Women scholars analyze the interface of gender and the 20th century history of women in education from North America to New Zealand. Influenced by feminist theory, poststructuralism, postcolonial theory, and theories of the educational state, the ten essays orbit about: reflections on memory and historical truth, and narrative inquiries. Key issues include: the need to disclose the "hidden histories" of women as teachers; discriminatory conditions of teaching for women; how conceptions of gender have shaped women's identity as teachers (e.g. that of radical reformer Margaret Haley); and the contributors' role as the subjects of their own studies. Distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
