Title: A History of Women in the West. Volume Iv. Emerging Feminism from Revolution to World War. (General Editors: Georges Duby and Michelle Perrot. )
Description: Belknap / Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1993.. 640 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Volume IV only. ISBN 0674403738 B&w illustrations. "With its Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen, the French Revolution opened a whole new stage in the history of women, despite t heir conspicous absence from the playbill. The coming century would see women put in their place as never before, their subordination to men codified in all manner of new laws and rules; and yet the period would also witness the birth of fem i n i s m , the unprecedented emergence of women as a collective force in the political arena. The fourth volume in this world-acclaimed series covers the distance between these two poles. It gives us a vibrant picture of a bourgeouis century, dy na mi c an d ex p ansive, in which woman's role in the home was stressed more and more, even as the economic pressures and opportunities of the industrial revolution drew her out of the house; in which woman's growing role in the family as the cente r o f a ll mo ra ls an d virtues pressed her into public service fighting social ills.."
