The Cultural Histories are multi-volume sets that survey the social and cultural construction of specific subjects across six historical periods, broadly: Antiquity, The Medieval Age, The Renaissance, The Age of Enlightenment, The Age of Empire, The Modern Age
The subjects covered so far in this rapidly growing series include Animals, the Human Body, Food, Gardens, Women, the Senses, Dress and Fashion, the Theatre, Work, Law, Money, and Hair.
Each volume discusses the same themes in its chapters so that readers may gain an understanding of a period by reading an entire volume, or follow a theme through history by reading the relevant chapter in each volume.
Each six-volume set is illustrated.
