When Women Didn't Count: Review on Gov-Stuff 4 U

Thanks to Lori L. Smith for the kind words at Gov Stuff 4 U. 

In the book, society's (and government's) changing attitudes toward women are chronicled through statistics on marriage, motherhood, heads of households, occupations, health, crime, and military service, among other topics. The focus isn't on the statistics themselves, but on how and why they were collected as they were. It is, indeed, both fascinating and disturbing.

When Women Didn't Count sneaks out

Interesting experience today.  I was hunting some examples for a history project at work and I went looking for a source I used in my book.  I remembered a quote so I searched for it and what was the first thing that came up?  My little baby at GoogleBooks.  I don't have a copy yet but Google does.

To be clear: My copy isn't late.  Google got theirs early.  I suppose that's a good thing.
