From Our Editors

Is there any truth to the notion that women involved in academic pursuits suffer a disconnection from one another and if so, why? Jane Roland Martin explores this issue, examining such sub-topics as re-feminization, the loss of idealism and gender conflicts within the higher education system in Coming of Age in Academe. Aside from the author’s insightful and provocative views, legendary feminist thinker Gloria Steinem further enhances this book with a special foreword.
