A History of Their Own: Women in Europe from Prehistory to the Present, Vol. 2 by Bonnie S. Anderson, Judith P. Zinsser

This classic two-volume history is an exciting and revolutionary look at womens history from prehistoric times to the present. Its unique organization focuses on the developments, achievements, and changes in womens roles in society. Rather than examining womens history as an inevitableprogression of events along a strict timeline, this text is organized within a loose chronology, with chapters focusing on womens place and function in society. This revised edition provides a new introduction, an updated epilogue on womens lives in Europe since 1988, and a completely revisedbibliography that includes recent scholarship. A History of Their Own restores women to the historical record, brings their history into focus, and provides models of female action and heroism. Lively and engaging, this new edition takes readers on a fascinating journey through womens history andthe changing roles they have played. In addition it is an ideal text for general courses in womens studies and womens history and more specialized courses focusing on women in European history. Volume Two covers the fifteenth century to the present. Topics include the roles of female monarchs and women of the court; the application of the new tools of the Scientific Revolution to prove traditional views of women; the salons and parlors of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries andwealthy womens contributions to the arts and social services; the impact of city-living and the Industrial Revolution on womens roles and family life; and the emergence, evolution, and impact of the modern feminist movement.
