About the Author

Margaret L. King and Albert Rabil Jr.""edit the Other Voice in Early Modern Europe series for the University of Chicago Press."


Rabil (humanities, SUNY-Old Westbury) has edited the first volume of a new series that will publish in translation texts of 16th- and 17th-century European humanists who supported the idea of the equality of men and women. This volume contains an introduction to the series and an introduction to Agrippa by Rabil as well as the text of the Declamation, the first text to use scriptural sources to advance the notion of women's equality and in some cases superiority. The essay on Agrippa is very brief for general readers but discusses other interpretations of the work and includes a good bibliography. This well-written, scholarly effort will be welcomed by collections dealing with women's studies, early modern Europe, and philosophy, and can be enjoyed by informed lay readers as well.‘Sharon Firestone, Ross-Blakley Law Lib., Arizona State Univ., Tempe
