Item Description: Punctum Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 178 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Contention: The Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Protest is a scientific journal which aims to offer a novel contribution to the study of social protest. The journal intends to advance knowledge about a comprehensive range of collective actions, social movements and other forms of political and social contention. Its main purposes are to offer a multidisciplinary forum to scholars from different fields and to bridge the gap between them, within and across the social sciences and humanities. Social protest emerges from a complexity of phenomena. Different research traditions have developed dissimilar, and sometimes divergent, sets of analytical tools through which to explore social actions, social movements, social protest and other forms of contention. These differences are often paralleled by a priori epistemological endeavours and ontological claims about the nature of the object of study, the relevance of its proprieties, and the appropriate level of analysis. This special issue of Contention on FEMINIST PERSPECTIVES refrains from presenting feminist protest, or the feminist movement, as one unified, cohesive entity. Rather, it seeks to offer up a variety of feminist approaches to different areas of activism, research, critical thinking, and knowledge production. We embrace feminisms in the plural, not as a move towards unmoored relativism, but as affirmation that problems-and solutions-are never monolithic. Neither Beyonce s feminism nor Bella Abzug s is the right one for every time and place, and only by embracing diversity within feminism can we hope to address the diverse types of gender-based oppression still present in the world. The authors in this volume have taken questions of gender very seriously, but have also committed to intersectional analysis: they have grounded their research practices and writing strategies in the specific contexts they examine, and situated themselves within that context. Their articles provide five concrete instances of engagement with feminist questions, in disciplines ranging from literary analysis to social sciences. Beyond emphasizing the need for a variety of strategies, the present collection of essays also exemplifies guidelines for action which can be built upon in the future. In other words, the scholarship presented here does not seek only to bring attention to different instances of gender inequality, but also to help us take the next step, by demonstrating individual approaches to tackling these complex problems.

Polyphonic voices of Indian feminism/Shyam S. Agarwalla. 15. Feminism today perspective/T.M.J. Indra Mohan. English is being written and read today by more people outside England than inside. This applies no less to the women writers in English across the globe who have made their unmistakable mark in English literature[s] especially in the last century. The present volume the second in the new projected series of Atlantic publishers and distributors studies in women writers in English bears evidence to this phenomenon as the critics address women writers in English in various parts of the globe rather than concentrating on canonised mainstream authors and texts and thus mainstream writers figure only referentially in the margin of these critical texts as it were. Again understandably Indian writers take over a chunk of the space. However the essays included in this volume cover authors from America Canada and India and also some general theoretical discourse regarding feminism and marginal literature. The authors discussed in this volume are Christina Rossetti of England Emily Dickson Harper Lee Lorraine Hansberry and Sylvia Plath of America Margaret Atwood and Kamala Markandaya Kamala Das Nayantara Sahgal Anita Desai Githa Hariharan of India. Apart from this a wide spectrum of Indian writers have been referred to and treated in the general articles on feminist theory and practice especially in India today and yesterday. The sixteen essays of the volume will be found interesting as well as useful by students teachers and scholars and will also be enjoyed by the general readers. 192 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 54412

"The new series--Studies in Women Writers in English-- is a grateful acknowledgement of the contribution and public recognition of the emerging voice of women in the arena of literature during the last few centuries, and especially in the latter half of the twentieth century. Women writers across the globe have made their distinctive mark, with their own perception of life--be it feminine, or feminist or female. The critique of work by women writers introduced in the present volume, the sixth in the series, bears evidence to the growing critical attention towards authors writing outside the mainstream, in America, Canada, and especially in India, who can be seen sharing similar awareness feelings regarding the woman's angst and aspirations. Since most of the authors discussed in these articles are prescribed in the English Syllabus in the Universities of India, both the teachers and the students will find them extremely useful, and the general readers who are interested in literature in English and/or women writers will also find them intellectually stimulating."

See also Halkett and Laing and Aresty & Heltzel. Aresty notes: "Next to Peacham and Braithwaite, Richard Allestree was probably the third most important conduct guide for 17th century gentlemen. In The Gentleman's Calling, 1660, he dealt almost exclusively with the gentleman's spiritual needs and dwelt on the responsibilities of fortunate birth. " Allestree argued that the gifts of wealth and breeding were meant to be shared and the possessor was merely the lucky conduit through which they passed. He goes on to note that leisure should be used by the gentleman in "preventing or curing spiritual maladies."[See Aresty p.95-96]. Bookseller Inventory # 20027
