In Gut Feminism Elizabeth A. Wilson urges feminists to rethink their resistance to biological and pharmaceutical data. Turning her attention to the gut and depression, she asks what conceptual and methodological innovations become possible when feminist theory isn’t so instinctively antibiological. She examines research on anti-depressants, placebos, transference, phantasy, eating disorders and suicidality with two goals in mind: to show how pharmaceutical data can be useful for feminist theory, and to address the necessary role of aggression in feminist politics. Gut Feminism’s provocative challenge to feminist theory is that it would be more powerful if it could attend to biological data and tolerate its own capacity for harm.

This book examines the prevailing theoretical frameworks for viewing diversity in social work practice and helps students develop competencies for work with and on behalf of diverse populations. The theoretical frameworks presented in the text cover three major dimensions of the diversity theme in social work practice: ethnocultural diversity, oppression and social justice, and vulnerable, at-risk populations. While other texts tend to explore these dimensions through a single theoretical framework, Anderson provides an overview of these separate approaches. Chapters are organized so that instructors can teach and students can learn these frameworks comparatively and critically. Each chapter follows a similar outline, which includes 1) a summary of the major contributors to the framework presentation of the core concepts; 2) five to ten principles for practice in application of the framework; 3) an example of its application to a particular practice situation; 4) assessment of its strengths and limitations; 5) annotated sources for further study; and 6) discussion questions to promote critical thinking about the framework.

Hearing History is a long-needed introduction to the basic tenets of what is variously termed historical acoustemology, auditory culture, or aural history. Gathering twenty-one of the fields most important writings, this volume will deepen and broaden our understanding of changing perceptions of sound and hearing and the ongoing education of our senses. The essays stimulate thinking on key questions: What is aural history? Why has vision tended to triumph over hearing in historical accounts? How might we begin to reclaim the sounds of the past? With theoretical and practical essays on the history of sound and hearing in Europe and the United States, the book draws on historical approaches ranging from empiricism to postmodernism. Some essays show the historian of technology at work, others highlight how With theoretical and practical essays on the history of sound and hearing in Europe and the United States, the book draws on historical approaches ranging from empiricism to postmodernism. Some essays show the historian of technology at work, others highlight how military, social, intellectual, and cultural historians have tackled historical acoustemologies. Investigating soundscapes that include a Puritan meetinghouse in colonial New England, the belfries of a French village at the close of the Old Regime, the court hall of Elizabeth I, and a Civil War battlefield, the essays vary just as widely in their topics, which include noise as a marker of social and cultural differences, the privileging of music as the sound of art, the persistence of Aristotelian ideas of sound into the seventeenth century, developments in sound related to medical practice, the advent of sound-recording technology, and noise pollution.

NEVER TOO LATE Collection 2 contains Books 5-7 of the Never Too Late Series under one cover. These laugh out loud stories will convince you that it really is never too late to find romance and love. DATING A SILVER FOX (Book 5) Lydia McCarthy doesn't want any man in her life, much less an incorrigible old flirt like Morrison Fox. Widowed since her forties, being single suits her just fine. She truly can't see any sane reason to risk her peaceful existence for someone who says he wants to make wine out of her one minute and then embarrasses her the next. Does it matter at her age that Morrie might be her last chance to find true love? DATING A COUGAR II (Book 6) Firefighter and eco entrepreneur Walter Graham II is tired of unhappily dating. He wants to date Jane Fox who can turn on his body and keep up with his brain. Unfortunately, the sexy older woman is using her formidable logic to prove any relationship between them is a bad idea. But once he gets his reluctant cougar into bed, Walter intends to give Jane’s amazing mind something more important to focus on than their age difference. DATING A PRO (Book 7 ) Her tendency to buck convention as much as Harrison did definitely made Doris worthy of a tumble. She wasn’t his first older woman so the decade difference in their ages didn’t bother him a bit. After all, it wasn’t like he was going to marry the woman. All he wanted was to share her lonely divorcee bed and maybe stir things up at the club with a few mix-gender golf games. He and Doris would both have some fun. The last thing Harrison expected was to find himself falling for the most inappropriate female he’d ever met.
