Choice Review

In the effectiveness with which they lead the reader to appropriate sources of information, these abstracts deserve five stars. The succinct descriptions Leavitt writes for each article and report leave the reader well informed about content. More than 900 citations are grouped by 23 broad subjects (e.g., salaries, mentors and networking, women bosses, beauty and health). Each section clearly outlines the type of research and general conclusions reached in that subject area during the five-year period. The work continues Leavitt's Women in Management, 1970-79: A Bibliography (CH, Apr '81), which listed 500 citations for the decade. Almost twice that many appeared in the following half-decade (1981-86), indicating the increased interest and research in the field. The two works complement one another, giving an introduction to trends and concerns in this specialized area of the women's movement. The early work, however, lacks the helpful abstracts of the 1988 imprint. Particularly valuable to academic and large public libraries is the section titled "Core Library Collection," in which Leavitt recommends a list of best titles. Well indexed by author, title, and subject. Recommended for academic and public libraries. -P. A. Wand, University of Oregon
