In an attempt to integrate and unify this volume for the reader we offer Table 1.1 as a précis of these contributions, and as a method for placing these chapters into an overarching perspective. However, the synopses contained in this table are no more than an overview designed to assist the reader in digesting what is sometimes an enigmatic volume. The reader should keep in mind that the summary paragraphs are the work of the editors, and that to reach a full and complete understanding of each author's outlook, the individual chapters should be examined and considered at length. It is our hope that this volume will move both scholar and student toward an understanding of the relationships of women and men as we reach the end of this century and stand poised at the precipice of the future.
