about

What makes a research project feminist? Connie Miller has complied an annotated bibliography of English-language works that help to answer that question. Each of the titles brought together in this volume addresses some aspect of feminist research. The bibliography includes both general works and those devoted to specific disciplines, and the entries include journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, and reports. The book begins with a general section followed by chapters on specific disciplines. Each chapter begins with an introduction discussing general trends. Anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, political science, and history each merit a separate chapter. A chapter on geography includes architecture and urban planning as well, and a chapter on science covers the hard sciences. A Communications chapter includes mass media and communications, linguistics and speech, film studies, and art criticism. Omitted is the vast body of literature on feminist literary criticism, philosophy, education, nursing, and medicine. The book concludes with both subject and author indexes. The volume will be of interest to feminist scholars from all disciplines as well as to those involved in Women's Studies programs.

?Has feminism changed the content and character of research? Do feminist researchers behave differently? This pioneering bibliography cites more than 400 English-language sources published between the 1920s and 1990 that explore these questions in relation to research tasks, techniques, and approaches. The articles, books, and reports identified here represent work by feminists across a broad range of disciplines from anthropology to science to urban planning (literary criticism, philosophy, education, nursing, and medicine are the noted omissions). While acknowledging feminist resistance to segmented knowledge and compartmentalization, Miller and Treitel nevertheless organize their work by subject-oriented chapters, reasonably assuming that most users will approach the material in this manner. Annotations are informative and readable, their usefulness enhanced by the introductions to each chapter which provide an overview of the annotated sources and "outline the consequences of the feminist critique." Subject and author indexes offer additional access. Together with Wendy Frost's Feminist Literary Criticism, this bibliography begins to map critical terrain in research and scholarship extending far beyond the boundaries of women's studies. An essential addition to all upper-division undergraduate and research collections; also recommended for large public libraries.?-Choice
