The Oxford encyclopedia of woman in world history. Vol. 1 - 4, Editor Bonnie G. Smith. Oxford University Press, 2008ISBN 9780195148909

"[Its] global perspective, bolstered by the fact that the 900 or so contributors represent 'some fifty countries around the world', is one of the set's most important contributions....By merging women's and world history, the impeccably produced Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History earns a place on the reference shelves of academic and large public libraries.", Mary Ellen Quinn, Booklist

"Smith does an admirable job of summarizing and synthesizing a vast academic literature in clear, jargon-free language that will engage scholars and general readers alike....Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.", CHOICE
