Arguing About Sex
Arguing About Sex (July 1995)
The Rhetoric of Christian Sexual Morality
Joseph Monti - Author

This book is about current issues in sexual morality, the Christian church, and moral argument in late modernity.
"The author achieves a synthesis that is rare and difficult. By shifting the initial focus away from narrowly envisioned discussions of sexual morality to its larger, cultural, ecclesial or communal, and historical contexts, the author does great service in articulating a very 'rich' praxis appropriate to the cultural-spiritu...(Read More)

An examination of the class and gender conditions of working-class women in the coal mining fields reveals how they struggled for development and change and how the struggle sometimes lead to empowerment.

"If I were to choose a single book by means of which to introduce North Americans to the real meaning of liberation theology, it would be this book." -- From the Foreword, Robert McAfee Brown

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)

Urban Social Movements in Jerusalem
Urban Social Movements in Jerusalem (July 1993)
The Protest of the Second Generation
Shlomo Hasson - Author

"The book deals with the 'routinization of charisma' in these movements. Hasson shows the importance of leadership, the origins of leaders, et cetera. He describes the paths of both those who came from gang backgrounds and those who did not. He addresses the roles of social workers and politicians in initiating, sustaining, and coopting these groups."
-- Walter P. Zenner, State University of New York at Albany

Hasson explores the devel...(Read More)
 
 
Ideal Citizens
Ideal Citizens (March 1993)
The Legacy of the Civil Rights Movement
James Max Fendrich - Author

"Fendrich's book represents an invaluable corrective to the tendency to view the 'sixties experience' as synonymous with the lives of white college students. Not only did the era begin with the black student sit-in movement, but a far larger percentage of black college students participated in some form of protest activity than did their white student counterparts. The book is also unique for the empirical comparison it affords of the past and pre...(Read More)
