Are All Warriors Male? is a lively inquiry into questions of gender on the ancient Eurasian steppes.

The book's contributors are archaeologists who work in eastern Europe, Central Asia, and eastern Asia, and this volume is the result of their field research in this vast.

As little has been written about the evidence of gender roles in ancient-or modern-pastoralist societies, this book helps to fill an empty niche in our understanding of how sexual roles and identities have shaped and been shaped by such social and cultural circumstances.

Are All Warriors Male? is a groundbreaking work that challenges current conceptions about the development of human societies in this great cauldron of humanity.
