Complaints & Disorders - The Sexual Politics of Sickness, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English
7 Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English Complaints & Disorders - The Sexual Politics of Sickness
Writers and Readers Publishing Cooperative 226456 Great Britain 1976 0904613259 / 9780904613254 Softcover Good Condition In this exciting sequel to their underground bestseller, Witches, Midwives, and Nurses, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English document the tradition of American sexism in medicine before and after the turn of the century. Citing vivid examples, including numerous "treatments" and "rest cures" perpetrated on women through the decades, the authors analyze the biomedical rationale used to justify the wholesale sex discrimination throughout our culture-in education, in jobs, and in public life. Ever since Hippocrates, male medics have treated women as the "weaker" sex. By the late 19th century, when the authority of religious documents had waned, the ultimate rationale for sex discrimination became solely biomedical. In this intriguing pamphlet, the authors raise the diffuclt question: "How sick-or well-are women today?" They assert that feminists today want more than "more": "We want a new style, and we want a new substance of medical practice as it relates to women." First two pages becoming loose. 95 pages. Light foxing to endpapers. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 250 grams. Category: Sociology; Sociology & Culture; ISBN: 0904613259. ISBN/EAN: 9780904613254. Inventory No: 226456.

Multicultural Questions, Christian Joppke & Steveb Lukes - Editors
16 Christian Joppke & Steveb Lukes - Editors Multicultural Questions
Oxford University Press 226401 Great Britain 2002 019829610X / 9780198296102 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket This volume assembles leading scholars from a range of disciplines to debate multiculturalism in theory and practice. The volume is grouped around four central questions raised by multiculturalism; Is universalism ethnocentric?; Does multiculturalism threaten citizenship?; Do minorities require group rights?; and what can Europe learn from North America? The book aims to answer these questions by moving the debate about multicultural questions into a more consensual mode. The authors show a resistance to either endorsing or rejecting multiculturalism, but a preference for dissecting and differentiating the concrete historical and geographical contexts in which specified versions of multiculturalism make sense, and others in which they do not. 267 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Sociology; Sociology & Culture; ISBN: 019829610X. ISBN/EAN: 9780198296102. Inventory No: 226401. Hardcover

The Social Animal : The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement, David Brooks
17 David Brooks The Social Animal : The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement
Random House 228644 USA 2012 0812979370 / 9780812979374 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket *#1 "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER With unequaled insight and brio, "New York Times" columnist David Brooks has long explored and explained the way we live. Now Brooks turns to the building blocks of human flourishing in a multilayered, profoundly illuminating work grounded in everyday life. This is the story of how success happens, told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica. Drawing on a wealth of current research from numerous disciplines, Brooks takes Harold and Erica from infancy to old age, illustrating a fundamental new understanding of human nature along the way: The unconscious mind, it turns out, is not a dark, vestigial place, but a creative one, where most of the brain s work gets done. This is the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made the natural habitat of "The Social Animal." Brooks reveals the deeply social aspect of our minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ. He demolishes conventional definitions of success and looks toward a culture based on trust and humility. "The Social Animal" is a moving intellectual adventure, a story of achievement and a defense of progress. It is an essential book for our time one that will have broad social impact and will change the way we see ourselves and the world." 429 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
