Description
Editor Bank (emerita, sociology, U. of Missouri-Columbia), with help from two co-editors (Sara Delamont, Cardiff U., UK; and Catherine Marshall, U. of North Carolina) and an interdisciplinary roster of academic contributors (almost all from the US) have created a two-volume reference dealing with educational theories, research, curricula, practices, personnel, and policies, and their variations across historical and cultural contexts. Approximately 100 essays commissioned for this reference are presented in thematic sections, each introduced with an overview essay. No single definition of gender was imposed; the contributors' various interpretations of the term reflect the state of current research and show some areas where further study with gender as a focus might be useful. Indexing is thorough, by name and subject. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
