  • Sexism in America
    Sexism in America

    $17.96

    Document Overview:
    Debunking the many myths about how far women have come and the pervasive belief that American society is postfeminist, this account traces women's status and the assault on their rights from the 1950s—when Newsweek declared, "for the American girl, books and babies don't mix"—to the present, exploring the deception behind women's progress and contextualizing the current situation. The legacy of the women’s movement is being short-circuited in every aspect of life, as evidenced by statistics such as the growing wage gap between men and women that begins right after college, the U.S. ranking of 31st in world gender equity—behind Latvia and the Philippines—as well as trends ranging from rising medical insurance costs to shortening life expectancy for women. This passionate, extensively documented, humorous, and persuasive argument is simultaneously enlightening, frightening, and revitalizing and helps women understand where they are and why and how they can move beyond marginalizing strategies.

    From:Taylor & Francis Inc;

    Document Overview:
    This fascinating study presents a unique social history of psychiatry in the twentieth century. It brings together the memories and narratives of over sixty patients and workers who lived, or were employed, in Severalls Psychiatric Hospital, Essex, England. Personal accounts are contextualised both in relation to wider developments and issues in twentieth-century mental health, and in relation to policies and changes in the hospital itself. Organised around the theme of space and place, and drawing upon both quantitative and qualitative material, chapters deal with key areas such as gender divisions, power relations, patterns of admission and discharge, treatments, and the daily lives and routines of patients and nurses of both sexes.

    Document Overview:
    The post-communist societies of Eastern Europe are examples of a social formation of great theoretical interest with distinctive features of its own. They reveal that Soviet imposed "real socialism" has produced more fundamental and enduring changes in the region than had generally been believed. That this is so is most evident in the societies which have historically been the most western-oriented and in which political and economic reforms are now most advanced: Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Their governments are trying to effect a transition to democracy and the free market in conditions which are not necessarily propitious. It is already clear that many of the immediate benefits which neo-liberals expcted to flow from dismantling the old system have not materialised; what the eventual outcome of the changes will be is open to question. For this reason it is better to speak of a transition from a known past to an unknown future than a transition to a guaranteed end-state.Among the central issues discussed are the legacy of real socialism, the efficacy of neo-liberal economic reforms and the demand for soical protection, the status of homo economicus, the social conditions of economic reconstruction and the social dimensions of privatisation and marketisation, the regeneration of civil society, and interest representation and the prospects for democracy. Some of the issue recall elements of Polyani's analysis of the original great transformation to a market economy in Nineteenth Century Western Europe and North America. The editors have long-standing interests in developments in post-war Eastern Europe and have collaborated over twenty years.

  • Out and Proud in Chicago
    Out and Proud in Chicago

    $27.00

    From:Agate Publishing

    Document Overview:
    Lavishly illustrated with historical color and black and white photographs, and drawing on the scholarly, historical, and journalistic contributions of a breadth of authorities on Chicago's LGBT culture and scene, this is a first-ever, one-of-a-kind overview of Chicago’s LGBT community and its history. As editor Tracy Baim writes in her introduction, “A few brave people did try to document our community, either as major events were happening or through groundbreaking historical research. These writers, journalists, photographers, filmmakers, academics and historians have tried to find many needles in the haystack, through interviews with pioneers, digging into old university and museum archives, and reading the often-biased coverage of the mainstream media. In some cases, finding out if there was a “there” there meant reading between the lines and piecing together what it was to be ‘gay’ 100 years ago.”

    From:Taylor & Francis Inc;

    Document Overview:
    In an eclectic and highly original study, Turnbull brings together a wide range of traditions as diverse as cathedral building, Micronesian navigation, cartography and turbulence research. He argues that all our differing ways of producing knowledge, including science, are messy, spatial and local. Every culture has its own ways of assembling local knowledge, thereby creating space through the linking of people, practices and places. The spaces we inhabit and assemblages we work with are not as homogeneous and coherent as our modernist perspectives have led us to believe-rather they are complex and heterogeneous motleys.
