First published in 1947, the second edition of 'The City of Women' was published in 1994 with a new Introduction by anthropologist Sally Cole. That second edition is now available again after being out of print for several years. The book works on many levels: it is a study of 'candomble,' the Afro-Brazilian religion of Bahia, of the role of women in 'candomble,' and of race relations in Brazil. It has much to offer anyone interested in Brazilian history, comparative race and gender relations, the history of anthropology, and the relationships between researcher and subject in anthropology and oral history.
