This volume provides a concise overview of the construction of gender in world cultures from the Paleolithic era to modern times. It includes examples drawn from the most recent scholarship relating to a diverse range of cultures, from Ancient Mesopotamia to post-Soviet Russia, and from the Igbo of Nigeria, to the Iroquois of northeastern North America. This volume reflects new developments in the field with added coverage of primates, slavery, colonialism, masculinity, and transgender issues. It also features significant discussion of the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods, an important trend in the study of world history. [from publisher]
