Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Schultz (coeditor of Encyclopedia of the Democratic Party and Encyclopedia of the Republican Party, M.E. Sharpe, 1997) and Assendelft (political science, Mary Baldwin Coll.) have developed an especially useful reference tool. This single-volume work offers comprehensive coverage of women's struggle for participation in the American political process, with biographical information on every woman elected or appointed at the national level and many at the state and local levels as well. The issues that have been closely identified with women in politicsAreproductive rights, domestic violence, child care, and equal employment opportunityAare thoroughly described. An unexpected but useful element is the description of numerous Supreme Court decisions with implications for women's political and civil rights. Every entry concludes with a bibliography; there is excellent cross-referencing and a comprehensive index as well. The volume includes a 20-page introduction giving historical background and demographic information; four appendixes with the text of 14 significant speeches and documents; tables listing women members of Congress and state houses, first ladies, and cabinet members; women's political organizations and PACs; and a time line of women's progress in politics since the Seneca Falls (NY) Convention on women's rights in 1848. Recommended for libraries supporting women's studies and political science.AJill Ortner, SUNY at Buffalo

"[A] valuable reference work that should be included in academic and medium-to-large-sized public and high school library collections."

ARBA



"Internal cross references, explicit end-of-article see also references, brief article-specific bibliographies, and a deep index come together to give the encyclopedia the same sort of strength women have found by coming together. . . . During the 1970's, a bumper sticker proclaimed that A woman's place is in the House; this encyclopedia's place is in public and academic library reference collections."

Rettig on Reference



"Reference librarians and students will appreciate the convenience of so many resources within one volume. . . . Recommended for all high school, college, and university libraries."

Journal of Government Information



"An excellent index enables the user to find entries easily. . . . [H]aving all the information in one volume makes this source very unique and useful. Highly recommended for academic, public, and high school libraries."
