Críticas:

"This is an outstanding book. Exhaustively researched, encyclopedic in scope, and elegantly written, Shattered, Cracked, or Firmly Intact? provides insights into the comparative study of gender and leadership in a way that is certain to catapult Farida Jalalzai into the forefront of gender studies and leadership studies."--Michael A. Genovese, Loyola Chair of Leadership and Professor of Political Science, Loyola Marymount University "Shattered, Cracked or Firmly Intact? will further Farida Jalalzai's reputation as a leading scholar of women in executive office. This impressive book draws on a wealth of comparative data and provides unique insights into the backgrounds and pathways into power of women leaders, furthering our understanding of why women have broken the highest glass ceiling in some countries but not others. For anyone interested in gender politics, leadership, and pathways into power, this book is essential reading and is likely to remain the definitive work on this area for years to come."--Rainbow Murray, Reader in Politics, Queen Mary, University of London "Methodologically innovative, and drawing on an impressive array of data, Shattered, Cracked, or Firmly Intact? not only addresses the cases of women who have acceded to office, but also compares them to their male predecessors and women who have run for but not won these positions. Timely and insightful, the book significantly advances research on gender and politics, executive roles, and leadership studies, and will thus be a standard reference for years to come."--Mona Lena Krook, Associate Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University

Reseña del editor:

In 1960, Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka made history when she was appointed the world's first woman prime minister. In the half-century following her achievement, fewer than eighty women worldwide have attained the office of prime minister or president. In 2010, women held just seventeen of the world's 252 executive posts - slightly less than seven percent. What prevents women from attaining executive office? And why, despite the progress made by women in other political arenas, have these positions remained stubbornly male?

In Shattered, Cracked, or Firmly Intact?, Farida Jalalzai explores the patterns of women executive's paths, powers, and potential impacts. Jalalzai explains the mechanisms that push politically active women into relatively weak posts and why women who successfully attain executive office almost always hail from political families within unstable systems. Combining a broad understanding of global dynamics of executive power with detailed studies of individual women leaders, Shattered, Cracked, or Firmly Intact? analyzes how institutionally embedded gender expectations limit women's representational impact.

Fifty years have passed since Ms. Bandaranaike's appointment. In Shattered, Cracked, or Firmly Intact?, Jalalzai provides a comprehensive and urgently needed analysis of the factors that prevent women from achieving the world's highest political offices.
