From the Publisher
"This volume pulls together information related to this emerging area of study while providing data on many topics not covered throughly elsewhere. Recommended for larger public or academic libraries that serve populations with an interest in gender studies or the social sciences."
"Recommended for public and high school libraries. Academic and research libraries with gender studies or women's studies programs will also find it useful."
"The publication of Girlhood in America is perfectly timed. Extensive scholarly scrutiny of female adolescents and a burst of writings by girls themselves both arrived in the last decade, yet no reference work captured the essence of either. Girlhood in America does so, through over one hundred signed articles written by academics at institutions throughout the United States."
"A groundbreaking work. . . . Because the articles are always lucid, cogent, and informative, they will interest anyone curious about girls' studies. This encyclopedia belongs in all libraries."
"Each signed essay is followed by cross-references and a comprehensive bibliography, and most are accompanied by at least one well-selected, black and white photograph. While there are a number of other titles on the subject, none offers similar breadth and scope. As such, larger collections and those supporting women's studies courses should consider this worthy acquisition."
