Gender in World History
by Peter N. Stearns, Routledge, 2000.

This compact text attempts to amalgamate women's history and world history. It sweeps through history examining the kinds of societal contacts that affected gender relations. Numerous case studies from earliest civilizations to twentieth century international movements explore established ideas about women and men and their roles, and points of contact that changed or challenged these roles. Most examples directly relate to topics commonly taught in secondary level classes. Short chapters and interesting narrative make this a highly accessible supplementary reader.
