“The most important book since Darwin’s Origin of Species .” — Ashley Montagu
This month, The Center for Partnership Studies celebrates the 30th anniversary edition of The Chalice and the Blade – Our History, Our Future with a new Epilogue by Riane Eisler. Tell us how this groundbreaking book has changed your life! Share your comments here or email Ann: firstname.lastname@example.org.
HarperCollins is making the ebook available for $1.99 for a limited time from September 25 – October 9. Stay tuned for updates and purchasing information.
The international bestseller The Chalice and the Blade, now in 26 foreign editions, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu, and most European languages — tells a fascinating new story of our past, present, and the possibilities for our future. Weaving together evidence from art, archeology, religion, social science, history, and many other fields of inquiry into new patterns that more accurately fit the best available data, it shows that war and the “war of the sexes” are neither divinely nor biologically ordained. It provides verification that a better future is possible — and is in fact firmly rooted in the haunting drama of what actually happened in our past.
Selected as one of 150 Great Works to Set Your Imagination on Fire — along with Isaiah, Tao Te Ching, Marcus Aurelius, Rumi, Jane Austen, Gandhi, Proust, and Toni Morrison — by Utne Reader.
