Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a valuable work, not only because of its conclusions, but because of its tackling of the thorny problem of 'historicizing patriarchy.' Highly recommended."--Choice


"This lean, powerfully argued book merits attention both for its central theme and for its many insights into the development of brewing and the lives of those involved in the trade."--American Historical Review

I've been researching beer & brewing and this book was a great look at the time when the business changed from a largely female run, household-based, business, to a guild-organized, male-dominated business. I had no idea how the Black Death contributed to this change. A fascinating book!

This book answered all the questions I asked of it. As part of my on-going research into the lives of women in England in this period it was excellent.

Ms. Bennett had a fascinating subject and managed to make it hard work to get through - and a quarter of the book is devoted to footnotes, bibliography, etc., etc.! I'm sleepy just thinking about this book that I had high hopes for.
