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." CONDITION Red bds with Black cloth spine (clean with sharp cnrs) pp xvii 281. Crisp and unread copy, DJ has very slight shelf wear. As New/Near Fine.

NORRIS, PAMULA
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." CONDITION Black bds with Silver title (unworn) pp xvi 496 with b/w plates and nice wood block illus reproduced. Crisp copy with light edge toning. DJ unworn. Overweight. Very Good/Very Good.
