Abstract:

"This volume is the result of a series of seminar meetings sponsored jointly by the Department of Political Science of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions."

This excellent volume is the first attempt at comparative political analysis of the situation of woman in a substantial range of the world's countries. We can, I think, assume that all these facts are related. They are all aspects of the relative powerlessness of the female half of the world's population, a powerless- ness described here for more than twenty different national societies. Lynne Iglitzin and Ruth Ross have produced a volume that is thoroughly professional as well as comprehensive. The list of nations includes developed and developing, capitalist and socialist or communist, democratic and authoritarian: Italy, Ireland, France, West Germany, Great Britain, Ghana, Iran, Algeria, Columbia, Mexico, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Israel, Norway, and Sweden. There are also useful, more general discussions of women in Black Africa, Latin America, and the "Muslim world," as well as two excellent work studies of women in Hong Kong and in the European Community. For all, the data are substantial and seem reliable. In addition, it is enormously helpful that the pieces provide the basis for such obvious comparisons as, for instance, the participation in politics and in the work force of women in the United States and the Soviet Union. In the current state of the subject, the material assembled is quite simply invaluable. However, the collection also has the higher ambition to develop a framework for the comparative analysis of the political situation of women. Here it is far less successful. Of course, success in making multiple contributors framework. Nevertheless, the collection point, present in the majority of mistaken. It explains persistent weaknesses analysis of politics, in this collection looking carefully at the statements article "The Patriarchal Heritage.” -- Review from http://www.jstor.org (August 30, 2016).
