"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.

Edited By Cremades,Bernardo M.
This text contains the papers presented at the 1998 Vancouver IBA Conference. The leading experts in international commercial arbitration presented their point of view from their respective countries on the situation of arbitration in Latin America. They reached the conclusion that international commercial arbitration in Latin American countries is in a state of good health, after analyzing: the general ratification of the international arbitration regulatory conventions; the legislative amendments enacted in the different parliaments; and the judicial activity in Latin American countries, in which case law, with its inevitable surprises, follows the lines of the best case law in countries familiar with arbitration. Many ad hoc arbitrations are being held, but, above all, the statistics from the arbitration administrative institutions demonstrate the importance of arbitration in Latin America. The usage of bi- or multilateral treaties of international public law to protect investments, as a basis for setting up the arbitral proceedings for international private law, confirms the prosperity of arbitral proceedings in Latin America.120pp.

Ben-Zion, Sigalit
Tiny tear on bottom of d/j spine.The challenge of this book has been to rethink prevailing ideas about the social map of Jewish society during the rabbinic period in Israel. New insights were made possible by using anthropological theories and tools. The book explores the rich and complex relationships among the sages, priests, and laymen who competed in social, cultural, and political arenas for hegemony. It demonstrates that this struggle was not a simple case of displacement of the priestly elite by a new scholarly elite.In the process of constituting a counter-hegemony of the sages, there was a complex push-pull process: attraction-rejection, imitation-denial, and co-operation-confrontation. They undermined the old order by using the old hegemonic priestly discourse. Whereas the sages proposed a new order based on intellectual achievement, they nevertheless created on top of the earlier hegemonic order a new order of group nepotism, endogamy, ritual purity, and secret knowledge and education provided only to the proper social classes. Ben-Zion concludes that even in the process of resistance and disengagement from the priestly hegemony, the sages could not free themselves from the bondage of the priestly discourse and praxis. 349pp.N.B.Quarter inch closed tear to base of d/j spine.
