Leggendo questo libro, tutto ciò a cui riuscivo a pensare era: meno male che sono nata nell'Italia di fine Novecento. Se fossi nata nei secoli presi in considerazione del libro (che analizza la storia dal punto di vista della condizione della donna tra il 1500 e il 1750), sarei stata considerata un essere inferiore che doveva essere naturalmente sottomessa ad un uomo.

Grazie al credito di cui godeva quel simpaticone di Aristotele, si era giunti a una teorizzazione dell'inferiorità psicofisica della donna. Se poi ci aggiungiamo anche il frutto proibito ed Eva... otteniamo una mela più avvelenata di quella che la Strega diede a Biancaneve.

Ma pensate se qualcuno di questi signori tornasse a farsi un giretto dalle nostre parti... Certo, non è che essere donna, anche oggi, sia rose e fiori – e non sto qui a elencarne i motivi più o meno gravi.

First, note that this textbook is published in several different versions. The publisher states: Volume 1 includes chapters 1-16. Volume 2 includes chapters 16-33. The Combined Volume includes all chapters. If you want the complete world history, you need either both volumes 1 and 2 or the Combined Volume.

I haven't read the entire textbook, but it appears suitable for my needs. It has been almost a decade since I earned a 5 on the AP World History exam, and I haven't needed to study history since that time. (My graduate and undergraduate degrees were not in history, and I didn't need any electives). I wanted a book to refresh my knowledge of world history. I considered a variety of textbooks, and selected A History of World Societies. The college board lists this text among its recommended books for AP World History courses, meaning that it is a college level textbook which aligns with the goals of the AP course. The text itself is written in a verbose prose and, unlike many textbooks, does not limit itself to simplistic vocabulary. There are numerous images and charts which illustrate historical concepts, and each chapter contains a section dedicated to primary sources.… (mer)

The first chapter on the development of humans was the best perhaps because it was the most familiar. Good worldwide comparison of cultural development. The author made extraordinary efforts to define the roles of women and lower classes in culture.
