Selected Bibliographies

The following bibliographies are a collection of introductory texts on various disciplines on women's and gender studies. All books have been published between 1987-1999. They are either already part of the database's stock or have been found through our own bibliographical research. The bibliographies are a selection and therefore not representative. They will be regularly renewed. The list does not claim or aim to be complete. It is, however, an introduction to the mass of research and publication on women's and gender studies that has flooded the discipline over the last 12 years. Below you will find:
