0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on April 7, 1999
Format: Hardcover
Lucid, persuasive and illuminating, this book makes an important contribution to the very contemporary issue of best educational practices. The scholarship here is of the first order and the diversity of approaches that the authors have selected enhances any reader's understanding of effective teaching and learning strategies. The long view, coupled with the shorter view; the rigorous statistical analysis, joined to the more philosophical reflection on the subject, ensure a comprehensive and helpful insight into women-centered education for any reader. One need not be an expert to find the ideas that the authors put forth both thought-provoking and inspiring. Everyone should be interested in effective education and this book makes that possible.
