Who Cooked the Last Supper?: The Women's History of the World

Rosalind Miles, Author Three Rivers Press (CA) $14.95 (352p) ISBN 978-0-609-80695-1
A Woman's Place There may have been only men sitting at the table, but Who Cooked the Last Supper? asks writer Rosalind Miles (I, Elizabeth; Guenevere, Queen of the Summer Country). Bent on setting the record straight, Miles offers a keen and passionate look at women's contributions to civilizations from hunter-gatherer societies to the present, shining a spotlight into neglected corners as well as on familiar figures: who knew, for example, that Florence Nightingale defied a military commander and, wielding a hammer, broke into a locked storeroom after he refused to give her medical supplies? Readers will delight in this rebel-rousing read, previously published in 1990 by HarperPerennial as The Women's History of the World. ( Apr. 10)
