Cultural anthropologist David E. Jones takes the reader back through history and around the world to uncover a clear pattern of women as warriors. Women Warriors is the most comprehensive account of the female martial heritage available and a comment on the nature of gender, on the power of the warrior image, and on the image's source in history.

Industry Reviews

Meticulously research and exceptionally well-written, WOMEN WARRIORS is both highly informative and unusually entertaining. The book certainly succeeds in demonstrating that the use of women in combat has not been as unusual as popularly believed, nor it is an aberration. . . . -"SEA POWER "A full yet readable historical survey of women at war that convincingly shows females have long been soldiers and military leaders. -"KIRKUS REVIEWS Should appeal to general readers as well as scholars and challenge ethnocentric and gender stereotypes . . . -"AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST
