The revised two-volume edition of this classic in feminist literature makes available to new generations of students and scholars an original, well written and carefully thought-out representation of civilization's development. Elise Boulding offers a comprehensive and fascinating inventory of women's contributions to history over time and presents many invaluable models which can assist in relating history from a much-needed women's perspective.Volume One concentrates on pre history and the earliest civilizing roles of women. Volume Two focuses on the transition centuries and includes additional new material on the 20th century women's movement and the resultant social transformations, as well as an exciting epilogue entitled Creating Futures for the 21st Century.
