The Humanistic Tradition July 28, 2011
by
As with many history books, the writer's presuppositions are reflected in their writing. Fiero follows this trend, allowing her feministic presuppositions to interpret history. While this is not so evident in volumes 4 and 5, in volume 6 (a review of modern times), this view is highly stated. This series (including the first 3 volumes) is a wonderful review of history, allowing the reader to see into various cultures throughout history.
