Scarecrow Press, 17 mei 2004 - 304 pagina's
The lives of many of the nineteenth century's most notable women of science are presented in English for the first time in this companion volume to Ladies in the Laboratory: American and British Women in Science. The present volume bridges a considerable gap in English literature available on women from twelve west European countries and their work in the biological and medical sciences, mathematics, and social sciences.

A fascinating analysis of the work of notable women by national group, giving thorough data comparing the contributions of women in choice fields. Among the women presented are more than a few colorful personalities representative of the entire social scale, from a royal princess to the daughter of a Paris slum shopkeeper. Researchers in the field of women's history and science history will find this indexed volume a valuable resource.
