Book News Annotation:
McManus (classics, College of New Rochelle) examines the impact of modern feminism on the discipline and profession of classics in the US over the past 30 years, combining an overview of historical and current developments with in-depth analysis and examples. She defines and illustrates distinctive aspects of a feminist approach to scholarship, argues that gender analysis is crucial in traditionally masculine areas as well as in the study of women, and explains theoretical and methodological principles developed by feminist classical scholars seeking to recover information about women from scattered evidence.
