Foreword by Margaret Atwood

In her powerful and bold writing style, French synthesizes women's history from our pre-historical roots through the rise of states across the globe to the onset of state-backed religions in this first volume of four.

"One day, no history will be written without the female half of the world. Until then, we have the unique scholarship of Marilyn French's From Eve to Dawn. No home or library or hopeful reader should be without it." —Gloria Steinem, author of My Life on the Road

"It must be said that the enterprise is on a heroic scale, and consistently thought-provoking." The New York Review of Books

"In short, French does an incredible job relating the history of the sex and the varied roles women have played—willingly or unwillingly—around the globe." ForeWord This Week

"Readers can profit greatly from her brisk and passionate prose." Ms. magazine

"High school through college students and general readers will gain in-depth knowledge and insight about the history of women. . . . An invaluable resource." MultiCultural Review

"Written in concise, understated language, this is a significant addition to literature on women's studies and history." Publishers Weekly
