From ancient times to the present day, scientifically inclined women in many cultures have had to battle against the traditional belief that men are more cognitively adept than women. At times throughout history, women were persecuted for their attempts to break down 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 mathematical 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.

"This release is an important contribution to the literary discourse about women's lives, sexuality, politics and popular culture in early 20th-century Russia." -- Publishers Weekly One of the most sensationally popular and influential of all pre-Revolutionary novels, Keys to Happiness is set against a panorama of Russian society on the eve of World War I. It tells the stormy tale of Manya Yeltsova, a Russian "new woman" who pursues her dreams and passions as a dancer and free spirit who captivates, among others, a Jewish socialist tycoon and a reactionary Russian nobleman. At the time of its publication, the novel crossed the boundaries of both gender and class to define a new type of literature in Russian society. The editors' informative introduction places the novel within its cultural, political, and social context and makes clear for today's readers its literary and historical importance.

A “marvelous” autobiographical novel of a Jewish girl emerging from hiding in Poland after the defeat of the Nazis, and rediscovering freedom and hope (Publishers Weekly). By the time I was five years old I had spent half my life hidden away in a barn loft. I had vague memories of the world outside and I listened to stories people around me told of that world, but it was hard for me to believe in its existence. Was there really anything beyond the wails of this barn? I knew that there were people out there, people other than my mother, my aunt, my cousin and another family who shared our hide-out, but it was hard for me to imagine them . . . After two and a half years, a little girl returns to the world, liberated by Soviet soldiers who have driven out the Germans. Amid the rubble and chaos, her mother wants only to look to a new future—while her aunt, on the other hand, recounts tales of life before the war. Moving from their devastated village to Bylau, a German town under Russian rule, and then to Warsaw and eventually Montreal, Ann Charney, a winner of the Chatelaine Fiction Prize and two National Magazine Awards, “beautifully evokes her fear-filled young narrator’s gropings toward maturity and a sense of identity in this moving and memorable novel” inspired by her own childhood experience (Publishers Weekly)—an examination of trauma and renewal that also serves as “an illuminating document of an unusual time and place” (Library Journal).
