Horowitz, author of Culture and the City, focuses on the Seven Sister colleges. She shows that while many women's colleges were envisioned by their founders as protected, ordered, idyllic communities, the institutions eventually aimed to develop women's minds free of sex stereotypes. PW observed that the 130 photos and drawings included here effectively ""recreate campus life and architecture.'' February
