"It's the women who upset the applecart. Between themselves they talk only about the practicalities of life", declares Duras in this collection of her transcribed conversations with friend Jerome Beaujour. Some of her free-ranging meditations are short and deceptively simple, while many are autobiographical and reveal her most intimate thoughts about motherhood, her struggle with alcohol, her love for a young man, and more.

"Women's History Sources: A Guide to Archives and Manuscript Collections in the United States" is a brilliant 2-volume survey of historical archives which proves the abundance of sources on the female past. Culled from a potential source list of 11,000 repositories, the editor and her associates surveyed the 7,000 replies to their initial questionnaire and identified 2,000 repositories with pertinent collections. The guide offers a state-by-state survey of holdings pertaining to women in a great variety of archives, ranging from large and well-known repositories, and state, county, and local historical societies, to organizational and labor union archives as well as those of educational, religious, and charitable institutions. It is meticulously arranged and was carefully verified. Thousands of entries, which identify hitherto unknown women, provide invaluable biographical sketches, which were checked against a 25,000-name authority file created from the standard biographical guides. The guide is not only an immediately useful reference work, but it is also a compendium of the lives, activities, and experiences of American women. The highly professional Index (vol. 2) is a fine topic guide to every aspect of U.S. social history. It not only enables the researcher to identify thousands of women, state by state and city by city, but it also leads one to the organizations and institutions with which these women were connected. The archives of this nation contain unmined treasures of information on women in their public and private roles-active, organizing, innovating to meet society's unmet needs. The Women's History Sources guide will be an indispensable tool for the scholar, the teacher, the genealogist, and for all those interested in recovering the hidden past of women. -- Gerda Lerner, University of Wisconsin--Madison.
