Summary
"Gender and Power in Britain, 1640-1990 is an original and exciting history of Britain from the early modern period to the present, focusing on the interaction of gender and power in political, social, cultural, and economic life. Using a chronological framework, the book examines: a- the roles, responsibilities, and identities of men and women; b- how power relationships were established within these various gender systems; c- how women and men reacted to the institutions, laws, customs, beliefs, and practices that constituted their various worlds; d- class, radical, and ethnic considerations; d- the role of the empire in the development of British institutions and identities; e- the Civil War; f- industrialization; g- Victorian morality; h- twentieth-century suffrage; i- the world wars; j- second-wave feminism." -- Back cover
