Overview


Gender is now an integral part of many history courses, and is used not just in specialized classes but often in mainstream teaching. The editors of this new reader have taught courses in this subject; they know what does and does not work in an undergraduate seminar of this sort. This anthology, which begins with an introduction to vital issues of theory and method, makes accessible some of the most influential articles ever published on gender in European history. The papers included herein show why gender has sparked such excitement within the historical profession of late, for they demonstrate that gender not only offers an enhanced understanding of the history of women--and a new way of thinking about the history of men--but has also afforded new ways of understanding such disparate areas of history as science, religion, and politics.
