""Contested sacred sites pose a difficult challenge in the field of toleration. Holy sites are often at the center of intense contestation between different groups regarding a wide variety of issues, including ownership, access, usage rights, permissible religious conduct, and many other aspects. As such, they are often the source of immense levels of violence, and intractable, long standing conflicts. Governing the Sacred profiles five central contested sacred sites which exemplify the immense difficulties associated with such sites: Devils Tower National Monument (Wyoming, U.S.), Babri Masjid/Ram Janmabhoomi (Uttar-Pradesh, India), the Western Wall (Jerusalem), The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Jerusalem) and the Temple Mount/Haram esh-Sharif (Jerusalem). The in-depth, contextual and casuistic study of these sites, which differ in spatial, cultural and religious settings, enables the construction of a novel, critical typology of five corresponding models or ways of governing the sacred. By telling the fascinating stories of five high-profile contested sacred sites, Governing the Sacred develops and critically explores five different models of governing contested sacred sites: 'non-interference', 'separation and division', 'preference', 'status-quo', and 'closure'. Each model, in turn, relies on different sets of considerations, central among them, trade-offs between religious liberty and social order. Beyond its scholarly contribution, the novel typology, developed in Governing the Sacred, aims to assist democratic governments in their attempt to secure public order and mutual toleration among opposed groups in contested sacred sites""--

The question of difference—how to accommodate the complexity and diversity of women’s experiences—remains a central point of reference in debates among feminist thinkers. In Transcultural Feminist Philosophy: Rethinking Difference and Solidarity Through Chinese-American Encounters, Yuanfang Dai addresses influential approaches to the feminist difference critique. Acknowledging that gender oppression assumes different forms in different social and cultural locations, Dai denies that this rules out generalizing about women’s experiences. She proposes a category of women that captures and respects differences and dynamics among women and that can inform possibilities for women in the future. Through a critical examination of multicultural and postcolonial feminisms, she argues that we need both to rethink the concept of culture and to rework multiculturalism as an analytical and political idea. Developing a notion of transculturalism, she draws on Chinese feminist scholarship as she explores how a transcultural approach can address tensions between cultural differences and feminist solidarity. Transcultural thought and action offers a new way to explore the conditions of women’s collective struggles.

This book aims to map the diversity of meanings of gender equality across Europe and reflects on the contested concept of gender equality. In its exploration of the diverse meanings of gender equality it not only takes into account the existence of different visions of gender equality, and the way in which different political and theoretical debates crosscut these visions, but also reflects upon the geographical contexts in which visions and debates over gender equality are located. The contextual locations where these visions and debates take place include the European Union and member states such as Austria, the Netherlands, Hungary, Slovenia, Greece, and Spain. In all of these settings, the different meanings of gender equality are explored comparatively in relation to the issues of family policies, domestic violence, and gender inequality in politics, while specific national contexts discuss the issues of prostitution (Austria, Slovenia), migration (the Netherlands), homosexual rights (Spain), and antidiscrimination (Hungary). The multiple meanings of gender equality are studied through Critical Frame Analysis, a methodology that builds on social movement theory and that was refined further with elements of gender and political theory within the context of the MAGEEQ research project

By highlighting the role of the Public Sociologist and the international conception of human rights, this volume uniquely contributes to scholarship and current debates, while it also accomplishes two other objectives first, it will be useful in the classroom; and second, it reorganizes themes that relate to globalization from a new perspective. The volume does cover topics that are familiar to American sociologists - racial and economic inequalities, global capitalism, feminism, the Welfare State - and it also includes topics that are less familiar to American sociologists, such as sustainability, the United Nations, and indigenous groups. It positions Public Sociology as playing a pivotal role in American sociology.

In this book Hill applies a gender lens to the multiple systems of oppression that have shaped the lives of African American women and men. She challenges the image of a monolithic black population, a legacy of the civil rights movement that she argues is impossible to sustain in the postmodern era. Hill examines the ways in which gender has affected experiences of intimacy, family relationships, child-rearing, and motherhood for contemporary African Americans. Drawing on ethnographic material, interviews, and scholarly research, her work rethinks the cultural and historical definitions of black identity and reconceptualises the various forms of oppression faced by black women.

Women, Men, and Society provides an analysis of gender inequality that addresses how sexism affects both men and women. The revision of this highly successful text maintains its emphasis on intersecting inequalities and shows how the consequences of gender inequality can be compounded by racism, social class inequality, ageism, and heterosexism.*Includes updated statistics, both within the narrative and in the tables, and includes more tables in this edition summarizing more data in the form of graphs. *Expands the discussion of men and masculinities. *Includes more data on race/ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation where available. *Contains more coverage of issues concerning gender and technology, such as gender differences in computer/Internet usage, the Internet and pornography, and the Internet and violence against women. *Condenses the coverage of gender and social movements into Chapter 1 (previously in Ch. 13). *Integrates coverage on Ancestors and Neighbors: Social Constructions of Gender at Other Times, in Other Places, (previously Ch. 3), throughout the book. The book is now two chapters shorter than it was in the previous edition, per reviewers suggestions.
