The female eunuch by Germaine Greer( Book )

245 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 16 languages and held by 4,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Germaine Greer takes aim at the subject of women: their cultural history, their psychological development, and their relationship to men. And what she puts forward as her central thesis is the original and provocative idea that as wives, employees, mothers, and lovers, women are not only still in bondage to men, but are deformed by them--made into eunuchs. It is not that Greer is against men (she likes them very much), or that she thinks women should take to violent action to secure their rights, but rather that every woman must come to know herself: her body and her mind. Women must also learn, she argues, their own histories and must learn to share their experiences with one another until they understand, identify, and explicitly come to terms with the many psychological techniques of domination in and out of the home.--From publisher description

In this singularly authoritative, intelligent and audacious study, Germaine Greer challenges all of our accepted notions about the physical and emotional effects of menopause and aging - and thereby lays the foundation for a drastic reassessment by women of the ways in which they contemplate and experience the stages of their lives that society has conditioned them to fear and, ultimately, to regret

Slip-shod sibyls : recognition, rejection and the woman poet by Germaine Greer( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term 'slip-shod sibyls' is adapted from a gibe of Alexander Pope. It encapsulates the common contempt for the half-educated women who dared to expose themselves in the literary market-place, convinced that they were born poets." "In this collection Germaine Greer argues that the problem is not that women who wrote poetry in English before 1900 were ignored but that, when most women were unable to express themselves in written form at all, and only a tiny minority of them dared to write in metre, the female poet was given undue attention, flattered and exploited only to be rejected and humiliated in her own lifetime and forgotten by posterity." "She argues that as much as we yearn to have women's poetry seriously studied in schools and universities, what has come down to us is not worthy of inclusion in the canon, for all kinds of reasons. In many cases the texts are inauthentic and cannot be relied upon to represent women's work or women's sensibility. In virtually all cases the poetry is intensely derivative and cannot be evaluated by readers who are unfamiliar with the poets' models."--Jacket

The boy by Germaine Greer( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With over two hundred images drawn from the whole history of Western art, illustrating the vicissitudes of the beautiful male, as toy boy, virgin soldier, naked martyr or winged genius, angel or seducer, narcissist or worshipper, we are invited to appreciate boys in all their sensuality, spontaneity and vulnerability. In exploring the iconic ideal of the beautiful boy, whether a sculpture of Cupid or David, a painting by Caravaggio or Van Dyck, or a photograph by Nan Goldin or Sally Mann, Germaine Greer demolishes one of the last great Western taboos."--Jacket

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race relations are one of the most fraught issues in the world. Almost everywhere in the world where different races rub against each other there is racism and friction. The problem is most acute with displaced indigenous people. White Australia with the history of its terrible treatment of the Aborigines is an extreme case study. In this essay, Germaine Greer shows how it could, should and must be different. The problem is not the Aborigines but the ʻsettler societyʼ and what it has done to the country. She shows how Australians must embrace their aboriginality

Ultimate Weapon: Oppenheimer And The Atomic Bomb( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the A-bomb, creates the world's deadliest weapon of mass destruction--with the "power of 1,000 suns" it can annihilate tens of thousands in a moment. His scientific brilliance is the power behind the atom bombs used against the Japanese during WWII, but his conscience led him to question the invention that helped end the war. Watch as Oppenheimer paces anxiously in New Mexico while the crew on a B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, deploys the massive "Little Boy" bomb towards the Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima. The resulting massive loss of life leads Oppenheimer to rethink the way in which nuclear energy was to be used."--Http://

White beech : the rainforest years by Germaine Greer( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One bright day in December 2001, 62-year-old Germaine Greer found herself confronted by an irresistible challenge in the shape of 60 hectares of dairy farm, one of many in south-east Queensland that, after a century of logging, clearing and downright devastation, had been abandoned to their fate. When the first replanting shot up to make a forest and rare caterpillars turned up to feed on the leaves of the new young trees, she knew beyond doubt that at least here biodepletion could be reversed. Greer describes herself as an old dog who succeeded in learning a load of new tricks, inspired and rejuvenated by her passionate love of Australia and of Earth, most exuberant of small planets
