From Janice Liedl JLIEDL@NICKEL.LAURENTIAN.CA 10 Aug 1998
Hello everyone! Much to my horror, the university bookstore informs me that Volume 1 of Anderson and Zinsser's text, "A History of Their Own" is out of print and unavailable for a course scheduled to start in September. I desperately need to find either available copies in Canada or a replacement.
I remember a while back there was some discussion about the text being picked up by another publisher--if so, does anyone know the details?
I wouldn't be so worried except that this is for a correspondence course, and if I don't give them SOME sort of textbook, my students will be at sea. So if anyone can recommend a replacement text (covering antiquity through the Renaissance/Reformation, preferably), I'd be grateful.
Bridenthal, et al _Becoming Visible Women in European History_
A new editionm pf A & Z's _A History of Their Own_ will be published by fall 1999. It will contain a new intro, epilogue and updated biblio.
