About this item

Following a positive response to their first edition, Timm and Sanborn present this expanded second edition, which updates methodological innovation and current scholarship with a new chapter on sexuality in the twenty-first century and extended material on alternative sexualities, women’s femininity and history, and the Mediterranean and Scandinavia. They contend that gender history is neither a “women’s history” nor a “men’s history” and that to understand gender in modern Europe one must historicize it rather than looking for one progressive narrative that explains the current state of affairs. They expose the deep historical contingency of European notions of society, sexuality and individual identity, and provide a narrative that gives enough detail for undergraduates to understand how gender is intertwined with political and social change. Six chapters with conclusion are: liberty, equality and fraternity; gendered capitalizing and its discontents; the imperial drive and the colonial world; brothers and sisters at war; the long sexual revolution; sex, gender and politics in twenty-first-century Europe; conclusion. There are works cited, footnotes, and a list of illustrations. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
