"The vast new evidence of our global connectedness has revived the imperative to understand the world better and especially to bring into focus the worldwide history of women. These volumes are devoted to surveying the most recent findings on women and gender in hopes of bringing teachers at all levels a practical introduction to the new data, historical issues, and historiographical debates from all regions of the world."--Bonnie G. Smith, from the Introduction to Volume 1
