Gender Studies

  • Shamelessby Cristiana Franco

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 60.00

    The figure of the dog is a paradox. As in so many cultures, past and present, the dog in ancient Greece was seen as the animal closest to humans, even as it elicited from them the most negative representations. Still a loaded term today, the word bitch not only signified shamelessness and a lack of self-control but was also exclusively figured as... more...

  • The Gender Knotby Allan Johnson

    Temple University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    New Third Edition! The Gender Knot, Allan Johnson's response to the pain and confusion that men and women experience by living with gender inequality, explains what patriarchy is and isn't, how it works, and what gets in the way of understanding and doing something about it. Johnson's simple yet powerful approach avoids the paralyzing trap of... more...

  • Women without Classby Julie Bettie

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    In this ethnographic examination of Mexican-American and white girls coming of age in California?s Central Valley, Julie Bettie turns class theory on its head, asking what cultural gestures are involved in the performance of class, and how class subjectivity is constructed in relationship to color, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. A new introduction... more...

  • Sexuality and Globalizationby Laurent Bibard; Christopher Edwards

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    The book argues that a universally widespread virility currently prevents humans from realizing their sexualities, which are originally the feminine and the masculine. This obstacle may be traced back to Renaissance humanism, whose core intention is to take control over the so-called 'nature." more...

  • Women and the City, Women in the Cityby Nazan Maksudyan

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 85.00

    An attempt to reveal, recover and reconsider the roles, positions, and actions of Ottoman women, this volume reconsiders the negotiations, alliances, and agency of women in asserting themselves in the public domain in late- and post-Ottoman cities. Drawing on diverse theoretical backgrounds and a variety of source materials, from court records to... more...

  • Is My Husband Gay, Straight, or Bi?by Joe Kort; Alexander P. Morgan

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2014; US$ 35.99

    Is My Husband Gay, Straight, or Bi? addresses a topic that many people may have experience with, but don?t know where to go to find the answers. At a time when the definition of marriage is changing, and relationships in general may be fraught with uncertainty about a variety of basic issues, a book that addresses the concerns of women who suspect... more...

  • Red, Brown, Yellow, Black, White—Who's More Precious In God's Sight?by Leroy Barber; Velma Maia Thomas

    Faithwords 2014; US$ 11.99

    After more than two decades in urban missions, Leroy Barber discovered a disturbing trend: The virtual absence of people of color in the mission field has created a widening racial disconnect, to the point that Christian ministries can no longer relate to the people they claim to serve. RED, YELLOW, BLACK AND WHITE highlights the historic patterns... more...

  • Motherloadby Ana Villalobos

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    In a time of economic anxiety, fear of terrorism, and marital uncertainty, insecurity has become a big part of life for many American mothers. With bases of security far from guaranteed, mothers are often seeking something they can count on. In this beautifully written and accessible book, Ana Villalobos shows how mothers frequently rely on the one... more...

  • Sensational Fleshby Amber Jamilla Musser

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    In everyday language, masochism is usually understood as the desire to abdicate control in exchange for sensation—pleasure, pain, or a combination thereof. Yet at its core, masochism is a site where power, bodies, and society come together. Sensational Flesh uses masochism as a lens to examine how power structures race, gender, and embodiment... more...

  • Reading Bridal Magazines from a Critical Discursive Perspectiveby Ewa Glapka

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    Offering a critique of contemporary wedding discourse, this book marries together analyses of media texts and their reception to propose a new approach to media discourse. The analysis richly illustrates how women are invited to embrace not only the stereotypical idea of bridal femininity but also a consumptive way of experiencing it. more...
