Constantly in print in 17 countries since 1988, except for the United States, this brilliant and absorbing pop-feminist classic celebrates the unsung work and lives of the historically forgotten gender. With a new introduction, vividly accessible writing, and piquantly funny prose, Who Cooked the Last Supper? informs without being didactic and conveys the weight of injustice without a hint of hostility or political agenda.

Rosalind Miles has overturned centuries of preconceptions to restore women to their rightful place at the center of the worldwide story of revolution, civilization, war, and peace.
