"The Chalice and the Blade may be the most significant work published in all our lifetimes."
- L.A. Weekly
Renowned social scientist and cultural historian Riane Eisler is becoming increasingly recognized as one of the most original thinkers of our time. She is President of the Center for Partnership Studies, and is best known for her international bestseller The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future. Eisler's latest book, Tomorrow's Children, applies her partnership model to modern education.
Hidden deep in several modern religions are references to a more peaceful time - a time when men did not rule the world. Ancient artifacts suggest that these societies honored mothers, and that the almighty beings were usually goddesses, not gods. Riane Eisler's landmark book The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future uses these prehistorical findings as a basis for re-evaluating men's and women's roles in modern society, and arguing that a balanced partnership may lead the way to societal harmony.
Riane Eisler keynotes conferences worldwide, and is a consultant to business and government on applications of the partnership model she introduces in her work. She has taught at the University of California and Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles, is a founding member of the General Evolution Research Group, a fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science and the World Business Academy, and has worked as a cultural historian and evolutionary theorist over the last twenty years.
