MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a fine account of the condition of women in ancient China from the emergence of an agricultural way of life to the end of the Bronze Age. Bret Hinsch has assimilated a remarkable amount of information from both archaeological literature and paleographic analyses, incorporating it into a concise and coherent social history of early China. -- Li Feng, Columbia University
With this richly documented volume, Bret Hinsch extends his noted work on women in traditional China all the way back to the Stone Age. His even-handed inquiry and treatment of sources will appeal to readers in many fields and make the book especially suitable for the classroom. -- Paul R. Goldin, University of Pennsylvania
Hinsch fills a huge gap by examining women's lives in the formative stage of Chinese civilization. His survey is comprehensive, deft, and accessible to undergraduates. Its erudition also makes it an excellent reference work for scholars and graduate students interested in early Chinese women's history. -- Yiqun Zhou, Stanford University
