Overview

This striking new contribution to gender studies demonstrates the essential role of Israelite and Near Eastern law in the historical analysis of gender. The theme of these studies of Babylonian, Hittite, Assyrian, and Israelite law is this: What is the significance of gender in the formation of ancient law and custom? Feminist scholarship is enriched by these studies in family history and the status of women in antiquity.
