"... the text's greatest strength [is] having compiled essays in history, political sciences, and gender studies. The diversity of the contributions is truly impressive ... a selection of very fine and engaging essays ... [it] provides a wealth of historical information increasingly needed for cultural and literary inquiries ... allows the reader to select up-to-date scholarship..., to have statistics and historical summaries available for classroom use, and to obtain important references for an in-depth examination."  · Women in German

"... provides information about a group still on the margins of academic discourse to an English-speaking audience. In addition, valuable bibliographic information follows each essay."  · The German Quarterly


This volume, the first of its kind in English, brings together scholars from different disciplines who address the history of women in Austria, as well as their place in contemporary Austrian society, from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, thus shedding new light on contemporary Austria and in the context of its rich and complicated history.
