Donaldson, Laura E.
Perhaps the greatest challenge to feminism in recent decades has emerged from the Black or Third World women's movement, which charges that the work of White middle-class feminists is often complicit with the agendas of White supremacy and Anglo-Saxon imperialism. In "Decolonializing Feminisms" Laura Donaldson's analysis aims to show how the oppositional stances of `First' versus `Third' world, and `traditional' versus `postmodern' feminists, can be brought into a more supportive relationship. Donaldson places contemporary theoretical debates about reading, writing, and the politics of identity, within the context of historical colonialism. Her readings of the work of Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte, and such films as "A Passage to India", reveal the subtle inter-relationships of gender, race, class, religion and sexual practice. 175pp. N.B.

Greer (editor); Forbes (editor); Turpie, A. G. (editor)
Complications due to bleeding and thrombosis are associated with many of the major clinical problems faced in obstetric and gynaecological practice. This book provides a comprehensive review of these problems by an international panel of authors active in clinical practice, teaching and research in their topics. The book deals with the physiology of haemostasis and blood rheology in general, the changes seen in normal pregnancy and the development of the coagulation system in the foetus. Obstetric and gynaecological haemorrhage is reviewed both from the viewpoint of the clinical obstetrician and gynaecologist, and the haematologist. The epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of thrombosis in pregnancy is dealt with over several chapters. These highlight the problems peculiar to the pregnant situation and their management, such as the effects of anticoagulants on the fetus and the often neglected area of the longterm outcome for women suffering from venous thromboembolism in association with pregnancy. Congenital and acquired disorders of haemostasis and thrombosis in relation to gynaecological practice, the pregnant situation, and the foetus and neonate, including prenatal diagnosis, are examined, providing information and experience of the management of these problems. Also covered is the common problem of menorrhagia and the relationship between the oral contraception pill and hormone replacement therapy and thrombosis. 573pp.

Ree, Jonathan
The stunning debut of Jonathan Ree, the Simon Schama of philosophy. 'I See A Voice is a joy to read: bold, crisp in style, effortlessly erudite, slyly humorous, passionate and humane.' Roy Porter, Independent 'Ree writes with such clarity and elegance that his prose is a pleasure to read. His exploration of the world of the deaf demonstrates that their tragic deprivation of one sense illumines our understanding of the others. His study of sign language gives us unparalleled insight into the nature of spoken language! this book is not only a fascinating history of the belated correction of our misperceptions of the deaf, but a demonstration that philosophy really can advance our understanding of the world and ourselves.' Anthony Storr, Literary Review 'Some philosophers take difficulty and try to make it simple, but Ree takes what is apparently mundane and undeniably everyday and makes it hard and wonderful. Reading his book, I had to sit at a table, with a pen and notebook, jotting down things I had never thought about before -- asking myself how it was that I had lived with this commonsense all my life, yet never been in possession of its meanings! Ree treats philosophy the way Adam Phillips treats psychoanalysis: he scrutinises the everyday and the commonplace and charges them with significance. Psychoanalysis and the writings of Freud flood into his text, along with the poetry of Wordsworth, the writings of Proust, his own poignant memories of things past. The melancholy richness of his writing soaks up the culture of the late twentieth century: its emphasis on subjectivity and uncertainity; its sense of the individual; its receptivity to other forms; its confessionalism and belief in self scrutiny! in his passionate, fascinating philosophical history of language, deafness and the senses.' 399pp. N.B.
