The attack on Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships set the stage for a Winter Olympics spectacle: Tonya versus Nancy. Women on Ice collects the writings of a diverse group of feminists who address and question our national obsession with Tonya and Nancy and what this tells us about perceptions of women in twentieth century America.

Methamphetamine (ice, speed, crystal, shard) has been called epidemic in the United States. Yet few communities were ready for increased use of methamphetamine by suburban women. Women on Ice is the first book to study exclusively the lives of women who use the drug and its effects on their families. In-depth interviews with women in the suburban counties of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. chronicle the details of their initiation into methamphetamine, the turning points into problematic drug use, and for a few, their escape from lives veering out of control. Their life course and drug careers are analyzed in relation to the intersecting influences of social roles, relationships, social/political structures, and political trends. Examining the effects of punitive drug policy, inadequate social services, and looming public health risks, including HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, the book gives voice to women silenced by shame. Boeri introduces new and developing concepts in the field of addiction studies and proposes policy changes to more broadly implement initiatives that address the problems these women face. She asserts that if we are concerned that the war on drugs is a war on drug users, this book will alert us that it is also a war on suburban families.

Women on Ice opens up the almost unknown story of women's ice hockey in western Canada during the First World War and the 1920s. The Vancouver Amazons, with their championship laurels and a close association with hockey's famous Patrick brothers, were perhaps the most famous, but they were only one of a number of hockey teams that met during the annual Banff winter carnivals to compete for the women's ice hockey championship of western Canada.Meticulously researched and studded with captivating photos, the book introduces us to a whole host of teams from British Columbia and Alberta - the Regents, the Hollies, the Rustlers, the Amazons, the curiously named Swastikas, and many more - teams that deserve to be legendary, but are now largely forgotten.Although the crowds at women's games were sometimes bigger tan the men's, the popularity of women's hockey declined in the 1930s. Subsequently, the history of all women's teams in western Canada was consigned to obscurity. In Women on Ice, Wayne Norton rescues much of the detail and drama of hockey's fascinating history.
