Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"... the text's greatest strength [is] having compiled essays in history, political sciences, and gender studies. The diversity of the contributions is truly impressive ... a selection of very fine and engaging essays ... [it] provides a wealth of historical information increasingly needed for cultural and literary inquiries ... allows the reader to select up-to-date scholarship..., to have statistics and historical summaries available for classroom use, and to obtain important references for an in-depth examination."·Women in German

"... provides information about a group still on the margins of academic discourse to an English-speaking audience. In addition, valuable bibliographic information follows each essay."·The German Quarterly
