical content chosen for the girls' magazine. A user's guide precedes the chronological annotated catalogue; the indexes that follow reveal the magazine's diversity of approach to the subject of music.

Στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’50, σε μια μικρή πόλη της Ιρλανδίας, η Έιλις, ένα κορίτσι από φτωχή οικογένεια, όπως και οι περισσότεροι νέοι δυσκολεύεται να βρει δουλειά. Μόλις της προταθεί μια θέση στις ΗΠΑ καταλαβαίνει ότι δεν μπορεί να αρνηθεί, και αποφασίζει για πρώτη φορά να αφήσει πίσω την εύθραυστη μητέρα της και την αδερφή της.Η απόφασή της θα την οδηγήσει στο Μπρούκλιν όπου υπομονετικά θα χτίσει μια καινούργια ζωή γεμάτη όνειρα για το μέλλον της. Κι ενώ προσπαθεί να διαχειριστεί τη νοσταλγία που νιώθει για ό,τι άφησε πίσω της, θα γνωρίσει τον πρώτο της έρωτα και μαζί την υπόσχεση για μια καλύτερη ζωή. Το παρελθόν της όμως σύντομα θα την καλέσει ξανά, αναγκάζοντάς την να διαλέξει ανάμεσα στην πατρίδα, στην οικογένεια και στον έρωτα. Με εγκράτεια, δεξιοτεχνία και εξαιρετική συναισθηματική αντίληψη ο Colm Tóibín, ένας από τους καλύτερους Ιρλανδούς συγγραφείς της εποχής μας, συνέθεσε μια συγκλονιστική ιστορία για το πεπρωμένο. Το Μπρούκλιν τιμήθηκε με το Βραβείο Costa 2009, και ήταν υποψήφιο για το Διεθνές Λογοτεχνικό Βραβείο IMPAC Dublin 2011 και το βραβείο κοινού Goodreads 2009.
