Recensie(s)

This is a highly scholarly endeavor filling a niche in both women's studies and the history of science; together with its companion book, this will be a classic resource for years to come in both disciplines. This volume is highly recommended for all academic libraries. * American Reference Books Annual * Ladies in the Laboratory II is both a valuable compendium of work done by women scientists in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and a fascinating recounting of their personal journeys as women and scientists....By telling their 'stories' Creese brings these early scientists to life and makes them accessible to the reader. One gets a fascinating journey into the lives of exceptional women who overcame serious social and political constraints to lead productive lives as scientists and women....it is a pleasure to read of early work in these fields...Ladies in the Laboratory II includes bibliographic references and the work is well documented. The book is useful for the scholar wishing to study activities in a particular field or country. For the more casual reader, the profiles are the most fascinating part of the work and one can return again and again to read of interesting science and to study intriguing lives. Marie Creese succeeds splendidly in casting a light on the lives of an important group of early women scientists. * Bulletin for the History of Chemistry * Essential. General readers; lower-division undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *
