Originally published in 1989. This detailed bibliography focuses on women’s education in the developing nations of Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and the Middle East. It contains annotations for about 1200 published works in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German. The entries include extensive research journal, monograph and book literature items, including chapters hidden in books that don’t have women or education as their main theme. The citations are organised thematically but with geographic divisions within each of the 15 sections and each entry has a decently detailed summary. It is prefaced by a useful article written by Gail Kelly on the directions in research at the time and the development of women-centric approaches.

Reissuing works originally published between 1945 and 1998, this collection of books on the intersection of gender and education looks at various issues within schools and teaching, from careers of primary school teachers to the experience of single-sex schools, to adult learning provision for women. Some of the books included here look at research undertaken into the issues of gender within education while others consider an individual aspect, such as the education of women in developing countries, or the construction of masculinity. This set offers a wide spread of coverage on a key topic in education.
