The collection consists of fourteen papers roughly grouped into six thematic categories. While the authors include a freelance writer (formerly an English teacher), an urban superintendent, and a member of the U.S. Department of Education, most are academics and professional researchers. Within this academic framework, the papers address a wide range of topics--from the expected (but not, therefore, less valuable), such as gender inequity in the classroom, sexual harassment, and multicultural education, to the unexpected, such as the impact of technology and the dinner conversations of four teenagers about growing up female in the 1990s. The methodologies and formats also vary, including history, ethnography, literature reviews, and policy perspectives. A few of the papers are marred by too much academic jargon. (Can we find ways to communicate, at least temporarily, without overusing words like "discourse," "social construction," and "knowledges," inevitably "embedded" in "multiple contexts?")
