    1. Reseña cutre porque estoy de exámenes:Lo cogí para un trabajo sobre la mujer en la Edad Moderna y he aprendido tela de mucho. Habría sacado todo de aquí si hubiera podido, en serio. Pero claro, tener solo una referencia en un trabajo de la uni pues no queda bien. Aun así, este libro es como la BIBLIA. En fin, que lo he sacado de la biblio, pero me lo voy a comprar porque quiero tenerlo en casa para consultarlo cuando me dé la gana y eso.


    2. This was a really intriguing read. Wiesner analyzes the details of various aspects of female life in Early Modern Europe, comparing and contrasting the lives led by Catholic women versus Protestant, lower class versus higher, English versus French or Spanish the list goes on. She also looks at the remnants of medieval culture and belief and how these affected women living in the Early Modern world. Very detailed, and yet written in an easily-comprehensible writing style.


    3. 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 d [...]


    4. A seriously good undergraduate textbook: accessibly written and with a useful number of quotations from primary sources. The suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter are also mines of information. I decided to read this because I'll be teaching a course in early modern Japanese women's writing this spring and I wanted to be able to bring a comparative dimension to the classroom: the book was perfect for that purpose, too!One caveat: the companion website (cambridge/womenandgend [...]


    5. One of the most spectacular books I've ever been assigned for school. Great overview of subjects pertaining to women and gender in . . . early modern Europe! Really though, well worth the read and includes such an extensive bibliography that if I read only books referenced in this one, I'd probably be busy for the rest of my life. I'm going to buy my own copy. Just superb.


    6. E' stata una vera angoscia finire il capitolo sulla Religione - troppe digressioni e particolari inutili per quella che dovrebbe essere una panoramica.A parte questo, il libro e' assolutamente valido e interessantissimo. A tratti pure divertente.


    7. Amazing book, I used it a lot during my Patriarchy, Sex, and Gender in Early Modern Europe course. Wiesner-Hanks is nothing short of astounding with the way she relates the nuances of gender and the feminine experience in this historical period, highly recommended.



    8. A survey of women and gender from about 1500-1800 in European society, including "New World" colonies. Superb breadth, depth, and clarity; a model of its genre.
