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.
