Product Description


An excellent choice of essays available for the first time in one volume..
–Choice, November 2001

The editors nicely balance the different schools of feminist theory..
–Nature, Sylvie Coyaund, 12 April 2001

It is a collection of essays and book extracts from the best English-language authors, from well-known feminist writers such as Donna Haraway, Evelyn Fox Kellar, Hilary Rose and Carolyn Merchant, to newer entrants such as biologists Christine Wenneras and Agnes Wold..
–Nature, Sylvie Coyaund, 12 April 2001

One of the strength of the book is that it makes available some wellknown articles that have become rather difficult to obtain..
–American Scientist,, September-October 2001

All the essays included were deemed to have significantly contributed to the development of feminist science: thus, they provide a solid framework for continuing the discussion. Well-written introductions to the book and each of its six sections provide clear signposts for readers, enabling the editors to practice what they preach-that is, to advocate for a more inclusive science by making the dialogue accessible to 'outsiders.'.

Tough Read Dec 26 2012
By Saiken - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a graduate level book! It requires pre-knowledge of some topics, and forces the reader to do personal research to fully understand the content. I personally like it; but others may not.
