Patriarchal attitudes by Eva Figes( Book )

73 editions published between 1970 and 1987 in 6 languages and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1970, Patriarchal Attitudes has since become famous and is considered a classic feminist text. Writing with wit as well as scholarship, Eva Figes examines the factors which have helped place women in subservient roles in most societies, including the influence of Christianity, the rise of capitalism, Freudian psychoanalysis, and sexual taboos. She draws on a wide range of material to illuminate one of the central issues of our time."--Back cover

Nelly's version by Eva Figes( Book )

23 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nelly's Version could be described as Eva Figes' inventive reshaping of the pop psychological thriller. The story opens as Nelly Dean, a middle-aged woman suffering from amnesia, checks into a small-town hotel with a suitcase full of cash and no idea where it - or she - came from. Distrustful of everyone from the waiter who serves her lunch to a store clerk who claims to know her from grade school, Nelly fears she is part of a conspiracy, although she is strangely indifferent to the clues that might explain her puzzling circumstances. Part dark comedy, part mystery novel, Nelly's Version offers an unsettling journey into the mind of a witty, intelligent woman stuck in a pastless present."--Jacket
