Description - Manifesting Power by Tracy L. Sweely

Manifesting Power confronts the relationship between gender and power within prehistoric and historic societies. it addresses the extent to which our preconceptions of the nature of power, and of relations between the sexes, are rooted in our own experience of western society, and argues that both conditions and perceptions may have been quite different among peoples of the past. This collection includes nine innovative, diverse chapters which draw on data from a range of periods and areas. By looking at the evidence for gender distinctions both from archaeological sites and from ethnographic observation, the contributors explore what these distinctions can reveal about power relationships more generally. They reveal that the evidence frequently does not point to the existence of hierarchical gender relationships, and explore forms of power which seem to have been exercised by women among the Maya and Aztec, and in prehistoric Denmark and Alaska.
