Editorial Reviews

Review

“Like all truly great works, it transcends pat categories. Readers will find none of the trendy cant and rant one has come to expect from the sisterhood of gender feminists. Dr. Marks demonstrates a clear admiration for her subjects, but never allows that affection to compromise her objectivity. This book would be a wonderful present from a mother to her daughter, but perhaps an even better gift from a father to his son. . . . The book is a delight to read, comfortable to hold, and a treat for the eyes.”--Stephen L. Hardin (from pre-pub copy, rec’d 4/24/96
