View Author Bio
Eisler, Riane : Center for Partnership Studies
Riane Eisler is an internationally acclaimed scholar, futurist, and activist, and is codirector of the Center for Partnership Studies in Pacific Grove, California. She is the author of "Sacred Pleasure" and "The Partnership Way."
"The most important book since Darwin's Origin of Species."
"Some books are like revelations, they open the spirit to unimaginable possibilities. The Chalice and the Blade is one of those magnificent key books that can transform us and . . . initiate fundamental changes in the world. With the most passionate eloquence, Riane Eisler proves that the dream of peace is not an impossible utopia."
--Isabel Allende, author of The House of the Spirits
"The Chalice and the Blade may be the most significant work published in all our lifetimes."
"The greatest murder mystery and cover-up of all time."
-- New Age Journal
"Everyone . . . should have the opportunity to read it."
--The Chicago Tribune
"Eisler's highly readable synthesis . . . is an important contribution to social history."
"A gem . . . A rare combination of poetic expression and sober substance."
--Jessie Bernard, author of The Future of Marriage and The Female World
"Validates a belief in humanity's capacity for benevolence and cooperation in the face of so much destruction."
--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"As important, perhaps more important, than the unearthing of Troy or the deciphering of cuneiform."
--Bruce Wilshire, professor of philosophy, Rutgers University
