The end of America : letter of warning to a young patriot by Naomi Wolf( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Korean and held by 1,438 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

Promiscuities : a secret history of female desire by Naomi Wolf( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Dutch and held by 213 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

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary provides a compelling look at body image issues and the role the media plays in promoting certain ideals for women. It examines eating disorders that have become commonplace in society and looks at the influence of the Barbie doll on young girls.

It also explores the new world of modelling in which models in video, film and photographs are sculpted by computer technology presenting images to emulate that are not even totally human. Includes interviews with teenagers and professionals working with eating disorder patients
