‘Gender’ is a useful category when it is used to see history from two different points of view.  A time of war, for example, may have been bloody and rough from the male perspective, but for women, though it may have been rough, it would have been difficult and sad.  A man, during that point in history, would have seen war, watched friends die, and would be  fighting battle after battle.  A woman, on the other hand, would have been at home, taking care of the children, trying to get by on what little they had to live on, and would be worrying about their husband, boyfriend, or father every single day.  With the two different ‘gender’ views available, one can imagine themselves as someone from that era just by taking it all in.  They no longer have to see themselves as an onlooker.

The first section of the paper is explaining what the world was like at the time the books were written.  It explains what could have influenced the way the author wrote and their opinions on certain things.  The next section tells the reader how the information was gathered and used in the piece.  In other words, it is about the research done to put the piece together.

Following the research, the piece gives the information of different authors and how they compare to one another.  He shows the way the different people saw things.  The author of the paper does not go by dates of publications, but by the ideas.

The author of the paper then goes into the different time periods of the authors he is comparing.  By doing this, he shows how the research and views of the historians has changed over the years because of new evidence.  He later describes the information that was found so that the reader can understand the differences.

The writer finally compares the information by when it was gathered.  The author shows how it had changed over the years and why, which changes the format he began with.
