The Chalice and the Blade
Our History, Our Future
By Riane Eisler
Narrated by Riane Eisler / 3 hours 1 minute
Riane Eisler reads this new, accessible adaptation of her ground-breaking classic The Chalice and the Blade, in which she combined original theory with noted scholarship to tell a new story of our cultural origins. Drawing evidence from literature, art, sociology, archeology, politics, and economics, she eloquently reconstructs a prehistoric culture based on partnership rather than domination. She then traces the roots of the global shift to patriarchy, showing that was and the "war of the sexes" are neither divinely nor biologically ordained. Finally, and most significantly, she provides new scripts for living, proving that a better future is possible, and is in fact rooted in the drama of our past.
