Women Struggling For a New Life
Women Struggling For a New Life (January 1996)
The Role of Religion in the Cultural Passage From Korea to America
Ai Ra Kim - Author

What I like about this book is that it takes history seriously and makes an argument for how the socialization/enculturation of Korean women is influenced by the period of the Yi Dynasty. Kim weaves theory and empirical data together in a way that I found quite helpful. Moreover, she deals with class issues that are often overlooked in works such as these. The book is so well organized that I could hardly put it down once I started to read. Her conc...(Read More)

The Self on the Shelf
The Self on the Shelf (August 1994)
Recovery Books and the Good Life
Gary Greenberg - Author

"It provides a new and thought-provoking view of a contemporary phenomenon that many of us have become familiar with: the proliferation of popular self-help books on codependency. In a sense it addresses one of the more central concerns of our age: who are we? What does it mean these days to be a good person? The author sets out deliberately to give us a reading, even a diagnosis, of our contemporary culture. I would buy it!" -- Martin J. Packer,...(Read More)

Ecotone (July 1994)
Wayfaring on the Margins
Florence R. Shepard - Author

Ecotone: Wayfaring on the Margins, a personal history of place, is written from the perspective of a teacher, naturalist, and feminist and uses the metaphor of the biological ecotone as the boundary where inner and outer landscapes of the woman/nature continuum meet.

Dyke Ideas
Dyke Ideas (March 1994)
Process, Politics, Daily Life
Joyce Trebilcot - Author

Dyke Ideas is a passionate and insightful contribution to lesbian philosophy. The main value is wimmin--women separate from men and men's inventions. "Craziness," guilt, competition, sex, and other topics are explored in ways that reject male values and move toward wimmin-identified cultures.

Method is central. The authoritarian, God's-eye stance typical of academic writing is disavowed in favor of an approach that denies that others "...(Read More)

Heterosexism
Heterosexism (December 1993)
An Ethical Challenge
Patricia Beattie Jung - Author
Ralph F. Smith - Author

In this ground-breaking book the authors show that the prevailing sexual ethic is no longer useful. It presumes as ideal, a uniform morality based on a limited understanding of human sexuality. Heterosexism is revealed to be a system of prejudice that both grows out of and supports this ethic. It produces various forms of discrimination, particularly those against gay and lesbian people, that cannot be justified.

The authors investigate scr...(Read More)
 
 
Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space
Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space (October 1993)
Reflections on Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy of Embodiment
Suzanne L. Cataldi - Author

"After a decade or two of dominance by behaviorist thinkers, followed by another decade or two of dominance by cognitive theorists, the time is ripe for study of the emotions (and affections in general) to assume center stage. Much evidence indicates that this is indeed happening and Cataldi's work appears just in time. She is a gifted thinker, with tremendous focus and uncanny writing skills." -- Robert Marrone, California State University, Sacra...(Read More)

Women and Solitude

The Center of the Web examines the complexities of how solitude is perceived by women.

The voices in the book come from varied vantage points, illuminating women's perspectives of solitude with regard to class, culture, race, and sexual identity. Some essay...(Read More)
