Ben R. McReeBennett's study is bold in its sweep, thoughtful in its analysis, and provocative in its argument. Its conclusions offer an important challenge to prevailing views of women's work, one that will reshape discussion of the subject for years to come. The questions that it leaves open and to which scholars will now have to address themselves concern the relationship between brewing and other sorts of work in which women were engaged. Bennett has initiated an important discussion that should produce a deeper, more nuanced understanding of women's work in the Middle Ages.
