Feminist debates : issues of theory and political practice by Valerie Bryson( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are women still oppressed? Is paid employment the key to liberation? Should pornography be banned? Can women in government really make a difference? Do women have an absolute right to an abortion? Is feminism just for white, middle-class women? And what about men?"--BOOK JACKET. "Feminists today disagree on these and other issues. This book provides a clear and balanced assessment of current debates and the theoretical assumptions that underlie them. By disentangling questions of style and strategy from more profound disagreements, it points the way to more effective forms of feminist political practice."--Jacket

Green politics : dictatorship or democracy? by James Radcliffe( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers a range of contradictions associated with green politics, including decentralized democratic forms versus authoritarian political forms, a belief that this is a new form of politics but one which in practice is split between traditional left and right positions, and the debate surrounding the place of rational scientific thought versus a non-rational understanding of humanity's relationship with nature."--Jacket

Feminism, the state and social policy by Nickie Charles( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks at the engagement of feminist social movements with different states in different societies, the way states influence the emergence of feminist social movements and the form they take. In some areas of policy, there have been huge changes and in others, change has been almost imperceptible. This book explores why it is easier to bring about change in some areas than others. It also asks whether these changes would have happened anyway. Are they a result of feminist social movements or of changes in economy and society? Or does the answer to this question depend on the society being studied?
Gender and colonialism : a psychological analysis of oppression and liberation by Geraldine Moane( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existentialism, feminism, and Simone de Beauvoir by Joseph Mahon( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simone de Beauvoir made her own distinctive contribution to existentialism in the form of an ethics which diverged sharply from that of Jean-Paul Sartre. In her novels and philosophical essays of the 1940s she produced not just a recognizably existentialist ethics, but also a character ethics and an ethics for violence. These concerns, stemming from her own personal philosophical background, give a vital, contemporary resonance to her work. De Beauvoir's feminist classic The Second Sex reflects her earlier philosophical interests, and is considerably strengthened by this influence. This book defends her existentialist feminism against the many reproaches which have been levelled against it over several decades, not least the criticism that it is steeped in Sartrean masculinism
Globalization and European welfare states : challenges and change by Rob Sykes( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text seeks to counter the recent vogue for somewhat unsubstantiated speculation about the impact of globalization upon welfare states. Combining both theoretical and empirical analysis it asks 'What is globalization, and how has it been implicated in recent changes to European welfare states?' Covering all the major European welfare systems, it suggests new empirical and theoretical perspectives. Globalization processes exist, but their link with welfare change is complex, and varies both between countries and types of welfare state

From a welfare state to a welfare society : the changing context of social policy in a postmodern era by John J Rodger( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The body, childhood and society( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Body, Childhood and Society examines how childhood bodies are constructed in schools, families, courts, hospitals and in film, showing the complex material, discursive and collective processes involved. Recognizing that children's bodies are a target for adult social regulation, the contributors show that children are also active in their construction, employ them in social action and resistance, and generate their own meanings about them. The editor's introduction draws these themes together by exploring the uses and limits of social constructionism for understanding both childhood and the body. Drawing on actor-network theory, he suggests that bodies and children must be seen as hybrid entities, constructed through material as well as discursive practices. In so doing he indicates new ways of thinking about childhoods as bodily and embodied phenomena."--BOOK JACKET
China in transition : issues and policies by David C. B Teather( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general theory of profit equilibrium : Keynes and the entrepreneur economy by Connell Fanning( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Maynard Keynes's seminal The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money remains central to economic debate over sixty years after its publication. This book shows how Keynes's masterpiece is best understood not as an attempt to tackle the immediate policy issues of this age but to extend the range of thought available to economists. Understood as such, it continues to provide the most effective framework to the central issues about the functioning of the economy. The authors offer a clear exposition of Keynes's thought and its continuing relevance for economists in academic, business and government life
Myths, madness, and the family : the impact of mental illness on families by David W Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book fills a gap in our knowledge about the experiences of families of people suffering from severe mental illness. Drawing on original research, it is argued that families often struggle with complex feelings such as loss and shame, and with convoluted cultural beliefs about families and madness. Families, if properly understood, can provide important support for people with severe mental illness. Families themselves, through their activities and the beliefs that surround them, can make a significant contribution to our understanding of sanity and madness
