Abstract
 
Description
In Connecting Spheres, Boxer and Quataert, along with an array of eminent contributors, examine the social history of women within western civilization over the past 500 years. Expanded and updated, this new edition addresses both long-standing and more recent issues which have affected women's lives in modern Europe. These topics include the role of women in public versus private spheres; changes in family life in post-communist Eastern Europe; the impact of religion on the lives of women; the growth of the prostitution sector; the rise of feminism and anti-feminism; and the part female sexuality has played impacting women's roles in social and political life. New essays and new, broader general and section introduction by the authors make this text as appropriate and applicable to general survey studies of modern European history as it is for women's history courses. - from Amzon
