Edited By Card, Claudia
"Adventures in Lesbian Philosophy" explores diverse positive understandings of "lesbian philosophy." Tangren Alexander and Joyce Trebilcot critique the dualisms and methods of traditional Euro-American philosophy and offer creative experiments in wisdom-seeking; Bat-Ami Bar On and Lorena Leigh Saxe examine areas of contested sexual behaviors, such as pornography and sadomasochism; Elizabeth Deumer and Jacquelyn Zita take up the issue of constructing the meaning of "lesbian"; and Chris Cuomo, Barbara Houston, Ruthann Robson, Sarah Lucia Hoagland, and Kathleen Martindale and Martha Saunders discuss facets of lesbian community and responsibility. Special features include: Jacquelyn Zita's portrait of Jeffner Allen's creative lesbian philosophy, Mar'a Lugones' study of Gloria Anzald a's "Borderlands/La Frontera", Naomi Scheman's reflections on Jewish lesbian writing, and Ruth Ginzberg's interpretation of Audre Lorde's conception of eros. Editor Claudia Card has also included an up-to-date bibliography of lesbian philosophy and related works. 262pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Marcus,Jon
This is both an exciting history and a tour guide, illustrating the fascinating development of the lighthouses of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Long Island. Marcus and Kelly explain and show the technological evolution of lighthouses, the development of lights and lenses, the architecture of lighthouses, their construction and maintenance on remote sites, the life of the Lighthouse Service keepers, and the movement today to preserve and restore lights. Also included are excerpts from original logs and a descriptive tour of the last manned lighthouse in America, Boston Light, with its three resident Coast Guardsmen and their dog. The stunning photography includes intriguing images of lights in all kinds of weather -- plus photographs that bring readers inside the structures, showing the curling stairways, lenses, the keeper's homes, and more. A comprehensive appendix lists all the current New England lighthouses. 160pp.
