Flammang (political science, Santa Clara Univ.) offers a prodigious survey of the last 25 years of political science literature concerning women. In doing so, she tracks the way in which feminist political scientists have changed scholarly thinking about political behavior. Further, she explicates the differences among feminist scholars, a group she divides into "accommodationists," who study how women fit into previously existing political frameworks, and "transformationalists," who have had the greater impact on the discipline by reconfiguring traditional concepts. As she considers each facet (mobilization, participation, recruitment, policy, style, agenda setting, and coalition building), she uses the city of Santa Clara, known for its large number of elected women, as a case study, a framework that is not entirely successful in part because the book lacks a conclusion. Nevertheless, academic libraries and large public libraries will surely want to have this important review of the literature.Cynthia Harrison, George Washington Univ., Washington, D.C.
