FRASER**, ANTONIA:
Boadicea's Chariot - The Warrior Queens.

Imprint: LONDON.WEIDENFELD & NICOLSON,1988.
Edition: UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.
Binding: Hardback , With Dust Jacket
Inscription: Not SIGNED.

UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.NMINT/NMINT.No owner inscrptn,and no price-clip to dw/dj. UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn,383pp,includes chapter reference notes,an index,54 b/w illus,16 colour illus. Boadicea is a living legend everyone knows her story: the stark tale of her stand against the Romans thrills and horrifies each generation.Fraser moves on from examining facts about Boadicea to her 'chariot',the symbol of the journey through history of an infinite variety of Warrior Queens,found in almost every culture.On one hand she recounts the stories of diverse national heroines as Zenobia of Palmyra,Isabella of Spain, Elizabeth I,Queen Jinga of Angola, Catherine the Great and the Rani of Jhansi,right up to the 20thC democratically elected 'Warrior Queens' - Indira Ghandi,Golda Meir and that formidable exponent of the role in our day,Margaret Thatcher. On the other hand she examines,in terms of their history,the themes which occur and re-occur in different civilisations and circumstances: The Tomboy Syndrome,for example,by which the adult Warrior Queen is often granted a mythical 'tomboy' past, or the Shame Syndrome,by which the courage of the Warrior Queen is contrasted with the weakness of the males around her. Sexuality is also a constant theme,as the Warrior Queen is sometimes seen as preternaturally chaste,sometimes as unnaturally voracious - the same female leader on occasion being the subject of both accusations.A remarkable and original work which casts a new light on the familiar heroines of history; and the whole subject of female leadership in time of war.
