Wiesner-Hanks, Merry E.
Over the past 20 years, the study of history has been revolutionised by considerations of gender, and yet most books on the subject focus on only one period or region. This concise overview redresses the balance, exploring the construction of gender in many cultures around the world at different times. The material is presented thematically, encouraging readers to appreciate the connections between gender and other structures such as the family, the economy, law, religion, sexuality and the state. The author investigates how what it meant to be a man or woman was shaped by these institutions, and how they in turn were influenced by gender. Within each chapter, information is arranged chronologically in order to highlight the ways in which gender structures have varied over time.Wiesner-Hanks, Merry E. is the author of 'Gender in History', published 2001 under ISBN 9780631210351 and ISBN 0631210350.
