Summary

This revision ofA World Full of Womenwill appeal to instructors and students in anthropology, or any discipline looking for an engaging, cross-cultural approach to the study of women."Reading this book is like sitting down for an intellectually stimulating, yet thoroughly comfortable, chat with the authors,"according to one reviewer. Written by an anthropologist who has taught undergraduates for more than 30 years and designed the first official women's studies course in Louisiana, this book has been fueled by the explosion of research on women since the 1970s. Co-author, Monica Edelstein, adds a wealth of ethnographic experience, research, and activism with women of North Africa, the Middle East, and the United States, particularly immigrants, refugees, and healers. Another reviewer describes this text as "one of the few books that analyzes cultures through a gender lenshellip;the book tackles and successfully dismisses many cultural-sexist illusions. . ."
