"[An] impressive collection... Academic women's studies and history collections should include this work as an essential and welcome addition. All academic libraries should regard this as highly recommended. Larger public libraries wishing to both broaden and deepen their offerings in the areas of European women's history should consider as well... Christine Faure has edited a work without direct comparison that achieves its stated goal admirably." -- Reference & User Services Quarterly
"The essays, written by established scholars, are authoritative... Many libraries will find both the breadth of the coverage and the length of the articles (mostly 12,000 words) useful for nonspecialist patrons who want a substantial but not overwhelming discussion. Recommended for public and academic libraries." -- Library Journal
"Recommended.." -- Choice
