  • 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...

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 44.99

    Examining men and women's differing realities within marriage, this text focuses on marriage as a system of rules, customs, and expectations. It shows that marriage changes men on basic dimensions because it reinforces certain behaviours as part of adult masculinity. more...

  • Discovering Eveby Carol Meyers

    Oxford University Press 1991; US$ 26.00

  • 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...

  • Revising Herselfby Ruthellen Josselson

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 22.99

    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...

  • Joyous Greetingsby Bonnie S. Anderson

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 22.99

    Over one hundred and fifty years ago, champions of women's rights in the United States, Britain, France, and Germany formed the world's earliest international feminist movement.

  • Just Marriageby Mary Lyndon Shanley; Joshua Cohen; Deborah Chasman

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 22.99

    As the national debate intensifies over what marriage is and who may marry, Mary Lyndon Shanley argues that although the state should continue to play a role in regulating personal relations, the law must be fundamentally reformed if marriage is to become a more just institution. more...
