Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Anne Liebst
In 1903 Marie Curie, along with her husband, was awarded the first Nobel Prize in physics for discovery of radioactivity. And in 1970 the Gray Panthers, founded by Maggie Kuhn, became an active and sometimes radical voice fighting against ageism. Information such as this, along with numerous other facts, figures, and events are included in this two-volume set. According to the publisher, the work "explores the role women from all walks of life have played in shaping events and movements from antiquity to the present." The book is international in scope and emphasizes social, political, educational, and cultural turning points that have had an impact on history. All the women included were chosen for their accomplishments and their lasting influence. Entries are arranged chronologically. Sidebar boxes are included to underscore the narrative as well as the more than 120 black-and-white photos and illustrations. Each volume contains a historical overview, a timeline of historical events, a "words to know" section, and a cumulative index. The index is especially easy to use and includes not only the person's name, but subject keywords associated with that person. This source is not meant to be an all-inclusive chronology. It highlights historical figures and events, and without glaring oversights. YAs will find it very easy to use and inviting to browse. It would be an excellent companion to the Women's Almanac (UXL, 1997/VOYA October 1997). Two-volume set. Volume 1: 4000 B.C. to 1849; Volume 2: 1850 to Present. Glossary. Index. Illus. Photos. Chronology.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-This set traces the highlights of women's history from 4000 B.C.E. to A.D. 1997. Both volumes have the same introduction, two part timelines (one of women's achievements and the other showing major world events), glossary, and cumulative index. There are plenty of black-and-white photographs, drawings, and paintings. Gray-shaded sidebars add tidbits that are not listed in the chronology itself. The language is clear and unfamiliar terms are explained in the text. The information is presented as a straight chronology, which make the books easier to use than either Kirstin Olsen's Chronology of Women's History (Greenwood, 1994) or James Trager's The Women's Chronology (Holt, 1994). However, there are some minor drawbacks. For example, the entry for Queen Sammuramat (811-807 B.C.) says that she was "known also as the mythical Semiramis," with a reference to another entry, "c. 2200-2101 B.C. Semiramis founded Babylon." Because there is no explanation of Sumerian mythology, readers will have difficulty understanding the reference back to the earlier period and sorting out the historical person from the mythical figure. Otherwise, this is a decent addition for libraries needing quick information about women's history.-Maureen Connelly, New York Public Library
