Summary
A sociological history of physics, from ancient Greece up to the present, argues that the exclusion of women from the scientific community has meant that modern advances in physics reflect a male perspective. 17,500 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This astute social and cultural history of physics explores how the development of physics has been intertwined with the rising power of institutionalized religion, and how both these predominantly masculine pursuits have influenced women's ability to join the physics community, the science itself, and the picture of reality it portrays.
