Carol Meyers's Discovering Eve: Ancient Israelite Women in Context PDF

This groundbreaking examine appears to be like past biblical texts, that have had a strong impact over our perspectives of women's roles and price, in an effort to reconstruct the common daily lives of ladies in historical Israel. Meyers argues that biblical resources by myself don't supply a real photo of historical Israelite girls simply because city elite men wrote the majority of the scriptural texts and the tales of girls within the Bible crisis unprecedented contributors instead of traditional Israelite girls.

Sample text

While the peasants bore the burden, they received little in return, since the small part of state spending that was devoted to ‘modernisation’ was ‘of a decorative rather than self-sustaining variety’, much of it concentrated in the urban areas, especially Sofia, in the form of parks, public buildings, museums, trams and electric lighting to which the peasants had little access. To compound their misery many peasants were the victims of unscrupulous usurers and were forced to pay astronomical rates of interest in some cases (Bell 1977, 8–16).

The overhead costs of the upkeep of the army, the central government and a parasitic aristocratic elite were heavy and tended to weaken the strength of these empires in much the same way as had occurred in the later Roman Empire (Kahn 1979, 30–31). Nearer home, the conditions in medieval Europe were not much more auspicious for economic progress under the fragmented control of individual rulers. Pillage, plunder and exaction were the meat of everyday life. Fortunately Europe escaped the clutches of monolithic dynastic rulers and in time a system of nation states emerged which provided an environment more conducive to modern enterprise and personal endeavour as graft, corruption, thievery and confiscatory taxation were reduced to a minimum, while the legal framework PERIPHERAL EUROPE BEFORE 1914 35 sanctified economic and commercial transactions.

At a more local level, the developing industrial/commercial centres such as Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia, Istanbul, Athens, Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon acted as core magnets for the more backward agricultural hinterlands. In some cases there was even a reversal of the stereotyped roles. The nascent industrial sectors in the Baltic states, Poland and Finland served as suppliers to the more backward imperial regime of Russia (see Berend 2003, 139). The core–periphery/dependency theory can also be somewhat misleading if it is put in a politico/economic context since economic subordination was not synonymous with political status.
