Woman: An Intimate Geography, Angier, Natalie
1 Angier, Natalie Woman: An Intimate Geography
Anchor 2000 0385498411 / 9780385498418 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. With the clarity, insight, and sheer exuberance of language that make her o ne of The New York Times's premier stylists, Pulitzer Prize-winner Natalie Angier lifts the veil of secrecy from that most enigmatic of evolutionary m asterpieces, the female body. Angier takes readers on a mesmerizing tour of female anatomy and physiology that explores everything from organs to orga sm, and delves into topics such as exercise, menopause, and the mysterious properties of breast milk. A self-proclaimed "scientific fantasia of womanhood." Woman ultimately chal lenges widely accepted Darwinian-based gender stereotypes. Angier shows how cultural biases have influenced research in evolutionary psychology (the s tudy of the biological bases of behavior) and consequently lead to dubious conclusions about "female nature." such as the idea that women are innately monogamous while men are natural philanderers. But Angier doesn't just point fingers; she offers optimistic alternatives and transcends feminist polemics with an enlightened subversiveness that makes for a joyful, fresh vision of womanhood. Woman is a seminal work that will endure as an essential read for anyone intersted in how biology affects who we are?as women, as men, and as human beings.

10 O'Connor, Karen Addicted to Shopping and Other Issues Women Have with Money
Harvest House Publishers 2005 0736915559 / 9780736915557 Paperback Very Good 
Born to shop. A woman's place is in the mall. We laugh at the stereotype of woman shoppers, but the reality is that millions of women struggle with ha ndling money. With compassion and understanding, Karen O'Connor helps women evaluate their spending habits through questions that include: Does spending money make you feel better? Do you shop when you're under stress? Do you dread having your money-handling habits exposed? From excessive shopping to penny-pinching, from splurging to refusing to bu y necessities, Karen explores the reasons behind the misuse of money. Then, drawing on her experiences and biblical insights, she reveals practical st rategies readers can use to develop a healthy view of money and regain cont rol of their spending. Editorial Reviews About the Author Karen O'Connor is a sought-after speaker, writing consultant, and the award-winning author of 75 books, including Gettin' Old Ain't for Wimps (more than 300,000 copies sold). She's appeared on national media, including The 700 Club and 100 Huntley Street.

Women and Marriage in Nineteenth Century England, Perkin, Joan
11 Perkin, Joan Women and Marriage in Nineteenth Century England
Lyceum Books 1989 0925065161 / 9780925065162 Paperback Near Fine 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: The 'bonds of matrimony' describes with cruel precision the social and political status of married women in the nineteenth century. Women of all classes had only the most limited rights of possession in their own bodies and property yet, as this remarkable book shows, women of all classes found room to manoeuvre within the narrow limits imposed on them. Upper-class women frequently circumvented the onerous limitations of the law, while middle-class women sought through reform to change their legal status. For working-class women, such legal changes were irrelevant, but they too found ways to ameliorate their position. Joan Perkin demonstrates clearly in this outstanding book, full of human insights, that women were not content to remain inferior or subservient to men.

16 Shostak, Marjorie Nisa: The Life and Words of a Kung Woman

In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. Married at twelve, then separated, divorced and widowed, Nisa is the mother of four children, none of whom survived. She is strong, capable of foraging on her own in one of the world's most hostile environments, not dependent on any man for her daily sustenance and ready to talk to anyone as her equal. Wise, full of humour at the absurdities of life and courageous in the face of its defeats, she is bawdy, practical and incurably romantic. She is a woman of the !Khung people who live by means of humanity's oldest survival strategy - gathering and hunting. This book is the remarkable story of Nisa's life, told in her own words to Marjorie Shostak. It is a story full of echoes from a female past that we can never know directly. But it is also Nisa's unique story, her own voice, her own dignity. In anyone's culture, she is a remarkable woman.

The book describes the lack of attention to women's human rights and civil liberties at all levels, outlines what has been done so far to articulate and defend them, and proposes a plan of action.
