Freudians and feminists by Edith Kurzweil( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years ago, few observers would have foreseen that some feminists would once again turn to Freud. But in recent years, the adoption by American feminists of French concepts - especially the ideas of Lacan - has led to new approaches in feminist theory and psychology. This book traces the intellectual history of the interaction between feminists and Freudian thought, charting psychoanalytic theories through the years to show how specific notions were adapted, readapted, and discarded by successive generations of feminists

Nazi laws and Jewish lives : letters from Vienna by Malvine Fischer( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the period leading up to the Nazi genocide of Europe's Jews has been well recorded, few sources convey the incremental effect of specific decrees aimed to dehumanize the Jews who were caught in Hitler's net and how their everyday lives were transformed. These letters, written by Malvina Fischer to her daughter Mimi Weisz, have been translated and edited by her granddaughter Edith Kurzweil. They convey with vivid immediacy the fears and premonitions, the ghettoization and escape attempts that were the common experience of Viennese and German Jews in the years preceding the implementation of the "Final Solution.""--BOOK JACKET

Full circle : a memoir by Edith Kurzweil( )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a personal history of the twentieth century as seen through the eyes of Edith Kurzweil, author, teacher, editor of Partisan Review, and a recent recipient of the National Medal of Humanities. The book opens with Kurzweil early adolescence in Vienna during the Nazi takeover. It ends with the author finding herself in the new century. In between, she kept moving on and interrogating the world around her.The reader follows Kurzweil on her perilous journey, at the age of fourteen, to Belgium, through France, Spain, and Portugal, alone with her younger brother. Her fantasies of reunion with her parents in New York kept her going but came to naught: she had not expected to fall from a wealthy childhood into the life of the working-class poor, as a millinery apprentice or a diamond cutter. Instead of entering college life, she eventually became a conventional American housewife. Unhappy and anxious, she anticipated the social changes in America, and returned to Europe with her second husband and her two children. She arrived at the beginning of the Italian miracle--its post-war revitalization. In Milan she met many Americans as an active member of its community and of the British-American club. After personal tragedy she returned to New York, and only then pursued her early intellectual ambitions. The author eventually became a professor of sociology and quickly climbed up the academic ladder. Just as she had been as a little girl, she still "wanted to know everything," beginning with her study of Italian entrepreneurs and going on to European history and French thought, to psychoanalysis and anti-Semitism. Her early writings prompted William Phillips, co-founder and editor of Partisan Review, to invite her into the elite circle of New York intellectuals. She worked alongside him, first as a reader, then as executive editor, and took over the editorship of the legendary journal during its final period.Kurzweil's journey was one of

Cultural analysis : the work of Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jürgen Habermas by Robert Wuthnow( )

3 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1984, Cultural Analysis is a systematic examination of the theories of culture contained in the writings of four contemporary social theorists: Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jürgen Habermas. This study of their work clarifies their contributions to the analysis of culture and shows the converging assumptions that the authors believe are laying the foundation for a new approach to the study of culture. The focus is specifically on culture, a concept that remains subject to ambiguities of treatment, and concentrates on questions concerni
A partisan view : five decades of the politics of literature by William Phillips( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its founding in 1937, Partisan Review has been one of the most important and culturally influential journals in America. Under the legendary editorship of William Phillips and Philip Rahv, Partisan Review began as a publication of the John Reed Club, but soon broke away to establish itself as a free voice of critical dissent. As such, it counteracted the inroads of cultural Stalinism and took up the fight for aesthetic modernism at a time when the latter was fiercely contested by both the political left and the right. In A Partisan View, William Phillips gives a vivid account of his own part in the magazine's eventful history."--Jacket
