The original title of the book: Terms & Conditions: Life in Girls' Boarding-Schools, 1939-1979 (Plain Foxed Editions)

Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.

In Terms & Conditions Ysenda speaks to members of a lost tribe - the Boarding-school Women, grandmothers now and the backbone of the nation, who look back on their experiences with a mixture of horror and humour. If you enjoyed Mr Tibbits's Catholic School you'll certainly enjoy this. A number of famous women were interviewed for this book (among them Arabella Boxer, Amanda Craig, Josceline Dimbleby, Valerie Grove, Fiona MacCarthy, Emma Tennant, Ann Leslie, Artemis Cooper, Katherine Whitehorn, Polly Toynbee, Judith Kerr and Anne Heseltine*) but famous or not, all are equally important to the story.

    I was there! It is easy to forget how low expectations were for girls in those days. We were educated enough to get 'play' jobs while waiting to get married and played cricket in order to understand the game when watching our future husbands play in village matches. I learnt how to evade rules and look down on swots or anyone who made a fuss. You just had to get on with it without complaint. This book reminded me of the murky green swimming pool and Matron who took the icing off the special cakes we got in the San to give to the squirrels.

    I'm only a few pages in and am already prepared to endorse it without reservation! Brilliantly written and so evocative - can't praise it highly enough.

    Beautiful book to start with, and then exactly what I expected of it!Reading and loving every bit of it. For those who went to boarding school you can easily relate to so many of the words described.

    Great fun but also rather horrifying by today's standards. It brought back so many memories. Well researched interviews. And engagingly written.

    Fascinating and depressing view of male chauvinism as it dominated the education of upper class English girls - and encouraging resilience shown by so many. Funny and insightful.

    This is my childhood exactly. Got a bit repetitive towards the end but wallowed in happy nostalgia.

    While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself.

    This statistical approach can prove very useful to distribution and/or sales force strategies.The book is divided into seven main chapters that focus on a specific period in the history of the language: they each begin with a discussion of the external history and position of the Irish language in the period, before moving on to investigate the important internal changes that took place at that time.In order to answer these and other pressing questions, we must understand the thinking of those who have come before us.Within the United States, you may freely copy and distribute this work, as no entity (individual or corporate) has a copyright on the body of the work.
