A to Z of Women in Science and Math by Lisa Yount

Praise for the previous edition: This very readable collection of essays and sketches is a useful quick reference point to begin research...Recommended for general audiences.--;Library Journal ...a top-notch choice for high school libraries.--;School Library Journal ...for school and public libraries needing additional biographical information on women in the sciences, this volume is a nice young-adult tool with a reasonable price tag.--;Booklist From ancient times to the present day, scientifically inclined women in many cultures have had to battle against the misguided notion that men are more adept than women at things of the mind. At times, women were persecuted by the law or by mobs for breaking traditional gender barriers. Today, women scientists and mathematicians must continue to defend the quality of their work and demand the respect they deserve in the math and scientific communities. A to Z of Women in Science and Math, Revised Edition profiles 195 women who fought against these stereotypes throughout history and all over the world to forge new discoveries and theories that would eventually change the way we view science. This thoroughly revised book updates the story of each individual to the present day and features 38 new profiles. Among the profiles included are those of chemists, astronomers, geologists, environmental scientists, and a range of other professions and careers. In addition, new photographs have been added, and the bibliography has been updated. Subject indexes allow the reader to search by such professions as microbiology and paleontology. Additional subject indexes organize individuals by country of birth, country of major scientific activity, and year of birth. New profiles include: *Temple Grandin, who designs slaughterhouses that create less stress for livestock *Nalini M. Nadkarni, who uses the skills of a mountain climber to explore the forest canopy *Sherry Turkle, who examines the way humans interact with technology.
