By Norman Myers, Foreword By Kenneth E. Boulding

London: Robertson McCarta, 1990. Binding is black cloth with silver lettering on the spine; 190 pages including the index. Global warming and lightning political change, supertechnology and famine, chaos theory and the Gaia hypothesis - without doubt, the world of tomorrow will be radically different from that of today. Change is the one thing we can be sure of - environmentally, politically, socially, forces are at work that will ripple through the lives of all creatures on the planet. How far do we understand these processes and the triggers of change? How will they interact, to impact on our lives sooner than we expect? What kind of future world do we want, and how can we exerecise this choice? Do we indeed have a future? Here, for the first time, is a book that addresses these questions in a planetary context. Future Worlds provides a far-sighted, challenging, and sharply focused picture of present forces for change, likely outcomes with their mulitple interplays, and the routes to a sustainable and vital future. We have the skills, and the knowledge, to take these paths. But do we have the wisdom to choose and the courage to avoid delay? With its unique graphics, maps of regional impacts and features on the dynamics of change and how events can take us by surprise, Future Worlds marks a turning point in human perception - amd makes an important contribution to our efforts to shape a more holistic future. .

There is a Place on Earth: a Woman in Birkenau

By Giuliana Tedeschi, Translated By Tim Parks

London: Lime Tree, 1993. 218 pages; some tanning, mainly towards the edge of the pages, otherwise tight and clean. Giuliana Tedeschi, ayoung woman from Turin's Jewish intellectual community, was deported to Birkenau concentration camp in April 1944. How she summoned all her resources to remain alive and human is the subject of this remarkable autobiographical account. This is a woman's story, seen and felt through a woman's sensibility. It is an account of the destruction of the feminine personality, the ooss of the body's rhythms, of intimacy, beauty and the sense of self. Yet simultaneously it affirms the human spirit in bizarre touches of tenderness: women gently pushing prams bearing, not babies, but heaps of Nazi loot: a birch tree in leaf glimpsed as the exhausted inmates return to the camp. Miraculously, despite the ever-present threat of annihilation, what prevails is a woman's frank love of the body and the senses, and a close bond with fellow prisoners. Spanning the extremes of human experience, this book depicts a nightmare world of suffering and survival, inhabited by people stripped to their very essence.. ISBN: 0-413-45711-7. First British Paperback. Large Softcover. Near Fine. 8 1/2" x 5". Autobiography. Autobiography War Jewish Birkenau Concentration Camp Nazi. Catalogs: Biography, Women's Studies, War, Autobiography.


Raging Hormones: Do They Rule Our Lives?

By Gail Vines

London: Virago, 1993. 184 pages including the index; slight tanning towards outer edges of pages, otherwise bright and clean. Are PMT and the menopause "hormonal deficiency" diseases? Is testosterone responsible for male aggression? Do hormones determine our sexuality? Is fatness a hormonal issue? In this lively and fascinating book, Gail Vines challenges the notion that biological explanations alone can make sense of our behaviour. Drawing on evidence from both the social and natural sciences, she argues a case for a new synthesis, at the same time questioning the easy promise of a "chemical fix" from the burgeoning pharmacopoeia of hormonal drugs. Inspecting metabolic myths and mysteries, she presents important data that undermines the traditional divide between mind and body, nature and nurture, making this book a critical intervention into one of the most challenging areas of contemporary social and scientific debate.. ISBN: 1-85381-592-6. First. Large Softcover. Near Fine. 7 1/2" x 5". Health. Health Women's Studies. Catalogs: Medical, Women's Studies, Health and Fitness.

By Diane Richardson and Victoria Robinson (editors)

Women's Studies is a rapidly expanding field of study with its own concepts, theories and methodologies. Feminist insights are also transforming the academic disciplines.

This interdisciplinary introduction to Women's Studies does just this. It looks at the major subject areas of Women's Studies including, among others, "race", feminist theory, sexuality, health, education, work, the family, literature, representation, as well as debates within Women's Studies itself. Each chapter provides an overview of the main issues and debates within each area and offers suggestions for further reading. . ISBN: 0-333-54197-9. Reprint. Large Softcover.
