The end of America : letter of warning to a young patriot by Naomi Wolf( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this timely call to arms, Naomi Wolf compels us to face the way our free America is under assault. She warns us with the straight-to-fellow-citizens urgency of one of Thomas Paine's revolutionary pamphlets that we have little time to lose if our children are to live in real freedom. Wolf shows that there are ten classic steps dictators or would-be dictators always take when they wish to close down an open society. Each of those ten steps is now underway in the United States today. The End of America will shock, enrage, and motivate spurring us to act, as the Founders would have counted on us to do in a time such as this, as rebels and patriots to save our liberty and defend our nation."--Provided by publisher

Promiscuities : a secret history of female desire by Naomi Wolf( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and Dutch and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dynamic new book Naomi Wolf explores and celebrates the phenomenon of female sexuality - empirically, imaginatively, anatomically and personally. By following a group of four contemporary girls - including her younger self as they come of age in the seventies, Wolf shows how our culture tries to shape and confine women's desire. Embarking on a voyage of discovery, she illustrates how flawed and prescribed are the notions of what women want, and how these change through the ages - from Taoist techniques for giving women pleasure, to Victorian repression, and the so-called liberated nineties. Drawing on scholarly texts, secret diaries, real life and fantasy, she demonstrates that female sexuality is wilder, more demanding and more powerful than our culture dares to accept. -- Product Description

The end of America letter of warning to a young patriot : a citizen's call to action by Naomi Wolf( Recording )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author Wolf shows that there are ten classic steps would-be dictators always take when they wish to close down an open society, and shows how each of those ten steps is underway in the United States today. Our Constitution was built to protect civil liberties and develop a careful system of checks and balances which protect our freedom from tyranny. Wolf argues that the escalation of executive power has eroded these core values and systems, limiting the ability of our Congress to make laws, and of our courts to interpret them--a scenario that our Founding Fathers foresaw and warned against. In this citizen call to action, reminiscent of Thomas Paine's Common Sense, Wolf outlines the real threats to our civil liberties and explains how we can work together to save our liberty and defend our nation.--From publisher description

The beauty myth : the culture of beauty, psychology, and the self with Naomi Wolf( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Naomi Wolf revolutionized our understanding of the relationship between "beauty"and female identity. She presents her definitive treatise on The beauty myth: the culture of beauty, psychology, and the self. On a sweeping historical canvas, from the Industrial Revolution to today's multi-billion-dollar diet and cosmetic industries, Wolf exposes the beauty myth as a distinct cultural narrative - a fiction that "beauty" exists objectively and universally. Having set her stage, Wolf next reveals why "beauty" must be understood within the power structures of political and economic systems - and how "beauty" is used as a kind of currency, like money itself. She incisively illustrates how beauty is a story about female identity told through a cultural system of images: a potent narrative designed to sell products and support a hierarchical system of social relations - with devastating consequences for female well-being, and for our most intimate relationships. From the first printing press to today's women's magazines, Wolf illuminates how, as women made powerful strides in economic and political spheres, the beauty myth took hold as a new set of fictions, and as a new sphere of control. She reveals how "beauty" came to replace domesticity as a core social virtue, with its own injunctions and prescriptions, not unlike religion itself. With wit and clarity, Wolf illustrates why the beauty myth has nothing to do with appearances - but, instead, with channeling female identity into an ever-narrowing sphere of consumption, competition, and anxiety. From workplace equality and sexual harassment, to cosmetic surgery and eating disorders, to the very core of social and romantic relationships, Wolf powerfully illuminates the psychological and physiological ravages of the beauty myth. Naomi Wolf wraps this extraordinary film presentation within a stirring vision of how we might transcend the beauty myth by shedding light on the cultural and economic systems that perpetuate it
