Now, in this lively compendium of articles from the newsletter's first eight years, editors Mary Dee Wenniger and Mary Helen Conroy provide a wild ride across the turbulent gender equity landscape of American higher education. They offer a broad view of the progress women have made toward achieving full and fair career recognition, and assess the distance that remains to be covered. Readers will appreciate the book's blend of serious commentary, sage advice, and healthy doses of wry humor, as well as successful strategies from women who have broken the academic glass ceiling and scaled campus career ladders.
