From classical times to the twenty-first century, Gender in World History is a fascinating exploration of what happens to established ideas about men and women, and their roles, when different cultural systems come into contact. This book breaks new ground to facilitate a consistent approach to gender in a world history context.

This second edition has been completely updated, and now includes:

  • expanded introductions to each chronological section
  • extensive discussion of the twentieth century bringing it right up-to-date
  • new chapters on international influences in the first half of the twentieth century and globilization in the latter part of the twentieth century
  • engagement with the recent work done on gender history and theory.

With coverage right up to the present day, Gender in World History is essential reading for students of world history.

Peter N. Stearns is Provost and Professor of History at George Mason University. His books include The Other Side of Western Civilization (5th Edition, 1999), Childhood in World History (Routledge, 2005) and Consumerism in World History (2nd edition, Routledge, 2006).

Review:

'Brings together two of the most dynamic areas of contemporary historical research, global and gender history ... it presents examples from a variety of different cultures in ways that will be appealing to many readers.' - - Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee

'A comparative history of immense ambition ... [It] will be profitably consulted by gender historians. It successfully demonstrates that gender is a historical construct that is rebuilt by each generation and varies from culture to culture,' - Journal of Contemporary History
