This study reveals the story of two currents crossing and recrossing, sometimes conflicting, sometimes converging. One current is the Navy's attempt to include women gradually without losing its traditional values. The other is that of women challenging the Navy's assumptions, their aspirations rising as their opportunities widen. And as any sailor knows, where currents cross the waters are troubled. Jean Ebbert and Marie-Beth Hall have written a comprehensive and inspiring history that covers Tailhook in depth and shows why it was to be expected. [Sage Publications]
