Virginia Woolf against empire by Kathy J Phillips( Book )

From her first book to her last, Virginia Woolf consistently satirized British society. Only in recent years, however, has Woolf been recognized as a political thinker, let alone one with a sophisticated grasp of complex ideologies. In Virginia Woolf against Empire, Kathy J. Phillips makes a major contribution to the growing recognition of Woolf as a cultural commentator. Phillips argues that Woolf satirizes social institutions largely through incongruous juxtapositions that link empire making, militarism, and gender relations. One of Woolf's key insights, Phillips shows, is her exposure of a pervasive cultural image that equates women and land - a metaphor resulting from her culture's displacement of sexuality onto militarism and the transference of the individual's need to be included into an all-embracing empire. As Woolf's novels demonstrate, the metaphor works in both directions: to corrupt the relation of men to women with possessiveness and to turn England's relation to its colonies into a kind of substitute for sexual gratification. A unique feature of this study is Phillips's investigation of how Leonard Woolf's books on colonialism specifically influenced Virginia Woolf's novels and vice versa. Virginia Woolf drew her concepts of political systems and theories from her husband's anti-imperialist writings. Phillips also shows how specific factual details from Leonard Woolf's books help to illuminate some of Virginia Woolf's metaphors and allusions

Manipulating masculinity : war and gender in modern British and American literature by Kathy J Phillips( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manipulating Masculinity uses literature from World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq wars to argue that when a society labels broadly human traits "feminine," that society can more easily manipulate men to war. All men are bound to detect some of those traits in themselves - and then fear that they have strayed into a feminine, inferior realm. If a society convinces men that fighting is essentially manly, it entices men to war simply to prove that they are not their sisters (sissy, wimp, wuss). Western cultural attitudes toward sex also fuel wars by encouraging the displacement of sexuality into violence, by fostering titillation in combination with guilt and its accompanying need for self-punishment (which war abundantly supplies), and by defining sexual orientations so as to provoke self-doubt in everyone."--Jacket
This isn't a picture I'm holding : Kuan Yin by Kathy J Phillips( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bodhisattva Kuan Yin remains one of the most popular figures in Buddhism, loved and worshiped throughout Asia for over a millennium. She arrived in Hawai'i with the first Chinese plantation workers, each of whom would have kept a ricepaper print of her over a small altar in his room. Since then, her presence has grown in the Islands. In Chinese, Japanese, and Korean temples in downtown Honolulu and Palolo Valley, she towers over worshipers and their gifts of oranges. Her image, reproduced by the dozen, crowds Thai and Vietnamese shops." "In this book, Kathy Phillips and Joseph Singer celebrate Kuan Yin's many incarnations in words and images that exhibit humor, poignancy, and the open-endedness of a koan. An introduction examines Kuan Yin and her place in religion, legend, art, changing social prescriptions for gender, and the everyday lives of Hawai'i's people for more than a century."--BOOK JACKET

"A 19th-century Shaker woman hides packets of her writing because her brother threatens to tear up such hogwash. When a present-day schoolteacher discovers these pages, she writes to a Honolulu librarian for traces of the brother, a whaler. As the Shaker communes were staunchly socialist and pacifist, Ginn and Van are drawn into a correspondence via their interest in still current social problems in Lydie's emerging pages."--Https://www.createspace.com/6878467
