By emphasizing gender issues that have been previously suppressed, the author shows how Timberlake Wertenbaker constructs a new historical narrative of Western imagination. This book focuses on how gender is constructed socially and culturally in history through analyzing Wertenbaker's plays. Not only do we understand history from gender, but we also understand that the inclusion of gender in history indeed changes our perception of history. It is definitely not enough to simply emphasize women as victims in history, so the recognition of gender differences and the relations between gender and history help to lead us to rethink and reconstruct history.
