    A Companion to Gender History surveys the history ofwomen around the world, studies their interaction with men ingendered societies, and looks at the role of gender in shapinghuman behavior over thousands of years. It contains both thematicessays, which demonstrate how gender has intersected with otherhistorical topics, and chronological-geographic essays, whichexplore gender in one area of the world during a specific period.All the essays consider the importance of class, region, ethnicity, race, and religion to the formation of gendered societies.The contributions are written by scholars from across the world, including Canada, Britain, Australia, India, New Zealand, and theUnited States, as well as by scholars for whom English is not theirfirst language. One of the key points to emerge from the volume asa whole is that no generalization about gender has applied to alltimes or all places.
