Riane Eisler believes that war and the war of the sexes are concepts neither divinely nor biologically ordained. Join the author as she reconstructs a prehistoric culture based on partnership rather than domination and traces the roots of the global shift to patriarchy. Eisler, an acclaimed scholar, futurist, and activist, also presents new scripts for living based on a more socially, economically, ecologically, personally, and spiritually balanced society. This script is in direct opposition to the tension and violence typical of what she calls the dominator model. Her vision is the partnership model, which today is struggling to reemerge. This program is an important contribution to that struggle. Download and start listening now!

    " Loved this book. Helps clarify how we got where we are, and where we can go if we want to. Those who brush this off as feminazi aren't reading well. She reiterates many times that there are gentle men and less-than-gentle women. Nor does she say that the Neolithic matrifocal societies were uptopias with no problems, just that they focused on nurturing rather than destruction. Her ideas about a gylanic society based on linking rather than ranking are excellent and should be pursued. "

    " Outstanding! A must for any person interested in feminist theory. This book is incredibly exciting and paradigm-shifting. "

    " This book really shakes the trees a little bit to seek out another possible human way of life that may have been there all along. Sure, some may seem a little outlandish, but the message that life doesn't have to be about domination and competition is well articulated and thought-provoking. "

    " There were some strong parts, and overall it has a noble purpose, but I don't think it was particularly well constructed or referenced. "
