Description

A Cultural History of Women presents an authoritative survey from ancient times to the present. With six volumes covering 2500 years, this is the most authoritative history available of women in Western cultures. 1. A Cultural History of Women in Antiquity 2. A Cultural History of Women in the Middle Ages 3. A Cultural History of Women in the Renaissance 4. A Cultural History of Women in the Age of Enlightenment 5. A Cultural History of Women in the Age of Empire 6. A Cultural History of Women in the Modern Age Each volume discusses the same themes in its chapters: the Life Cycle; Bodies and Sexuality; Religion and Popular Beliefs; Medicine and Disease; Public and Private Worlds; Education and Work; Power; and Artistic Representation. This means readers can either have a broad overview of a period by reading a volume or follow a theme through history by reading the relevant chapter in each volume. Superbly illustrated, the full six volume set combines to present the most authoritative and comprehensive survey available on women through history.
