Sylvester, Christine
This book evaluates the major debates around which the discipline of international relations has developed in the light of contemporary feminist theories. The three debates (realist versus idealist, scientific versus traditional, modernist versus postmodernist) have been subject to feminist theorising since the earliest days of known feminist activities, with the current emphasis on feminist, empiricist standpoint and postmodernist ways of knowing. Christine Sylvester shows how feminist theorising could have affected our understanding of international relations had it been included in the three debates. She elaborates a feminist method of empathetically cooperative conversation which challenges the identity politics of IR, and illustrates that method with reference to the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp and the efforts of Zimbabwean women to negotiate international funding for their local producer cooperatives. 265pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners slightly rubbed.

Walters, Kerry S.
Against the religious backdrop of pre- and postcolonial America stands the towering figure - and mind - of Benjamin Franklin. A Renaissance man in a Revolutionary time, Franklin had interests and knowledge not only in religion but in literature, philosophy, politics, publishing, history, and scientific inquiry, among many other disciplines. Kerry S. Walters examines Franklin's search for the Divine using a similar, multifaceted approach - and in so doing has created the first extended treatment of Franklin's religious thought in thirty years. Walters brings the same intellectual range and depth to the understanding of Franklin's beliefs that Franklin brought to his own quest. What emerges from this pilgrimage into the soul of one of America's greatest figures is a very human Benjamin Franklin who grew with the accumulation of knowledge to arrive at a 'theistic perspectivism', which provided him with a philosophical explanation for the diversity of religious faiths - and a justification for the liberty of conscience he advocated throughout his life. "Benjamin Franklin and His Gods" is an original and beautifully challenging spiritual and intellectual biography. It is destined to be a classic. 213pp. N.B. Fading to spine and spine edge of rear cover. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Jozwik, F. X. And Gist, J. M.
Does life have purpose and meaning? This question is a fount of anxiety that plagues mankind. No one has yet provided a definitive and believable answer that will allow humans to live in mental harmony. "Angst and Evolution" is a pragmatic investigation into life. It attempts to reveal and make sense of the struggle for human potential. Evidence is gathered and synthesised from the scientific, mythic, literary and cultural experience gained by our presence on planet Earth. 224pp.
