Editorial Reviews

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.

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.
