  • Forbidden Friendshipsby Michael Rocke

    In the 70 years between the Civil War and World War II, the women of Boston changed the city dramatically.

  • Breaking the Abortion Deadlockby Eileen McDonagh

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 49.99

    This text attempts to reframe abortion rights by focusing not on a woman's right to choose abortion, but rather on a woman's right to consent to pregnancy.

  • Creation and Abortionby F. M. Kamm

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 27.99

    Based on a non-consequentialist ethical theory, this book critically examines the prevalent view that if a fetus has the moral standing of a person, it has a right to life and abortion is impermissible. Most discussion of abortion has assumed that this view is correct, and so has focused on the question of the personhood of the fetus. Kamm begins... more...

  • Electronic Hearthby Cecelia Tichi

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 25.95

    We all talk about the "tube" or "box," as if television were simply another appliance like the refrigerator or toaster oven. But Cecilia Tichi argues that TV is actually an environment--a pervasive screen-world that saturates almost every aspect of modern life. In Electronic Hearth, she looks at how that environment evolved, and how it, in turn,... more...

    In 1972, Ruthellen Josselson was a young psychologist fascinated by the riddle of how a woman creates an identity and chooses one path over another in life--particularly in the face of the nascent feminist movement, which challenged as never before the traditional role models of earlier generations. Selecting at random thirty young women in their last... more...

  • The Image of Manby George L. Mosse

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 38.00

    What does it mean to be a man?
