Encyclopedia Of Women In The Ancient World is a comprehensive, alphabetically arranged, historical survey of the most significant and influential women in recorded human history. From politically powerful women such as Nefertiti, Cleopatra, Boudicca, Zenobia, and Julia Domna, to the reputedly scandalous women such as Jezebel, Bathsheba, Messalina, and Agrippina the Younger; each entre includes a fascinating and informative biography. The role and condition of women is examined to include daily life, motherhood, childbirth, sexuality, religion, work, restrictive or emancipative law, and clothing. Women from myth, legend, and religion are including ranging from Aphrodite, Eve and Gaea, to Helen of Troy, Isis, and the Vestal Virgins of Rome. Historian Joyce Salisbury (Frankenthal Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay) provides a truly "reader friendly" text that is enhanced with maps and a comprehensive index. Encyclopedia Of Women In The Ancient World is very highly recommended as a core addition to any academic World History or Women's Studies reference collection.
