Description
A comprehensive alphabetical reference with some 1,000 entries on history's fighting women: amazons, gladiators, martial nuns, warrior queens, maenads, furies, and avenging goddesses. Essentially for browsing, but better than the sensationalistic subject might suggest. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

display_descriptionA unique, extensive A-to-Z encyclopedia of history's warrior women. This is an astounding collection of female fighters, from heads of state and goddesses to pirates and gladiators. Each entry is drawn from historical, fictional, or mythical narratives of many eras and lands. With over one thousand entries detailing the lives and influence of these heroic female figures in battle, politics, and daily life, Salmonson provides a unique chronicle of female fortitude, focusing not just on physical strength but on the courage to fight against patriarchal structures and redefine women's roles during time periods when doing so was nearly impossible. The use of historical information and fictional traditions from Japan, Europe, Asia, and Africa gives this work a cross-cultural perspective that contextualizes the image of these unconventional depictions of might, valor, and greatness.
