Revisioning gender( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and German and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive handbook attempts to summarize the state of gender studies not only by examining the crucial research of the past decade, but by encouraging thinking about how the questions central to studying gender have themselves changed. Building on the work started by the contributors to this volume's predecessor (Analyzing Gender, Sage 1987), editors Myra Marx Ferree, Judith Lorber, and Beth B. Hess reflect on the advances of gender scholarship during the past decade with its emphasis on all levels of social structure from the most macro to the most individual. Revisioning Gender is a step toward constructing a new analytical approach for the social sciences, one that calls into question disciplinary boundaries and the specific agendas entailed therein

Shaping abortion discourse : democracy and the public sphere in Germany and the United States by Myra Marx Ferree( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using controversy over abortion as a lens through which to compare the political process and role of the media in these two very different democracies, this book examines the contest over meaning that is being waged by social movements, political parties, churches and other social actors. Abortion is a critical battleground for debates over social values in both countries, but the constitutional premises on which arguments rest differ, as do the strategies that movements and parties adopt and the opportunities for influence that are open to them

Gender, violence, and human security : critical feminist perspectives by Aili Mari Tripp( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of human security is changing globally: interstate conflict and even intrastate conflict may be diminishing worldwide, yet threats to individuals and communities persist. Large-scale violence by formal and informal armed forces intersects with interpersonal and domestic forms of violence in mutually reinforcing ways. Gender, Violence, and Human Security takes a critical look at notions of human security and violence through a feminist lens, drawing on both theoretical perspectives and empirical examinations through case studies from a variety of contexts around the globe. This fascinating volume goes beyond existing feminist international relations engagements with security studies to identify not only limitations of the human security approach, but also possible synergies between feminist and human security approaches. Noted scholars Aili Mari Tripp, Myra Marx Ferree, and Christina Ewig, along with their distinguished group of contributors, analyze specific case studies from around the globe, ranging from post-conflict security in Croatia to the relationship between state policy and gender-based crime in the United States. Shifting the focus of the term "human security" from its defensive emphasis to a more proactive notion of peace, the book ultimately calls for addressing the structural issues that give rise to violence. A hard-hitting critique of the ways in which global inequalities are often overlooked by human security theorists, Gender, Violence, and Human Security presents a much-needed intervention into the study of power relations throughout the world

Rethinking social movements : structure, meaning, and emotion by Jeff Goodwin( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This landmark volume brings together some of the titans of social movement theory in a grand reassessment of its status. For some time, the field has been divided between a dominant structural approach and a cultural or constructivist tradition. The gaps and misunderstandings between the two sides-as well as the efforts to bridge them-closely parallel those in the social sciences at large. This book aims to further the dialogue between these two distinct approaches to social movements and to show the broader implications for social science as a whole as it struggles with issues including cult

From policy to polity : democracy, paternalism, and the incorporation of disadvantaged citizens by Sarah K Bruch( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article investigates how experiences with public policies affect levels of civic and political engagement among the poor. Previous studies suggest that direct encounters with welfare institutions can produce "feedback effects" on political attitudes and behaviors that vary by policy design. To advance this literature, we take up three outstanding questions related to problems of selection bias, the distinction between universal and targeted programs, and the types of authority relations most likely to foster engagement among the poor. Taking advantage of a dataset with unique benefits for the study of feedback effects among low-income populations, we estimate effects associated with three types of means-tested public assistance. We find that the feedback effects of these policies are not an illusion created by selection bias; the feedback effects of targeted programs can be positive as well as negative; and such effects tend to be more positive when a policy's authority structure reflects democratic rather than paternalist principles
