`Advanced readers are likely to find much of interest in the Feminist History Reader ... Morgan's was a difficult editorial task and the result is a stylish set of readings which will enable important issues about feminist historical theorizing to be addressed and debated in the classroom, particularly given that Morgan's editorial viewpoint on the field is discussed in such an interesting and in-depth way.' - Feminist Review
