Summary: Warnicke has written an excellent monograph dealing with an inordinately neglected topic: the education of English women during the Tudor and early Stuart eras. ... Her approach, a generational one, is both perceptive and insightful.... She carefully identifies the women and discusses the reasons and nature of their education as well as their accomplishments. Equally masterful is her successful integration of the subject with the major historical--ecclesiastical, political, and social-- currents of the time.
