Nobel Prize Women in Science
Their Lives, Struggles, and Momentous DiscoveriesBook - 1992
Exploring the reasons why only nine of the more than 300 recipients of the Nobel Prize in science have been women, science writer McGrayne examines the lives and achievements of 14 women scientists who either won a Nobel Prize or played a crucial role in a Nobel Prize-winning project. Their stories are case studies of triumph over relentless gender discrimination. B&W photographs throughout. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
