Mothers on trial : the battle for children and custody by Phyllis Chesler ( Book )

Overview: Completely updated and revised for the twenty-first century, Mothers on Trial remains the bible for all women facing custody battles, as well as the lawyers, psychologists, and others who support them. This landmark book was the first to break the false stereotype about mothers getting preferential treatment over fathers when it comes to custody. In this new edition, Chesler shows that, with few exceptions, the news has only gotten worse: when both the father and the mother want custody, the father usually gets it. The highly praised Mothers on Trial is essential reading for anyone concerned personally or professionally with custody rights and the well-being of our children.

The death of feminism : what's next in the struggle for women's freedom by Phyllis Chesler ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 945 libraries worldwide
[In this book, the author] calls for an overhaul of the women's movement. In this ... book, [she] asks the questions: Within feminism, is there room for free thinkers who oppose the party line? What if a feminist believes in capitalism? God? Patriotism? [The author] is the first to show the crisis in feminism today, which is silencing women and stripping them of power. In order to be a member of the club you must reject capitalism, see religion as a dangerous form of patriarchy, oppose the war, and turn a blind eye to the woman-defeating practices of Islam. The result contradicts the moral and ethical principles feminism was built on. [She] signals a critical need for women to come together in a pro-individualist form of feminism. -http://www.loc.gov/catdir.
The new anti-semitism : the current crisis and what we must do about it by Phyllis Chesler ( Book )
14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 810 libraries worldwide
"A dangerous, worldwide coalition of Islamic terrorists, well-intentioned but profoundly misinformed students, right-wing fascists, left-wing ideologues, pious academics, feminists, opportunistic European politicians, and sensation-seeking international media have joined together to once again blame the Jews and the Jewish state for the current world crisis. Today, lethal activism against the Jews often takes the form of anti-Zionism. Osama Bin Laden, for example, blamed the 9/11 World Trade Center attack on U.S. government support for Israel. Since then, hundreds of synagogues have been burned, cemeteries destroyed, and Jews threatened, boycotted, beaten, and killed. Jews have been blamed for huge stock market losses and for the decline of the world economy. The long-ago disproven Protocols of Zion, which accuse the Jews of an alleged world-conspiracy to conquer and control the world, have been revived and promulgated in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East."--Jacket.
