Summary "In Dots & Dashes, Jehanne Dubrow explores what it's like to be a military spouse and an academic--to be a member of two communities that speak very different, and often conflicting, languages--and what it means, as a military wife, to live in a sealed environment, one defined by strict rules and regulations"-- Provided by publisher
