From the Publisher"... This book is important as much for its historical breadth, meticulous attention to scholarly detail, and subtle interpretation of texts, as for the power of philosophical imagination fueling the ambitious, pioneering project. It is a groundbreaking work insofar as it has opened up a new way of approaching the history of European political philosophy -- one that places gender politics and the voices of women center stage."
--Eileen O'Neill, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"The authors studiously resist the temptation to impose contemporary political concepts on the work of the women under study, even while they recognize certain similarities between eras in terms of language or the structure of particular arguments...It is difficult to imagine subsequent scholars doing serious work on this topic without this book nearby."
