Description

The Reader's Guide to Women's Studies is a searching and analytical description of the most prominent and influential works written in the now universal field of women's studies. Some 200 scholars have contributed to the project which adopts a multi-layered approach allowing for comprehensive treatment of its subject matter. Entries range from very broad themes such as "Health: General Works" to entries on specific individuals or more focused topics such as "Doctors."

Reviews

"Highly recommended for college and university libraries." -- American Reference Books Annual

"A solid addition to all reference collections." -- Library Journal

"Highly recommended." -- College and Research Libraries

"A solid one-volume reference work… A large book--physically as well as intellectually--and one capable of handling inquiries from novices and sophisticated researchers alike… It is an excellent record of the published book literature in the field thus far." -- Feminist Collections

"A welcome addition to the limited resources available in women's studies. Academic and larger public libraries will find this to be very useful as a starting place for further research." -- Booklist/RBB

"Academic and larger public libraries will find this a very useful work to which to refer students and general readers for an overview of research in the field." -- Reference & User Services Quarterly

"Faculty preparing to teach classes on unfamiliar topics, undergraduate and graduate students writing research papers, and other readers needing escort through the rapidly developing field of women's studies will find this guide a useful entry point for their research." -- Choice

"The essays … will help students, as well as scholars venturing into new intellectual territories, select the best books available and give them a sense of how each relates to collective understanding or disagreements about topics in women's studies. It can play an invaluable reader's advisory role." -- Rettig on Reference
