Women in the Ancient World
Women in the Ancient World (June 1984)
The Arethusa Papers
John Peradotto - Editor
J. P. Sullivan - Editor

One of the reasons for the study of the Greek and Roman classics is their perpetual relevance. In no area can this position be more clearly defended than in the investigation of the feminine condition, for it was here that basic attitudes derogatory to the sex were molded by legal and social systems, by philosophers and poets, and by the thinking of men long since gone.

Women in the Ancient World brings together essays that examine ph...(Read More)
Women, Men, and the International Division of Labor
Women, Men, and the International Division of Labor (June 1984)
June C. Nash - Editor
Maria P. Fernandez-Kelly - Editor

The last few decades have witnessed a growing integration of the world system of production on the basis of a new relationship between less developed and highly industrialized countries. The effect is a geographical dispersion of the various production stages in the manufacturing process as the large corporations of industrialized "First World" countries are attracted by low labor costs, taxes, and relaxed production restrictions available in develo...(Read More)
Work and Lifecourse in Japan
Work and Lifecourse in Japan (June 1984)
David W. Plath - Editor

The durability of Japan's industrial products now holds world acclaim. But the durability of jobs in Japan--despite misleading Western images of lifetime employment--is no better than in other industrial nations. The "group model" of Japanese society that has been in fashion in the West confuses the goals of an organization with the personal aims and aspirations of its members. Like workers anywhere, those in Japan must go through life reconciling t...(Read More)
Work in Market and Industrial Societies
Work in Market and Industrial Societies (June 1984)
Herbert Applebaum - Editor

It's a living! That fact, no one can deny. Yet the significance of work--productive activity which alters the physical environment to meet human needs--goes far beyond the paycheck. Work involves, among other things, embracing a set of roles and beliefs, mastering skills and knowledge, and behaving in ways considered appropriate for the achievement of a desired level of productivity and quality.

This book is an informative and highly reada...(Read More)
Work in Non-Market and Transitional Societies
Work in Non-Market and Transitional Societies (June 1984)
Herbert Applebaum - Editor

In industrialized cultures, what we do to earn a living is usually divorced from what we do the rest of the time. This contrasts with non-market cultures, where work is an intimate part of life. People of such cultures perceive a unity between hunting and raising a family, between making pots and training children, between the building of houses and the practice of religion. Often there is no separate word for work because w...(Read More)
Yeats's Heroic Figures
Yeats's Heroic Figures (June 1984)
Wilde, Parnell, Swift, Casement
Michael Steinman - Author

Heroic man and "the lies of history," the myths that surrounded them, were vital to the Irish poet William Butler Yeats. This study examines the four Anglo-Irish historical figures who dominated his life and art: Oscar Wilde, Charles Stewart Parnell, Jonathan Swift, and Roger Casement. All were creators--whether they conceived their life artistically, conceived an intellectual vision of Ireland free, or made lasting art. Their powers were matche...(Read More)
Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali
Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali (June 1984)
Containing his yoga aphorisms with Vyasa's commentary in Sanskrit and a translation with annotations including many suggestions for the practice of yoga
Swami Aranya Hariharananda - Author

"It is the most readable and reliable account of classical yoga that I know. There are, of course, numerous secondary works on yoga, many of which are useful and some of which have considerable scientific value. There are few good editions of the actual primary sources, however, and Hariharananda's is one of those." -- Gerald J. Larson, Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Santa Barbara

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are universal...(Read More)

A Moral Response to Industrialism
A Moral Response to Industrialism (June 1983)
The Lectures of Reverend Cook in Lynn, Massachusetts
John T. Cumbler - Author

In the 1870s and 1880s, Joseph Cook was a fiery young congregational minister in the industrial town of Lynn, Massachusetts. His extraordinarily successful series of "music hall" lectures on factory reform and industrialism earned him renown as an articulate spokesman for the troubled middle class in the industrializing Northeast.

The lectures touch on such topics as child labor, social control, urbanization, the theater and the press--with ...(Read More)
