  • Discovering Realityby Sandra Harding; Merrill B.P. Hintikka

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 90.66

    Are Western epistemology, metaphysics, methodology and the philosophy of science grounded only in men's distinctive understandings of themselves, others, and nature? Does this less than human understanding distort our models of reason and of scientific inquiry? In different ways, the papers in this collection explore the evidence for these... more...

  • Woman's Relationship with Herselfby Helen O'Grady

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 43.95

    Woman's Relationship with Herself explores the relationship women have with themselves and demonstrates how this relationship is often dominated by debilitating practices of self-surveillance.

    University of California Press 1996; US$ 26.95

    In an inventive and controversial collection of essays, sociologist Susan Krieger considers the many forms of wealth, both material and emotional, that women pass on to each other. This domestic heritage—the "family silver"—is the keystone for a discussion of mother-daughter relationships, intimate relationships between lesbians, ties between students... more...

  • Marriage in Men's Livesby Steven L. Nock

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 52.99

    There are two marriages in every marital union, his and hers. Men and women live in worlds that are organized around gender, and their marriages reflect differing realities. As life companions, they respond to each other; but they also respond to the cultural definitions of what it means to be a husband and a wife. What has fascinated social and behavioral... more...

  • Revising Herselfby Ruthellen Josselson

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 39.99

    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. Selecting at random thirty young women in their last year of college, Josselson undertook a ground-breaking study that would follow these... more...

  • Sex and Social Justiceby Martha C. Nussbaum

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 30.99

    Growing out of Nussbaum's years of work with an international development agency connected with the United Nations, and informed by her study of Aristotle and the Stoics and the modern liberal thinkers Kant and Mill, this collection charts a feminism that is deeply concerned with the urgent needs of women who live in hunger and illiteracy, or under... more...

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 139.99

  • God Forbidby Kathleen M. Sands

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 114.99

    Since the 1980s, religion has been most visible in American public life when issues of sexuality and reproduction are at stake. Paradoxically, however, the voices that speak most loudly in the name of religion are often unschooled in religious history, world religions, theology, or ethics. As a result, religion in America is misrepresented as anxiously... more...
