Overview

"In a rousing, incisive tome that spans centuries, Moses Seenarine deftly unpacks the suppressed histories of female-centered cultures that pre-dated traditional patriarchal hierarchies based on the colonial subjugation of women, children and animals. Using Stone Age Goddess culture and iconography as a guidepost, Seenarine argues that patriarchal dominance was an anomaly in prehistory. He explores the ways in which female-centered communities established peaceful, communistic societies anchored by female gathering rather than male hunting. In so doing, he seeks to challenge the prevailing Darwinian narrative that cultures based on male dominance-predicated on meat consumption, territorialism, misogynistic power and asymmetrical control-were ultimately the most successful and "inevitable" systems of human social development. Acknowledging his privileged position as a male scholar and researcher, Seenarine provides a valuable overview for those interested in the crucial connection between the radical politics of ecofeminism and the contemporary battle over climate change, food justice and sustainability." -Sikivu Hutchinson, Author of Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics, and the Values Wars
