On June 26, 1996, in a ruling that no one at the Virginia Military Institute wanted to hear, the Supreme Court declared that women could no longer be refused admission. A year later, thirty women received their crew cuts and spent their first night inside the barracks where in previous years even the mothers of new students were denied entry.

As a member of VMI's "assimilation committee", Laura Fairchild Brodie is able to take us behind the scenes, telling the story of this remarkable transition at the last all-male military academy in the voices of the participants themselves -- from concerned administrators to angry alumni, and from ambivalent cadets to determined female recruits. And in a new foreword to the Vintage edition, Brodie interviews members of the first co-ed class (now preparing for graduation in May 2001) to find out how they feel now, looking back on their historic experience.
