With daring originality, The Gendered Atom explores the uncharted depths of the scientific soul. There, beneath the scientist's rational, purportedly objective surface, Theodore Roszak finds a maelstrom of repressed sexual prejudices and gender stereotypes. Beyond analyzing where we have gone wrong, The Gendered Atom looks forward to a gender-free science that respects our community with nature and promises a healthier, more fulfilling form of knowledge.

Ted Roszak is Professor of History at California State University, Hayward.

A Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, he has twice been nominated for the National Book Award and twice earned Goldman Environmental Foundation Grants. He lives in Berkeley, California.
