Kirkus UK
This is a mixed collection of literary extracts, from the earliest times to the present day, that focus on women and men, work and idleness. By the grouping of people according to their class, race, nation, skills, parentage - and their sex - we see how the idea of work reflects a culture's priorities and beliefs. Looking at the role of work in society, via the writings of about 200 authors throughout the ages, this anthology is divided into sections for easy dipping. This could prove to be the intellectuals' Christmas bestseller, for what could be more stimulating than reading Woolf's early 20th-century feminism alongside Classical male chauvinism, for example?
