From the Back Cover:

What is gender and who has it? History, theory and gender are inextricably linked, but how exactly do they fit together? How do
historians use theories about gender to write history?

In this jargon-free introduction, Susan Kingsley Kent presents a student-friendly guide to the origins, conceptual framework, subjectmatter and methods of gender history. Assuming no prior knowledge, Gender and History:

? sets out clear definitions of theory, history and gender
? explains that gender is not solely applicable to women, but to men as well
? tackles the hotly debated topic of power and gender relations
? explores gender history from a variety of angles, including anthropology, psychology and philosophy
? spans a broad chronological period, from the times of Aristotle to the present day
? includes a helpful glossary that explains key terms and concepts at a glance.

Lively and approachable, this is an essential text for anyone who wishes to learn how to use theories of gender in their historical
studies.
