Review quote

Praise for the previous edition: "It supplements our male-oriented Western civilization text very well. [The] articles are terrific!" -- Marcelline Hutton, Hamilton College"This book adds what many others lack: background essays which are highly readable and intelligent. The articles are well written and bring the latest research into the grasp of undergraduates. Some of the best social history to be found -- the book is carefully and intelligently presented, and above all, geared to interest students." -- Daryl M. Hafter, Eastern Michigan University"A good scholarly blending of themes of women's history into the themes of Western civilization." -- Donald P. King, Whitman Collegeshow more
