Militia men, white supremacists and religious leaders offer their opinions on homosexuality, AIDS, feminism and abortion, and gays, lesbians and feminists discuss how their "alternative" lifestyles conflict with or adapt to the tenor of life in the rural South.

Citizenship in an Enlarging Europe: From Dream to Awakening
UK Palgrave Macmillan
2006 140399840X / 9781403998408 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 14 x 1.9 x 21.6 cm 
"264 Pages. A very good crisp, clean copy. Citizenship in an Enlarging Europeconsiders the impact of economic, political and social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe in the context of EU enlargement. In a lively and engaging narrative, the author uses gender as the lens through which to examine the processes of democratization, marketization and newly emergent nationalism. She shows the centrality of gender to these processes and the ways in which rigid codes of masculinity and feminity limit people's choices. Individual chapters examine mainstream politics versus the promotion of civil society as routes to empowerment and participation. Barbara Einhorn highlights the growing public-private divide in the region, pinpointing the negative influences of the neo-liberal market model and its gendered media representations. Voices of scholars and actors from the region enliven the narrative. With great clarity, the author reveals the relevance of fully active citizenship within a vibrant civil society as a measure of democracy and gender equitable societies." "Book Description: Citizenship in an Enlarging Europe considers the impact of economic, political and social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe in the context of EU enlargement. The author uses the lens of gender to examine the processes of democratization, marketization and nationalism. Her enquiry into the relevance of citizenship to the quest for gender equitable societies investigates mainstream politics versus civil society initiatives as routes to empowerment and participation. She critiques the increasing public-private divide and analyzes the influence of the neo-liberal market model and its gendered media representations. : Review: 'Barbara Einhorn has written an important and timely contribution to our understanding of the newly enlarged Europe. Most crucially, she argues for a recognition of the gendered complexities of the idea of citizenship. The book is essential reading for anyone who values the furtherance of equality between all Europeans.' - Mary Evans, Professor of Women's Studies, University of Kent at Canterbury, UK: 'Einhorn is consistently thorough, thoughtful and accessible. In this vital and timely book, she synthesizes cutting-edge theory and cross-disciplinary research to deliver a compelling argument for gender equitable citizenship in an enlarging Europe. A uniquely valuable resource for students, scholars and practitioners as well.' - V. Spike Peterson, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Arizona, USA: 'Barbara Einhorn has done it again! All of her many fans who have been awaiting eagerly a sequel to her much-heralded Cinderella Goes to Market will be rewarded by reading this new richly detailed, cogently analyzed comparative study of what has happened to women in Eastern Europe in the last decade. This book is a must for all of us trying to make feminist sense of globalized economics and tenuous democratization - and women's own activist responses to both.' - Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor, Clark University, USA : '...the book is extremely well written, well informed and cogently argued. Einhorn incisively reviews and analyses an extraordinary range of literature, supporting arguments with a remarkable breadth of empirical and statistical analysis. Her impressive comparative ability ensures that she 'hops' around Central and Eastern Europe without sacrificing important empirical detail.' - Laura McLeod, International Feminist Journal of Politics : Book Description: This updated edition investigates citizenship and gender in Central and Eastern Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall, including the impact of EU enlargement" Size: 14 x 1.9 x 21.6 cm. 268 pages.

Gay and Lesbian Theologies : Repetitions with Critical Difference, Stuart, Elizabeth

Gay and Lesbian Theologies : Repetitions with Critical Difference
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
2003 0754616584 / 9780754616580 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 1.3 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm 
"Gay and lesbian theology has been one of the most distinctive voices to have emerged in Christian theology in the last 30 years. It has placed lesbian and gay experience at the heart of the theological process. Elizabeth Stuart, one of the most prominent theologians in this field, presents the first critical survey of gay and lesbian theology arguing that its emergence was nothing short of miraculous. Gay and lesbian theologians managed to take a dominant Christian discourse which rendered them sinful, sick and harmful to the common good and transform it into a theology which argued that a person?s sexuality provided the point of contact between God and themselves. Stuart argues that, miraculous though this was, gay and lesbian theology has revealed itself to be 'bankrupt' - incapable of providing universally convincing reasons for the inclusion of lesbian and gay people and their relationships in the Church and unable to deal with the defining experience of lesbian and gay communities in the late twentieth-century - AIDS. Stuart concludes that lesbian and gay people and their opponents in the Church have too easily bought into modern constructions of sexual identity and cut themselves off from a Christian tradition which is far more ?queer? in that it refuses to accept the stability of gender and sexual desire. Stuart argues that the only way out of the current deadlock on the issue of homosexuality in the Churches is for both sides to embrace this ancient queer tradition - a Christian tradition which teaches that in the end gender and sexual identities have no ultimate importance. Contents: Theological trouble; Gay is good; Exodus; Erotic theology; AIDS and the failure of gay and lesbian theology; From here to queer; Queer theology; Christianity is a queer thing; Bibliography; Index."

One cannot help but see here a theological argument which could be very useful to the churches involved in debate over issues related to homosexuality... An excellent bibliography, a full set of useful notes and a very helpful index are proviced.' Gene Huff, More Light Update 'This book is a good critical survey of the development of gay and lesbian theology. It offers solid arguments for a different approach to sexual identity. It is definitely to be recommended.' Catholic Library World 'In this thoughtful book, Stuart traces the development of gay and lesbian theology, highlighting the ways in which it draws on late twentieth-century Christian theology and the growing field of gay and lesbian studies... With its broad historical survey of contemporary theologies and its provocative theological argument, this book should be of interest to a wide range of readers, including college students and seminarians.' Religious Studies Review 'Liz Stuart's latest book is a summary and overview of British and American lesbian, gay and queer theologies produced over the last three decades and an argument about their meaning and significance... it is always readable, engaging and stimulating... Stuart's summaries of the diverse theologies she treats are excellent: clear and concise without being superficial and, at least in her treatment of gay and lesbian theologies, constructively critical.' Journal of Beliefs and Values 'This is an informative book which those on both sides in the current controversy might profitably read and ponder.' Modern Believing 'Stuart's awareness of mainstream work in areas such as feminism and gay and lesbian studies enriches the book and contextualizes its main contents.

224 Pages. This is an important intervention in debates on the family and sexuality, exploring clashes over sexual values and contemporary sexual dilemmas such as AIDS. Book Description: This is an important intervention in debates on the family and sexuality, exploring clashes over sexual values and contemporary sexual dilemmas such as AIDS. : Review: ′His ′nouveau′ morality combines the acceptance of erotic diversity with the valuation of responsibility, love, care and solidarity. It is a moving and inspiring read.′ Tribune : ′[An] important book.′ The Guardian : ′Jeffrey Weeks′ Invented Moralities is a response to the heated debate about sexual morality which has emerged over the past 20 years as the destabilisation of the ′heterosexual tradition′ has become increasingly apparent.′ Living Marxism : ′Lively and wide-ranging, Weeks′ book combines humour with scholarship, personal experience with observation to make a serious contribution to debates about fundamental issues such as love, sex and the importance of relationships. Weeks′ advocacy of humanistic pluralism, as he identifies it, is provocative, thoughtful and very persuasive.′ Morning Star : ′A well-argued message of hope and encouragement ... this book is an important contribution to the discourse of post-modernity as well as sexual (particularly gay and lesbian) identities and moralities. It ought to be widely read and discussed.′ Sociology : From the Back Cover: Sexuality is at the heart of contemporary anxiety about values as current controversies about changes in the family and sexual mores underlines. This book is an important intervention in these debates, offering a challenging analysis of the modern condition. : In Invented Moralities, clashes over sexual values are explored in powerfully argued chapters on contemporary sexual dilemmas including AIDS, the politics of diversity, the rights of everyday life and the challenge of love and death. The book is highly relevant to contemporary controversies over ethics, personal responsibility and the organization of private life. The author takes a different stance from most writing on these themes, exploring the experience of contemporary social movements, dissident sexual minorities, and those attempting to elaborate more fluid and flexible ways of living and loving together. : The book is an important contribution to the elaboration of what Jeffrey Weeks calls a radical humanism, a humanism which values individual freedom and celebrates the rich diversity of human goals whilst affirming the importance of human solidarity. It will be essential reading for students and lay readers interested in the areas of the sociology of sexuality, personal relationships and family life. Size: 15.2 x 1.4 x 22.9 cm. 224 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: A fierce critical intelligence animates every page of Queer Street. Its sentences are dizzying divagations. The postwar generation of queer New York has found a sophisticated bard singing 'the elders' history' (The New York Times). James McCourt's seminal Queer Street has proven unrivaled in its ability to capture the voices of a mad, bygone era. Beginning with the influx of liberated veterans into downtown New York and barreling through four decades of crisis and triumph up to the era of the floodtide of AIDS, McCourt positions his own exhilarating experience against the whirlwind history of the era. The result is a commanding and persuasive interlocking of personal, intellectual, and social history that will be read, dissected, and honored as the masterpiece it is for decades to come. A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2003; a Lambda Award finalist. : Review: "A heroically imaginative account of gay metropolitan culture, an elegy and an apologia for a generation." - New York Times Book Review : About the Author: James McCourt is the author of Mawrdew Czgowchwz, Time Remaining, Delancey's Way, Now Voyagers: The Night Sea Journey and Queer Street.

Service-learning has become a very popular alternative to standard courses in higher education and is gaining significant popularity. This book takes a serious look at the unintended consequences and alternative conceptualizations of this mode of learning and explores what it could offer us in the future. : About the Author: DAN W.

"153 Pages. In this work, Anna Snyder provides a detailed account of the challenges women representatives in non-governmental organizations (NGOs) faced in building bridges across diverse ethnic, racial, national, regional, and ideological backgrounds at the 4th United Nations (UN) Conference on Women. This book traces the process by which women's peace groups set an agenda for global policies in the area of women and armed conflict. This text shows how NGOs use conflict to develop transnational social movements and to build consensus around issues of global concern. Using this conference as a case study, Snyder finds three purposes for social movement conflict: contention arising from policy development; deep-rooted historical conflict; and conflicts over NGO network priorities. Drawing together feminist, conflict resolution, and social movement theories, this comprehensive text analyzes the large scale decision making processes for NGOs and points towards future directions for conflict resolution and consensus building."

Anna Snyder honestly faces the difficult realities of using consensual processes to forge agreements among women in diverse non-governmental organizations with unequal power and whose members differ in culture and historical experiences. Most significantly, with enlightening specificity, she presents effective ways to deal constructively with the inevitable conflicts that arise in these increasingly important efforts.' Louis Kriesberg, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Syracuse University, USA 'Setting the Agenda for Global Peace explores one of the most important problems faced by those organizing for social change: How do groups overcome their many differences in order to mobilize unified movements for social justice? Anna Snyder's rich accounts help illuminate the ways that activists expressed their conflicts in the course of organizing around the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women, and her analysis integrates theory and research on conflict resolution to assess the relationships between conflicts and coalition building. In the process, she presents a detailed and insightful look at some of the social processes that are subsumed under the amorphous label of ""globalization."" This book is essential reading for students and scholars of all social movements and conflicts (not just transnational ones) and for practitioners seeking to build coalitions across class, culture, race, and other differences.' Professor Jackie Smith, State University New York, Stony Brook, USA 'This lively and creative ethnography follows activists from three regions as they participate in the development of a global women's peace movement. The analysis highlights moments when individual agency and the strategic efforts of activists are effective, but also illuminates how structural inequalities can undermine cooperative intentions. Snyder offers an insightful view of conflict as useful, when handled constructively, and perhaps even necessary if we are to come together in genuine dialogue.' Professor Marjorie L. DeVault, Syracuse University, USA 'This unusual book explores a double challenge. For NGOs, of learning how to collaborate and network across conflicting agendas and diverse histories and cultural practices at international conferences, and for activists, of developing a transnational activist identity. Choosing three different women's peace organizations representing very different political and cultural orientations and observing their interaction at the regional and global prepcoms up to and finally including the 1995 UN Women's Conference in Beijing was a brilliant strategy. The stories that unfold throughout the book are compelling. The reader is richly rewarded with a number of thought-provoking insights into different types of conflict resolution scenarios, and the critical importance of that basic form of human communication, dialogue.'

264 Pages. Side foredge is marked. Both top corners of the book are bumped. Back of the book is also marked. Bounding is coming away from the spine. Text is unaffected. Though sexual attitudes and behaviour have changed radically in Britain since the mid-nineteenth century Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain since 1880 shows how slow, and how halting these processes of change have been. Lesley Hall reveals how issues which were arousing concern in the 1880s and 1890s continue to manifest in different forms as we enter the new millennium. Topics covered include homosexuality, the changing legal and social position of women, sex education and censorship. A major focus is the ambiguous and syncopated relationship between 'progressive' and 'reactionary' tendencies. Recent secondary literature is synthesised and new archival research incorporated.

Recent secondary literature is synthesised and new archival research incorporated. : Review: 'A super text which draws together a number of themes previously neglected - a good addition to any social history course.' - Yvonne Brown, Glasgow Caledonian University: '...one of a few rare books which can be enjoyed by the general reader, used as an undergraduate text, offer fresh insights to social historians and indicate further lines of enquiry for future researchers...This is history written with transparent warmth and humanity - it will undoubtedly give pleasure to all who are fortunate enough to read it.' - Paula Bartley, Reviews in History: 'Hall's credentials for marshalling great quantities of information on her topic are impeccable.' - Times Literary Supplement: 'Excellent text, well written, comprehensive in content, accessible to students.' - Paula Bartley, University of Wolverhampton: 'This is an excellent book; superbly well informed but not weighted down with detail...It is also lively and entertaining.' - Chris Nottingham, School of Social Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University: 'Wide ranging and accurate coverage of complex and sensitive issues regarding sexuality, gender and social change.' - Melinda Barone, University College Salford: 'There are few better people better placed to give an overview of the histories of sexuality since the late nineteenth century than Lesley Hall. As a senior medical archivist at the Wellcome Trust Library and author, she has been at the forefront of new historical work on sexuality over the last ten years. The value of this book is that it displays the breadth of recent historical research into fields of enquiry that can still sometimes seem almost impossible to illuminate. Sex, Gender and Social Change since 1880 demonstrates an accumulation of knowledge of British sexuality that would have amazed an observer only a decade ago.' - Sam Pryke, Sexualities: '...Sex, Gender and Social Change in Britain since 1880 is an ideal textbook for students. It offers the best overview of the development of sexuality in Twentieth-century Britain, and promises to become essential reading for anyone interested in the topic, or to anyone hoping to teach a course on the topic. There is enough primary material to make important contributions to the field of the history of sexuality, and the synthesis of previous historical writing, which was long overdue, is both thought-provoking and convincing.' - Ivan Dalley Crozier, Journal of the History of Sexuality: 'This is an excellent overview which fills a gap in the market.' - C. Collette, Edge Hill University College : From the Author: This book covers the entire twentieth century: Sex, Gender and Social Change does not only deal with the Victorian era: while it includes a substantial introductory chapter on the Victorian background, and two chapters on the final decades of the nineteenth century, the bulk of the book is about the twentieth century, in fact it goes up to summer 1999 when I handed in the manuscript. The chapter headings are as follows: Introduction; Chapter 1: The Victorian Background; Chapter 2: Social purity and evolving sex in the 1880s; Chapter 3: Scientific sex, unspeakable Oscar, and insurgent women in the 'naughty nineties'; Chapter 4: Degenerating nation? Anxieties and protests in a new century; Chapter 5: Divorce, disease, and war; Chapter 6: Roars of rebellion, roars of reaction: the ambivalences of the twenties; Chapter 7: Population fears and progressive agendas during the thirties; Chapter 8: War and the Welfare State; Chapter 9: Domestic ideology and undercurrents of change in the fifties; Chapter 10: Swinging? for whom?

Available Now. Book Description: Que(e)rying political practices in Europe is the first queer and poststructuralist reading of political rights concepts in the specific European transnational context. In the last thirty years Europe has seen the rise of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender movements fighting nationally and transnationally for participation rights in society. In addition academic theorists have increasingly paid attention to the epistemological and ontological roles gender and sexuality play in modern politics. However, in the political process of arguing for rights the centrality of those roles is mostly hidden from view in official institutional and movement discourses. This book investigates the conceptual themes of lesbian, gay, and transgender rights and lobby politics in Europe and their open and hidden relations to binary and hierarchical orders of dominance. It contributes to an understanding of the conditions upon which politics of inclusion, participation, social justice, and equality rest and why struggles for sexual minority rights have been so difficult and slow. The book illuminates how the paradigms of political discourses constitute, consolidate, and contest the meaning and cultural significance of gender and sexuality in modern, democratic, capitalist European societies. : About the Author: Nico Beger teaches academic courses on gender and sexuality theory in Amsterdam, and currently coordinates the EU Civil Society Contact group, the joint body of the EU social, environment, development and human rights NGO platforms Size: 23.9 x 16.5 x 2.6 cm. 264 pages.

242 Pages. This text sets out to discover whether 90 Asian lone mothers from the Indian and African sub-continent living in London experience additional problems to white lone mothers because of their different ethnic and cultural background. This investigation is wholly devoted to the experience of Asian lone mothers, with the aim that it will shed some light on any difficulties specific to their group. Although most of the 90 women acknowledge that the Asian culture could cause them difficulties, being far more conservative that the English culture regarding marriage, the family, the position of women, marriage breakdown and lone parenthood, this did not mean that all their experiences were negative. Even though the majority of mothers no longer saw their former partners, they were not isolated from their family and friends or the local community, with whom they shared amicable relationships as well as receiving various types of support. Although many of the sample said they were suffering from some mental and emotional complaints because of their lone parent status, their general outlook was largely positive. Lastly, it found that the low living conditions of the mothers were similar to those of the lone parent population at large living in Britain.

"Book Description: This collection of essays addresses issues of gender in public policy by examining how the women's movement made public policy respond to certain ""private"" concerns such as family relations and sexuality and question its role in interfering with individual choice, such as issues of morality. The international collection of contributors not only address the impact of feminism on the shifts between public and private policy, but also other key factors such as the general retreat from public sector ownership and welfare provision in many Western societies. The theoretical arguments in the first part of the book are illustrated by case studies from across Europe and North America in the second part. These are structured into three sections: gender, politics and the public sector; public policy, welfare states and the status of women and public policy; and public health and the environment."

"Book Description: Exploring the ways in which women have formed and defined expressions of culture in a range of geographical, political, and historical settings, this collection of essays examines women's figurative and literal roles as ""sites"" of culture from the 16th century to the present day. The diversity of chronological, geographical and cultural subjects investigated by the contributors-from the 16th century to the 20th, from Renaissance Italy to Puritan Boston to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to post-war Japan, from parliamentary politics to the politics of representation-provides a range of historical outlooks. The collection brings an unusual variety of methodological approaches to the project of discovering intersections among women's studies, literary studies, cultural studies, history, and art history, and expands beyond the Anglo- and Eurocentric focus often found in other works in the field. The volume presents an in-depth, investigative study of a tightly-constructed set of crucial themes, including that of the female body as a governing trope in political and cultural discourses; the roles played by women and notions of womanhood in redefining traditions of ceremony, theatricality and spectacle; women's iconographies and personal spaces as resources that have shaped cultural transactions and evolutions; and finally, women's voices-speaking and writing, both-as authors of cultural record and destiny. Throughout the volume the themes are refracted chronologically, geographically, and disciplinarily as a means to deeper understanding of their content and contexts. Women as Sites of Culture represents a productive collaboration of historians from various disciplines in coherently addressing issues revolving around the roles of gender, text, and image in a range of cultures and periods. : About the Author: Susan Shifrin, Ursinus College, USA Christopher Orchard, Alison Piepmeier, Louise Ryan, Lisa Plummer Crafton, Lisa Johnson, Elizabeth McCartney, Reina Green, Susan Lamb, Sudipto Chatterjee, Etsuko Kato, Marjorie Och, Elizabeth V.

Available Now. Book Description: Religious freedom is widely agreed to be a basic human right. So are women's rights , among others, to life, to freedom from torture or captivity, and to bodily integrity. Occasionally such rights claims come into conflict, with valid arguments made on each side for the importance of safeguarding religious integrity and for the dignity of women. Alison Boden analyzes the ways in which gender and religion so complicate the use of human rights rhetoric that it can become ineffective in resolving the standoff. Women's Rights and Religious Practice traces the impediments to a legal resolution and, comparing Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity, examines the variety and complexity of theological positions on women and equality. With a perspective that respects both women's rights and religious practices, the book analyzes arguments for accommodating ethical differences, for family privacy and religious authority, and for the wishes of the women involved. It concludes that, in many instances of such conflict, a resolution is to be found in changes to familial religious ideology rather than to rights legislation and enforcement. : About the Author: ALISON L.
