Contemporary Western European feminism by Coren Caplan( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks the arrival of a major new history that introduces the reader to the events, trends and ideas that have marked the development of feminism as a social and ideological movement in Western Europe during the late twentieth century. The volume begins with an overview of the character and development of European feminism and a lengthy discussion of the status of women vis-a-vis technology, domestic work, politics, labor and civil liberty. Kaplan, who is fluent in seven languages, then outlines the postwar history of each country--Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland--drawing on numerous primary documents to provide the most comprehensive analysis to date of women's movements in this region of the world. Illustrating the entire kaleidoscope of European women's movements in their historical and political context, this book is essential reading for students of women's studies and activists for whom it provides both an introduction to European feminism and a vast bibliography for further reading; social movements scholars for its discussion of the various ways movements in individual countries evolved and for its analysis of different paradigms of action; and theorists and single country specialists for whom the book provides a rich basis for comparison
The orangutans by Coren Caplan( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kaplan, who also specializes in psychology, and Rogers, a biologist and neuroethologist, delve into the heart of orangutan behavior and society. They describe in amazing detail how orangutans learn from each other, mother their young, and communicate. Blending their own extensive research with the work of other scientists in the field, they offer fresh insight into orangutans' emotions and the evolution of their brains. Kaplan and Rogers wrestle with a number of intriguing questions, from how orangutans cope with grief to whether they are conscious or self-aware." "The Orangutans is also a moving treatise describing the perilous future of these magnificent forest dwellers. The authors bring an extremely grounded perspective to the politically charged issue of saving the rainforests, a battleground where biologists and environmentalists fight industry and agriculture to preserve a sensitive ecosystem. They reveal the devastating effects on the habitat of orangutans - who live only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo - of recent fires, droughts, and widespread floods. Driving home the danger we face of losing these extraordinary animals, they evaluate the best ways to protect orangutans in the wild and preserve our evolutionary heritage."--Jacket
