Kelley, Emma Dunham
This novel, which was very popular when published in 1891, tells the story of the conversion experiences of a group of young, middle-class Baptist women and their subsequent - or consequent - marriages. In it, racial issues are only indirectly addressed, gentility is a concern ranking second only to salvation, and humility and obedience are prerequisites to a woman's acceptance by the Christian community. In essence, this is a novel of socialization rather than of social protest.

Anderson, Karen
In this highly original volume of social history, Karen Anderson makes a provocative claim: the subjugation of women in seventeenth-century New France was linked with the brutal colonization of native Indian populations. Before colonization, the Huron and Montagnais tribes lived in gender-egalitarian societies. The domination of women by men was only one effect of French "civilization"--along with warfare, disease, famine and Jesuit proselytization--which combined to destroy Indian culture and sexual equality. Anderson's is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, feminist case study of the historical and political construction of gender and racial inequality. 247pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine. Underlining and annotation throughout. Previous price sticker on ffep.

Reichman-Israelsown, Raymond
In search of the panacea to every ill, The Mind of God takes us on a journey towards the reduction of all questions, and all answers, to one. The universal common denominator - the one without a second, the Kingdom of God - the finding of which will 'add all else' unto us. The author tackles the 'impossible' task of describing the infinite with finite tools - words. He deals with the dilemma of transcending the limitation of words in an effort at expressing the inexpressible, the ineffable, the silence. Within transcendental meditation the word is rendered unnecessary. But words are needed to describe the ladder to reach the transcendent. The book seeks to reconcile the paradox of intellectual and physical work and effortless intuitive revelation and mystical creative realisation. The deepest and most meaningful of expressions do not lie in words, but in the pregnant omniscient infinity between words. The paradox of communication at this level is the necessity to use words to describe the 'wordless.' Exploring reality, creation and the fall of man, man emerges as an expression of God. The Path is the sum of all paths. All religions or spiritual paths lead us Home to Self-Realisation. 182pp.
