The Women in History series takes a unique approach to the contributions and of women during pivotal events and eras in history. Each volume is organized around the distinct roles women filled, as women spies and camp followers in wartime, as women in religious orders, as political activists and tradeswomen. Readers gain a clear sense of the place and influence of women in the society of their day, and of the many ways women conformed to or broke from their expected roles. Examples of women both famous and unsung, along with a variety of primary source quotations and photographs, enliven the narrative.
