About the Book Feminist Poststructuralist Discourse Analysis helps analyse how speakers construct their gendered identities within a complex web of power relations. Demonstrated here through a study of teenagers conversation in class and senior managers discussions in business meetings, it challenges the view that females are disempowered in mixed-sex settings. Reviews The strength of the book lies in the theoretical chapters that clearly define components of FDPA. Overall, Baxter makes a convincing case for the usefulness of FDPA as a supplementary tool in the discourse analysts repertoire - Adam Hodges, University of Colorado, in Discourse & Society .

About the Book This book explores how girls growing up in girl power media culture understand gender, self, empowerment, and resistance. CONTENTS Growls And Whimpers: The Roots of Girl Power Discourse When Asked to Talk: Qualitative Research With Teen Girls Wanna Get Dirrty? Determining Authentic Sexual Subjectivity The Clothed Body: Girls’ Social and Emotional Experiences of Style “I Don’t Know What I’m Going to Do When It Happens”: Independence, Motherhood, Careers, and Imagining the Future “If Feminism Is Believing That Women Are Humans, Then I Am a Feminist”: Girls Define Feminism and Feminist Practice Conclusion Cultural Discordance: Neoliberal Girl Power Meets Social Reality Reviews "What distinguishes Feminism Inc. from prior discussions of girl power is Zaslow s focus on how girls react to media rather than a close analysis of that media . . .It is the voices of these teens that compel the reader." - Ms. Magazine "Emilie Zaslow has produced an important and long overdue book in Feminism, Inc. Unpacking the assumption that today s teens have rejected feminism and its ideals outright, Zaslow finds that in fact, feminism is as vital for young women today as it ever was for their mothers and grandmothers. Based on an exhaustive analysis of the values and words of young women, as well as on an intensive analysis of their mediated cultural and social environments, Zaslow produces a tour-de-force that persuasively argues that young women are able to critically appraise their social and cultural environment along paths blazed by the feminists who have gone before. Essential reading for everyone interested in the future of women." - Andrea Lee Press, Professor of Sociology and Professor and Chair of Media Studies at the University of Virginia "Feminism, Inc. is an important, much-needed, lively read for all those concerned with the well-being of today s girls and the future of gender equity.By skillfully securing a place for diverse teen-girl voices in a theoretically grounded and extensively researched book, Emilie Zaslow reminds us that girl power culture, while perhaps facilitating individual empowerment, does little to teach girls about the power of solidarity and collective action needed for structural social change." - Dafna Lemish, Professor of Communication at Tel Aviv University; Editor of the Journal of Children and Media "Feminism, Inc.'s greatest strength is the inclusion of interview and focus group data with the girls. By taking this study beyond a content analysis of girl power discourse in the media and examining the intersection of those ideas and how girls make sense of them, the processes behind the girls' conceptualization become visible. . . .This book is accessible for students at the undergraduate and gradate level and would be of particular interest in sociology, communication, and women's studies classes. While Zaslow could have found herself caught up solely in a discussion of media, as the amount aimed at teenage girls is almost endless, she maintains a clear focus on how the girls understand and interact with media." - Christina Panagakis, University of Buffalo, SUNY, in Gender& Society

About the Book What should be done about trafficking in women? Aradau shows that the problematization of trafficking as a security issue limits what can be done. Exploring the complex relationship between security, politics and subjectivity, this book suggests new forms of action which transcend security practices. Reviews Claudia Aradau is one of the most innovative thinkers in security studies today. Alternating between a provocative but highly insightful analysis of the securitising of trafficking of women and an incisive critique of recent developments in security studies, she argues that politics in the name of security is counter-productive, if not impossible. This is a wonderfully rich and topical book that firmly redefines both security studies and studies of trafficking of women as a study of political practice and the political. - Jef Huysmans, Senior Lecturer, Department of Politics and International Studies, Open University, UK and author of The Politics of Insecurity Aradau offers a complex, multifaceted account of how security policies, practices and discourses touch the bodies of women defined as trafficked [providing] a comprehensive set of practical and theoretical elements to strategize a way out of security. Guillermina Seri, Radical Philosophy 150, July/August 2008 Combining the analysis of trafficking with an engaged account of recent security debates, and building on an extensive reading of political and social theory, Rethinking Trafficking in Women: Politics Out of Security is an impressive as well as an ambitious book. Lene Hansen, Cooperation and Conflict: Journal of the Nordic International Studies Association Vol. 43: 2008 Aradaus book provides some fascinating [...] material on the practices of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) involved in the rescue, return and rehabilitation of trafficked women.

About the Book:- This new edition of a classic feminist book explains how one of the great historical revolutions - the ongoing movement toward equality between the sexes - has come about. Its origins are to be found, not in changing ideas, but in the economic developments that have made women's labour too valuable to be spent exclusively in domestic pursuits. The revolution is unfinished; new arrangements are needed to fight still-prevalent discrimination in the workplace, to achieve a more just sharing of housework and childcare between women and men, and, with the weakening of the institution of marriage, to re-erect a firm economic basis for the raising of children. CONTENTS:- Why Did Women Emerge? The Social Factors: Births, Schools, Divorces, Ideas “Women’s Place” in the Labor Market Occupational Segregation by Sex: The Root of Women’s Disadvantage Setting the Pay for the Jobs Women Hold Government Action Against Discrimination Affirmative Action and Pay Equity The Occupation of Housewife Lone Parents and their Poverty Keeping House: The Economics and Politics of Family Care “Industrializing” Housework and Child Care A Policy Agenda for the Sex-Role Revolution Reviews:- "Recommended for specialists and laypersons who want a compact but thorough treatment of this area and for courses in women's studies and labor studies. - Library Journal Praise for the First Edition: "This is a wonderfully provocative book. Professor Bergmann traces how women's participation in the economy has grown and its implications for how we do and could live. The reader may not agree with all of Professor Bergmann's twelve-point policy agenda for further transforming the work place, the economy, and the home, but will most certainly be forced to consider anew our present arrangements and the usual policy prescriptions." - Heidi Hartmann, Institute for Women's Policy Research "The Economic Emergence of Women is a lively discourse on the status of women in the work place and at home...At her verbal best, the author displays a keen ability to to show up the flaws in an opponent's position...this is an excellent book . The author offers fresh insights and interesting recommendations on public policy for a broad range of topics including the welfare system, the plight of the single parent, the job of the housewife, and the industrialization of housework and childcare. The book is well worth its modest cost for both those who are actively concerned with the economic and social issues on feminist agendas, and for more general readers." - Journal of Economic Literature "The Economic Emergence of Women documents an economic revolution that has occurred with women entering the labor force in very large numbers, but a sociological revolution that has not occurred where women would be treated as economic equals in every respect. To get this sociological revolution started will take an ideological revolution in the roles (at home, work, and in society) that women are expected to play. Professor Bergmann pointedly describes both what has happened, what is happening, and what will have to happen if women are ever to be full participants in the American economy." - Lester C. Thurow, Cordon Y. Billard Professor of Management and Economics, MIT " 'Economic Woman' is the focus of this superb analysis of the constraints and opportunities American women face in today's labor market. Barbara Bergmann lucidly sorts out the complex factors and theories that account for the place of women in the economic structure, and offers sensible and realistic suggestions for analysis and remedy for women's difficulties in achieving equality in the work world. This book is a must for the policy maker, social scientist, and general informed reader." - Cynthia Fuchs Epstein, author, Women in Law

About the Book Through empirical material as well as theoretical discussions, this book explores developments in gender-technology relations from the 1980s to today. The author draws on her long-lasting research in the field, providing insight in both historical and more recent discussions of gender in relation to computers and computing. Contents Changing Images of Computers and Its Users since 1980 Discursive Developments within Computer Education Variations in Gender-ICT Relations among Male and Female Computer Students Stories about Individual Change and Transformation Layered Meanings and Differences Within Is There an Elsewhere? Reviews 'Corneliussen examines why expansive gender equity in Norway seems to influence every major segment of society - except computing technology. Her discourse analysis explores reasons for stability in gender-ICT relations, and suggests pressure points for change.' - Thomas J. Misa, University of Minnesota, USA 'Corneliussen's book is a challenging intervention into the debate over gender and technology. Through a diffractive reading of the research, Corneliussen tells an alternative story about gender and technology, demonstrating that their relations are not stable and fixed but hold potential for change.' - Susan Hekman, University of Texas at Arlington, USA

About the Book :- International Relations (IR) theorists speak with conviction, and often passion, to the global condition of human society. The result is an important, dynamic and often deeply divided field. This long-awaited new edition of International Relations Theory Today offers undergraduate and postgraduate students an essential guide to the complex terrain of IR theory and the key questions on its agenda. With chapters by 25 prominent and provocative IR theorists, the book reveals the intellectual excitement - and turmoil - of theorizing world politics. It reflects the conflicts and tensions around the profound challenges facing the contemporary world, such as climate change, globalization, nuclear proliferation, and economic and political injustice and conflict, while also expressing hope that we can better understand, and respond to, these challenges. Above all, this book demonstrates the significance of thinking theoretically about international relations and developing the tools not merely to describe but also to explain, analyse, prescribe and possibly re-imagine the global political landscape. As the world comes face-to-face with historic challenges over the coming decades, International Relations Theory Today will help its readers to participate more effectively in debates about the most important global political dilemmas of our time.

About the Book Until the 20th century, there has been more consideration of the rights of the accused than those of the victims. Even with the advent of the victimology movement, changes have been minimal for the marginalized community of victims and their families. In 2009, the addition of Section 357 to the Indian Criminal Procedure Code mandates that the State grant compensation to the victims of crime, but the execution of these schemes in practicality remains impaired by procedural loopholes and territorial applicability. The authors of this book undertake a global policy analysis in the arena of victim assistance in comparison to the one in India and suggests certain legislative reforms for consideration of our policy analysts, lawmakers and victim rights activists. The book, Victims Assistance in India is an outstanding work that underlines the plight of the victims of crime and abuse of power who ought to be at the centre of the criminal justice system. It is a welcome initiative that will be valuable for all stakeholders in the justice system. Honble Justice Mr. Arjan K. Sikri Supreme Court of India The book is informative, exhaustive and presents a complete comparative study of Victimology and victims assistance in India and the other nations of the world.

....The book is a ‘Must Read’ for its thought provoking analysis and valuable insights.... Prof. K.T. Pandurangi Former Professor of Sanskrit, Bangalore University, Vice-Chairman & Hon. Director Dvaita Vedanta Foundation, Bangalore “In my many years of listening to people talk on religion, dialogue and harmony, I was rarely as inspired and impressed as I was with your thoughts. ... very balanced, insightful and lofty way of thinking and expression.” Prof. Ali Khwaja Chairman- Banjara Academy, Hon. Director- Helping Hand DESCRIPTION The purpose of the book is to present a holistic understanding of Hinduism, to analyze its dynamics and historical process, to remove misunderstandings about Hinduism and to capture the whole process of rediscovery of Hinduism from time to time. This is done in terms of a Gandhian perspective, viewing Hinduism as happy to co-exist with other religions and also respect them. The continuing relevance of Gandhiji’s perspective on Hinduism consists in asserting that the authentic view of Hinduism is to see it as a liberal, inclusive, pluralist and socially sensitive religion. The book demolishes several myths that caste system is intrinsic to Hinduism, that Hinduism is other-worldly and indifferent to economic development, that its assimilative nature is subject to hierarchy, that it is anti individual, that it is anti rational, that it is indifferent to ethics and so on. But the book goes beyond apologetics and presents the dynamic process of change as well as continuity in Hinduism, and its capacity to rediscover it values from time to time to be in tune with the times. The dynamics of Hinduism is presented in terms of three phases Classical, Bhakti Movements and Modern. The book also explores Hindu approach to economic and social development, found to be both humane and ecologically sustainable. Finally it seeks to analytically answer why religion has become a cause for conflict and identifies factors that would promote peace, pluralism and progress, offering a perspective of hope. The book illustrates its arguments with interesting anecdotes from the life stories of Sants and presents some of their highly poetic compositions. It uses a variety of sources including literature in Indian languages. It is addressed to everyone who is interested in Hinduism, as well as to scholars in social sciences and religion. CONTENTS What Is Hinduism? Basic Ideas, • Is Caste System Intrinsic to Hinduism? Demolishing a Myth, • Dynamics of Hinduism Continuity and Change, • Dynamics of Hinduism Classical Phase, • Dynamics of Hinduism Bhakti Movements, • Dynamics of Hinduism Modern Phase, • Hindu Approach to Development, • Future of Religion a Perspective of Hope ABOUT THE AUTHOR Prof. M V Nadkarni an economist by training and profession, has a deep interest in social sciences, religion and philosophy.

DESCRIPTION Swami Vivekananda one of the greatest sons of modern India, not only gave a revolutionary turn to our struggle for freedom but also suggested the principles for the reconstruction of future independent India. A careful study of his ideas and activities reveal that he was far ahead of his times and was an iconoclast in every arena. He was an ascetic but guided by reason, a Hindu saint but stood for a new religion with Islamic body and Vedantic brain, a patriot to whom Mother India was the goddess, a masiha of the masses who sought to place people of the lower-rung at the helm of national affairs, a preacher of love who asked his followers to fight against all injustices and intolerance. Unfortunately, independent India did not give any importance to his ideas. On the contrary, he was dubbed a revivalist, a reactionary, a counter-revolutionary, a Hindu chauvinist and an opponent of Islam and Christianity. The conservative Hindus were against his religious ideas, the aristocracy and the upper-castes were against the social order envisaged by him and the bourgeois class which had got the political power in its own hand was deadly against his socialist economy. As a result, Swami Vivekananda mostly remained not much known to the common masses. The study seeks to present before the readers an unbiased account of Vivekananda’s ideas, ideals and activities. CONTENTS Preface 1. Swami Vivekananda: The Man in the Making 2. Social Ideas 3. An Iconoclastic Ascetic 4. Swami Vivekananda: An Apostle of Harmony 5. A Passionate Patriot 6. Masiha of the Masses • Conclusion • Bibliography • Index. ABOUT THE AUTHOR The author of this book Dr. Ajeet Jawed is a Reader in Political Science Department of Satyawati College, University of Delhi. She is associated with both under-graduate and post-graduate teaching. In 1986 she was awarded degree of Doctor of Philosophy by the University of Delhi.

About the Book The product of painstaking, scholarly and systematic research undertaken in the late 1970s and early 1980s, this book provides a panoramic view of the dynamics of peasant struggles, land reforms and social change in Kerala in general and its northern part Malabar in particular. The author in this well-researched, empirically rich book, begins with the general proposition that land reforms were no liberal gifts from enlightened governments but have been historical processes necessitated by protracted peasant struggles. The detailed descriptive facts, the numerous tables and the data unearthed through strenuous fieldwork would stimulate further research into the questions raised in the book. In the Preface to this second edition of the book the author raises the puzzle of Keralas "depeasantization" since the 1980s shortly after the completion of the implementation of land reforms; and the deepening paradox of the "Kerala phenomenon". To understand these also in perspective by intelligent lay readers, interested academics, researchers, and policy makers, the book is an essential reading. Contents 1. Introduction; 2.

Work and Welfare in Europe Series Editors: Denis Bouget, University of Nantes, France; Jochen Clasen, University of Edinburgh, UK; Ana Guillen Rodriguez, University of Oviedo, Spain; Jane Lewis, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK; and Bruno Palier, Sciences Po Paris, France This book provies a cross-national European comparative analysis of the presence-and absence-of women on the board of directors of companies. The gender profile of this elite position is a key indicator of vertical segregation of employment. The relative standing of women on corporate boards and in top executive positions indicates women’s access to prestigious and influential’ top jobs’ and the extent of the gender gap in high level decision making in the economy. The volume includes both national and cross national levels of analysis. A suite of strategically selected national studies develops new empirical analysis of women’s presence on company boards, and the variation between different types of companies and board positions (executive and non-executive).
