In a work this short, one does not expect to find the authoritative study on the subject. I would have liked to see a longer work here. Additionally, a survey of important women in society does very little to show more general trends. For example, Joan of Arc's campaign shows very little about women in medieval French society by itself. I couldn't help feeling that Herbert was glossing over more difficult points.
All in all, I would recommend reading this book among many others. I would not recommend it as the only book on the subject, however.

Well researched booklet on an often overlooked topic in history. There is a lot of information packed into a very short book. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Todd Keyser
small book, interesting info. Along with "Lady with a Mead Cup", a nice addition to my Anglo-Saxon library. IMHO she could have added more info and documentation.Published 10 months ago by Jane T. Sibley
All you ever hear about is the male warriors, now something to show that women of that time did more than cook and breed.Published on November 15, 2013 by Gary Hewitt
I blazed through this book in a day. The subject matter was excellent and intriguing. The only handicap that I saw and can give it was that it was way to short. Read morePublished on November 21, 2007 by Ragnar Schuett
This book looked a lot more interesting than it turned out to be. It is thin on information and long on PCness. Read morePublished on January 27, 2007 by Saelind
