Product description

From Library Journal

Fencing, in general for men and more particularly for women, is not a subject that one finds books about in many libraries. Happily, this book by the Evangelistas, each of whom has nearly three decades of fencing experience, goes a long way toward changing that. Their book addresses the subject from A to Z, considering such things as the history of women in fencing, women's health issues in this sport, and a section of biographies of notable female fencers. Of particular note are the chapters dealing with how to begin in this sport and a section on fencing not only for girls but for the mature woman. Section 4 deals with the basic concepts of fencing and the three basic weapons the foil, the ep e, and the sabre; a thorough glossary of fencing terms is also included. This reviewer knew little about the sport before reading this book but has gained a basic understanding of fencing and how it has become a viable sport for women. Recommended for public and school libraries where there is a demand. William Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S. Lib., Greensburg, PA
