Edited By Hagan, Kay Leigh
Women today are paying close attention to the men's movement as it radiates out from the US. Some of them like what they see and hope that men at home are coming to terms with the realities of true partnership and shared power, others are downright sceptical, complaining about the chorus of whining white men. Still others hold a deep-rooted fear that the men's movement has only legitimized a fashionable new form of woman-hating. This book looks at the men's movement, with contributions from women writers such as Nicole Hollander, Rosemary Radfors Ruether and Starhawk. By the author of "International Affairs: a Journalkeeping Workbook for Self-Intimacy" and "Habit of Freedom". 175pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Wertz, Dorothy C.; Fletcher, John C.
Dorothy Wertz and John Fletcher pioneered the first international study of ethical and social issues in genetics in 18 nations. This book reports and discusses their second and more representative study in 36 nations. The survey focused on actual situations that occur in the practice of medical genetics, presented as case vignettes that can also be used in teaching and policy discussion. Among the issues discussed are privacy, prenatal diagnosis, patient autonomy, directiveness in counseling, sex selection, forensic DNA banking, "genetic discrimination," and "eugenics". This is Dorothy Wertz's final book, as she died in April, 2003. It is a one of a kind cross-cultural study of complex ethical issues in the uses of genetic information. No one else has attempted to look at the international aspects of medical genetics on such a broad scale. The results provide a resource for discussion both within and among nations. Much bioethical and policy discussion now occurs in an information vacuum. The survey showed that what people would do, and their reasons for doing it, differed considerably from what ethicists think they "should" do. Many will be surprised at the results, especially in nations where bioethical discussion is just beginning. "Genetics and Ethics in Global Perspective" is of interest to medical geneticists, genetic counselors, social scientists and anthropologists who study cross-cultural issues, bioethicists and bioethics centers and health policy makers.474pp.

Smith, Patrick A.
Jim Harrison's fiction is diverse in its genres, protagonists, and settings: from novel to novella - from comically masculine rogue to the psychically scarred female - from wilderness to city. This study examines the metaphors Harrison uses to offer critical entrance into his fiction - food, place, ecological concerns, journey, "soul history," and region. Harrison's fiction contains the underlying currents of alienation and lost identity, and he uses these currents imbedded in modern life to explore the viability of the mythic quest and the American Dream. This study, the first full length critical analysis of Harrison's work, illuminates Harrison's diversity and range, placing him in the top echelon of contemporary American authors. Through personal association and a passionate attachment to Harrison's work, Patrick Smith uses close readings and contemporary literary theory to produce criticism that sketches the scope of Harrison's influence.
