Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thorough and insightful, this edited collection will benefit scholars at every level of expertise....Indeed, it brings to light the gendered nature of institutions and culture. In doing so, it sets the stage for rethinking the fairness of those things that are taken for granted as the ways a democracy 'should' work, and for establishing new standards against which traditions, old and new, should be measured....If the potential of Political Women and American Democracy is ultimately recognized, its influence will ultimately go beyond the gender and politics subfield, to shape the work of the broader U.S. politics field, inspiring scholars previously unaware of gender's centrality to their own work to think in new ways."
Debra L. Dodson, Girl Scout Research Institute, Politics & Gender

"...the book covers a refreshingly wide range of topics centered on a single broad and important question: "What do we know about women, politics, and democracy in the United States" (p. ix)?...[it contributes] greatly to the content of our knowledge in America politics."
Perspectives on Politics, Ange-Marie Hancock, University of Southern California

Book Description
