ADAM, RUTH
A Woman's Place, 1910-1975

Ruth Augusta Adam (1907 - 1977) was an English writer and feminist. This book is both human and humane, wise and cynical, polemical and witty. It concludes, wearily: 'A woman born at the turn of the century could have lived through two periods when it was her moral duty to devote herself, obsessively, to her children; three when it was her duty to society to neglect them; two when it was right to be seductively ''feminine''; and three when it was a pressing social obligation to be the reverse.' CONDITION 224 pages with photo plates and comic sketch illus, bright and crisp copy. DJ has been scrunched up at bottom front causing a large tear either side repaired with archival tape o/w mild wear to spine head. Near Fine/Very Good.

GLAZER, NONA Y.
Women's Paid and Unpaid Labor: The Work Transfer in Health Care and Retailing
U S A, Temple University Press. 1993, First Edition. (ISBN: 1566391997) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "Providing an original look at service occupations, Glazer offers an innovative interpretation of how managers reduce labor costs by shifting labor for paid women workers to women as family members. She critically examines the past and present practices of retailing and health service occupations as a way to better understand the de-skilling, speed-ups, and job consolidation of nurses, salesclerks, and cashiers. Glazer calls the shifting of tasks from paid to unpaid labor the "work transfer," one of the many mechanisms that managers used to change the labor process in service jobs. She maintains that these shifts in labor costs increase profit margins in a capitalistic economy that demands such increases. Drawing on social history, economics, interviews with health service workers, union newsletter accounts, and advertisements in mass market magazines and retail trade journals, this book affords new insights into how the hidden work of women is structured by changes in paid labor."

GRAY, ALISON
Mothers & Daughters
Wellington, New Zealand, Bridget Williams. 1993, Re-Issue. (ISBN: 0908912374) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "The women who grew up earlier this century expected to be wives and mothers - gardeners, cooks, churchgoers, voluntary workers, housekeepers. They brought up a generation of women, now in their forties, who became lawyers, secretaries, teachers, businesswomen, factory workers - as well as mothers. Between these generations lies extraordinary social change. The women in Mothers and Daughters talk of the different worlds they inhabit - the mothers on the one hand, the daughters on the other. At times, the two can never meet, and the stories of these women include great pain. Others tell of wonderful meetings across difference, or of reconciliation after times of difficulty. For some mothers and daughters, the relationship has always been close; others recognise that real intimacy has eluded them. Twenty-six women tell their stories - most of them as mother-daughter pairs. Anonymity allows them to speak openly of both joy and distress. These interviews, conducted by Alison Gray, have a rare honesty, allowing the reader insight into a connection that is intense and central for all generations, but remarkably so for these two groups of mothers and daughters." CONDITION 231 pages, unworn copy is bright and crisp internally, sl age toned end pages, gift inscription. #New Zealand Biography#. Near Fine.

GREEN, KAREN
Woman of Reason : Feminism, Humanism and Political Thought
United Kingdom, Polity Press. 1995, First Edition. (ISBN: 0745614493) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "Green, a lecturer in women's studies at the University of London, mounts a defense of feminist humanism. She examines the work of early theorists, male and female, including Thomas Hobbes, Jean- Jacques Rousseau, Christine de Pisan and Mary Wollstonecraft. From this historical perspective, Green argues that although female humanists wrote within a patriarchal framework, their ideas remain authentic and provide contemporary feminists with a basis on which to develop a critical voice. She rejects the claims of radical feminists who, drawing on Simone de Beauvoir's concept of "the other," call for a women's logic. According to the author, it is possible to utilize rational thought in harmony with, instead of in opposition to, emotion. This harmony, Green postulates, connects humanism to feminism. She also rejects current theories of women's sexuality that equate heterosexual sex with women's oppression." CONDITION 211 pages, very bright and crisp with mild handling signs. Very Good/N/A.

IANNELLO, KATHLEEN P
Decisions Without Hierarchy: Feminist Interventions in Organization Theory and Practice
New York, U.S.A. Routledge. 1992, First Edition. (ISBN: 0415904293) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "Based on a two-year examination of three feminist organizations: a peace group, health collective, and business women's group. From these case studies, Iannello constructs a model of organizations that, while structured, is nevertheless non-hierarchical. She terms this organization from the "modified consensus model." Her case studies show that modified consensus does not give way to pressures toward formal hierarchy and that, therefore, the model merits the attention of feminists and organization theorists alike."

LARRABEE, MARY
An Ethic of Care: Feminist and Interdisciplinary Perspectives
New York, U.S.A. Routledge. 1993, Re-Issue. (ISBN: 0415905680) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "In the 1970s Carole Gilligan undertook a study of moral decision-making in real-life situations. Her results contested a widely accepted model of moral development as the autonomous self speaking the voice of justice. Published in 1982, In A Different Voice proposed a new model of moral reasoning based on care, arguing that it better described the moral life of women. An immediate centre of controversy and one of the most discussed books of our time, In A Different Voice launched the ethic of care as a field of study. An Ethic of Care is the first volume to bring together key contributions to the extensive debate engaging Gilligan's work. It provides the highlights of the often impassioned discussion of the ethic of care, drawing on the literature of a wide range of disciplines that have entered the debate. The volume gives particular attention to the debates around feminist ethics; to the empirical studies within pyschology that examine Gilligan's allegations of sex differences in moral reasoning; and to claims that Gilligan's work is specific of white-American culture. It includes an essay by Gilligan herself in which she replies to some of her critics." CONDITION 310 pages, contents are bright and crisp, name inside front. Covers are moderately handled and curling with crease to rear cover. Good/N/A.

MATTHEWS, GLENNA
Just a Housewife: The Rise and Fall of Domesticity in America
New York, U.S.A. Oxford University Press. 1987, First Edition. (ISBN: 0195038592) Hard Cover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "The author shows how the nineteenth century's "cult of domesticity" had invested the home with great importance - as the centre of republican virtue, as the source of religious values and as an area of heady female responsibilities. But this emphasis meant that women were relegated to the domestic sphere, especially when Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' doctrine seemed to indicate that women were physically inferior to men. Ironically, the industrialization of the home in the early twentieth century failed to improve women's lot; on the contrary, it helped lose the home its place of centrality in American culture and produced a terrible dilemma for women by urging them to go into the work place but offering them very little social support for doing so."

"A groundbreaking book-the first to argue that feminism must draw on psychoanalysis to understand the ideological oppression of women. In 1974, at the height of the women's movement, Juliet Mitchell shocked her fellow feminists by challenging the entrenched belief that Freud was the enemy.

The Story of Eve
United Kingdom, Picador. 1998, First Edition. (ISBN: 0330336991) Hard Cover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "According to Norris, the history of sexism can be illuminated through the evolving interpretation of the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Beginning her study with ancient Greek myths, she equates Eve with Pandora, whose curiosity brought evil into the world. Classical writers considered women to be troublemakers, cites from Old and New Testament and apocryphal writings, medieval works and those of more recent writers. Erudite but eminently accessible, Norris's account of how religious beliefs and cultural forces have affected prevailing views of women is an important addition to the literature of women's studies."
