From Library Journal Despite its lack of plot, forced dialog, and flat characters, this is a significant book. A sequel to Gilman's feminist classic, Herland (1916), this continues yet radically changes that book's utopian vision. Ellador leaves Herland with her new husband, Vandyck Jennings, one of the three men who discovered the world populated entirely by women. After a tour of Europe and Asia, they return to "his" land, the United States. More sociological tract than novel, the book analyzes social, economic, and political problems, discussing overpopulation, gender roles, environmentalism, the care of children, and racism?issues that are surprisingly relevant today. The final pages of the book provide an unexpected twist that completes the reader's understanding of Gilman's overall purpose. Recommended for academic libraries.?Yvette Weller Olson, City Univ. Lib., SeattleCopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review ?Gilman's sequel to Herland continues to advance her social theories. However, With Her in Ourland (first published in 1916) is a dystopian work; it chronicles the experiences of characters Van and Ellador, following their departure from Herland as they travel the world during the Great War. As she does in much of her fiction, Gilman urges radical social reform as a way to save the world from chaos and destruction.... Deegan provides a cogent argument for reading Herland and With Her in Ourland as two halves of a greater whole.... Reommended for all public and academic collections.?-Choice
