Mitchell, C. R.
An examination of human behaviour within the framework of conflict, in which the author attempts to answer questions pertaining to conflict by examining common structures and processes found in human conflicts in many settings. He demonstrates how such common features reveal themselves in conflicts as ostensibly different as international war and interpersonal disagreements in organizations. Ideas and insights are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including political science, international relations, social psychology and the sociology of conflict and are combined in a framework that provides a guide to the genesis and course of contemporary disputes, whether between states, communities, classes or families. Particular emphasis is laid upon the complex and interlocking structure of conflicts and the way in which internal differences affect the ability of adversaries to prosecute a conflict successfully, or conclude a compromise peace satisfactorily. Attention is also directed towards the psychology of "being in conflict" and how this affects the adversaries view of others, the behaviour used in this conflict and the range of outcomes considered feasible and acceptable. The study also attempts to deal with the problems of peacemaking for third parties and analyzes the type of actions open to potential intermediaries attempting to end or manage disruptive disputes. 355pp. N.B.

Duchen, Claire
Women's Rights and Women's Lives In France explores the everyday experiences of women between the liberation, and May 1968. In 1945, French women believed that a new era was beginning for them, in which they had finally won equality (the right to vote in 1944, equal pay and access to education and employment). But the new Republic considered that women's main role was that of motherhood. Competing visions of women's place had concrete implications for women's lives, influencing work, politics and ideals of femininity. Working from a wide range of sources, including women's magazines, prescriptive literature, political pamphlets, fiction and memoirs, and government reports, Claire Duchen follows the debates concerning women through twenty years, and grounds them in the changing social reality of postwar France. 253pp. N.B.

Banerjee,Sumanta
Taking its title from Karl Marx's description of religion as 'the general theory of this world...[and] its logic in a popular form', this volume of essays explores the hidden logic behind the popular construction of certain myths, beliefs about godlings and spirits, and cross-religious cults, viewing them as popular inventions attempting to make sense of human existence in the face of an overwhelming and often hostile environment. These religious manifestations of popular logic are fluid, ever-changing, and always innovative. They represent an alternative stream running parallel to, and often challenging, the more strictly structured beliefs and practices of the Indian religious establishments, whether Hindu, Islamic or Christian. The essays in this book are an attempt to rediscover some of the important aspects of this multi-faceted phenomenon of popular religion in the context of nineteenth-century Bengal, including tracing the impact of urbanisation, colonialism, and nationalism. 233pp.Tail of spine dented ,slight marking to boards,corners bumped.
