"In this collection, Sandra Harding offers a broad spectrum of feminist research... an incisive introduction... With this collection, Harding offers an outline of possibilities to students and practicing social scientists whose questions lie outside the dominant traditions of inquiry... " —Harvard Educational Review

"The quality of the essays, plus that of the introduction and collection, commend this book to both the reader who would explore these issues and she/he who would know more." —Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

In this collection, Sandra Harding interrogates some of the classic essays from the last fifteen years of feminist social science literature in order to explore the basic and troubling questions about science and social experience, gender, and politics which they raise. A valuable introduction to crucial methodological and epistemological issues.

Indiana University Press
