Editor Ford (Women and Politics: The Pursuit of Equality) brings together some 500 signed essay-style entries by 51 American scholars. Organized alphabetically, subjects include notable contemporary and historical figures, legal cases, political conventions, organizations, general-term definitions, and complex issues like reproductive rights and the glass ceiling. A series of valuable appendixes offers relevant statistical data and a chronology of landmark political events, and 21 primary-source documents are reproduced at the book's end. An updated complement to Laura van Assendelft and Jeffrey D. Schultz's 1999 Encyclopedia of Women in American Politics.
