Book Description Melbourne University Press, Australia, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The popular version of the history of Australian science would leave anyone with the impression that there were virtually no women in it. I soon found out that this was wrong.

In this engaging and exhaustively researched book, Claire Hooker describes the courageous cast of characters who have contributed to diverse fields from palaeontology to medicine. Providing fascinating insights into the ways in which women have been able to create careers in a predominantly male domain, Hooker brings to life the stories of women scientists experiences, from colonial times to today, when many are leaders in their fields. Inspiring, insightful, and full of ripping yarns , Irresistible Forces is a map of women s contributions to science in the past and a chart of where it might go in the future.
