The most important book since the Origin of the Species.
~ Ashley Montagu, Princeton Anthropologist
Some books are like revelations, they open the spirit to unimaginable possibilities. The Chalice and The Blade is one of those magnificent key books that can transform us.
~ Isabel Allende, author of The House of the Spirits
“The Chalice and the Blade may be the most significant work published in all our lifetimes. Read The Chalice and the Blade…It may make the future possible.”
~ L.A. Weekly
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.
This international bestseller — now in 27 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.
