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.

Norris, Christopher
Previous owner's signature on ffep.On 29 March 1991, shortly after the cessation of hostilities in the Gulf War, Jean Baudrillard published an article entitled "The Gulf War has not taken place", in which he argued that "the true belligerents are those who thrive on the ideology of the truth of this war". It is in response to such excesses of post-modernism that Christopher Norris has written this extended polemical essay. He argues that the extreme cognitive scepticism and relativism of this school of thought is profoundly disabling for critical theory. Reviewing the writings of Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard and Baudrillard, as well as the American neo-pragmatist school as represented by Rorty and Fish, he meticulously examines the flaws in their arguments, and makes an impassioned plea for the continuance of the philosopher's role as intellectual critic of real world politics and governments.218pp.

Fink, Paul M.
Beginning this volume with a chapter entitled "Prehistory," he goes on to chronicle the Indian troubles and other hardships suffered by those settling the frontier, their early government, development of trade and commerce, travel and the coming of the railroad, growth of churches and religion, as well as education and publications, and finally recording several pages of leftover bits of information under "Miscellany." His history of the oldest town in Tennessee was written in 1972, with financial aid through a Federal grant, and covers approximately the same period then under study for Jonesborough's preservation and restoration plans. In this "Second Edition", the original text remains intact, but more than one hundred photographs have been added along with a complete index. 203pp.N.B.Half inch closed tear to top left corner front d/j.

Edited By Eldridge,Bruce F. And Edman,John D.
This book is designed primarily as a textbook for graduate and postgraduate courses in Medical, Public Health and Veterinary Entomology. Its uniqueness is that its emphasis is on disease as opposed to arthropods. It includes general discussions of epidemiology, transmission, disease control, vector control and disease surveillance. In addition, it contains chapters oriented towards the many specific arthropod-borne diseases. Furthermore, the book discusses the many direct impacts that parasitic insects have on human and animal health. The arthropods themselves are dealt with in two introductory chapters. 659pp.

Sayler, James (editor)
While America's presidents hold great sway and command much attention during their terms of office, the measure of their historical impact often comes from what they write. The papers produced by each commander-in-chief helps to determine how history will remember him, since the writings provide first-hand accounts of the presidency. Mirroring the personality of the president, these writings vary from the pedestrian to the prolific. Little of note remains from the tenure of Zachary Taylor, while the products of the Nixon era continue to spark national debate. This book gives a listing of the major pieces of literature produced by each president, as well as an overview of researching presidential records. In providing an introductory bibliography, the book becomes an excellent starting point for anyone researching the presidency in general or a president in particular.
