HIDDEN WOMEN A History of Europe, Celts & Freedom

hidden women Buried treasures show that Europe's ancient Celts valued females in ways that later empires did not. Over the past 2000 years, institutionalized sexism has carried imperialist male domination all the way to the present.

That said, the Celtic family-based culture remains hidden in plain view by using the right lens. This book gives a look into the world of nature-loving ancestors and their descendants.

The Eric Hoffer Award honors the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. Since its inception, the Hoffer has become one of the largest international book awards for small, academic, and independent presses.
