Description:

385 pages. Dimensions: 10.2in. x 7.2in. x 1.1in.When did women first become rulers, athletes, soldiers, heroines, and villains They always were, observes historian Judith Salisbury. From Mesopotamian priestesses and poets to Egyptian queens and consorts, there was never a time when women did not participate in all aspects of society. Salisbury tells the stories of 150 women from the ancient world, ranging from the very famous, such as Cleopatra VII, immortalized by Hollywood, to the barely remembered, such as the Roman poet Nossis. Writing for a general audience, Salisbury begins by painting each woman into her historical context, then recounts each womans story, describing the choices she made as she looked for happiness, wealth, power, or well-being for herself and her familystories much like our own. In entries on general themesclothing, cosmetics, work, sexuality, prostitution, gynecologySalisbury analyzes the commonalties in the lives of these women of antiquity from a cross-cultural perspective.

Why did Cleopatra seduce Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, engulfing the Roman Empire in bloody civil war? Why have the Amazons fascinated ancient and modern societies?
