Synopsis

Synopsis

Men dominate history because men write history. There have been many heroes, but no heroines. This is the book that overturns that "phallusy of history," giving voice to the true history of the world — which, always and forever, must include the contributions of millions of unsung women. Here is the history you never learned — but should have!

Without politics or polemics, this brilliant and witty book overturns centuries of preconceptions to restore women to their rightful place at the center of culture, revolution, empire, war, and peace. Spiced with tales of individual women who have shaped civilization, celebrating the work and lives of women around the world, distinguished by a wealth of research, Who Cooked the Last Supper? redefines our concept of historical reality.

Praise

Praise

"One of the best [books on women's history]. . . detailed, witty, balanced, and inexorable."
— A.S. Byatt

"Since Miles looks back in anger it is fortunate she also possesses a sense of humor....Her book has been written to alleviate a genuine injustice, the ignoring of women's roles in history."
— Antonia Fraser
