Women in the Barracks is a case study that combines both legal and cultural history, reviewing the long history of male elitism in the military as it explores how new ideas about gender equality have developed in the United States. An engrossing story of change versus tradition, it is clear and accessible for general readers, yet highly instructive and valuable for students and scholars. As questions continue to evolve concerning the role of state funding for single-sex education, Strum's book squarely addresses competing notions of women's place and capabilities in American society
