Product Description

Review

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.'.
Feminist Collections

From the Back Cover

The Gender and Science Reader brings together key writings by leading scholars to provide a comprehensive feminist analysis of the nature and practice of science. Challenging the self-proclaimed objectivity of scientific practice, the contributors uncover the gender, class and racial prejudices of modern science. The Reader draws from a range of media, including feminist criticism, scientific literature, writings about scientific education, and the popular press. Articles are grouped into six thematic sections which address:
-- Women in Science -- women's access to study and employment in science, combining both analytical evidence and personal testimonies
-- Creating Androcentric Science -- exploring the gendered origins of science at the time of the Enlightenment
-- Analyzing Gendered Science -- feminist methodologies and epistemology for the study of science
-- Gendered Praxis -- examples of how gender bias can affect and distort scientific work
-- Science and Identity -- how science reinforces gender and racial stereotypes
-- Feminist Restructuring of Science -- what is the future of feminist science studies?

In addition to a general introduction by the editors to the volume, and introductions to each of the thematic sections, the Reader also includes a comprehensive bibliography of feminist science studies, making it an indispensable resource for anyone involved in the teaching, research or study of science.

HASH(0x9ecac9fc) out of 5 stars Nursing School Books are required and are chosen carefully! I am an RN now so they worked well :) March 14 2016
By Allfruit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was required for my nursing school - BSN program. I feel the selection of books my program chose were all very informative, to the point and we used the books for the classes that required them. During nursing school most people do not know where their career will take them, there are so many options the RN has available, so building a strong foundation is essential to success in the field. Nursing books are not written to be entertaining they are for educational purpose only. This book definitely offered education. After you graduate school and chose a path then find the best reference book you can find and carry it with you until the day you retire. I always recommend the additional study guide to a book if one is available.
HASH(0x9ecace94) out of 5 stars Tough Read Dec 26 2012
By Saiken - Published on Amazon.com
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.
