Women, Gender, and Politics brings together both classic and recent readings on central topics in the study of gender and politics, and places an emphasis on comparing developed and developing countries. Genuinely international in its focus, the book is divided into five sections to reflect the range of research in the subfield: (1) women and social movements, (2) women and political parties, (3) women, gender, and elections, (4) women, gender, and public policies, and (5) women, gender, and the state. Each section serves as an introduction to general trends in thinking about women and politics, and the readings capture the ways that research has developed both thematically and chronologically in all of the five broad areas. The volume>'s innovative design, global approach, and comprehensive coverage make it an ideal teaching book and a valuable resource for students and scholars throughout the world.

'The basic premise of this provocative book is a startling one - that sex ratios among people on the marriage market have profound consequences for a wide variety of attitudes, values, and behaviors, from sexual mores and behavior to shifts in economic power...the authors share with the reader a wealth of fascinating data and information...a book which is...fascinating, scholarly, provocative and exceedingly well-written.' -- Canadian Journal of Sociology, Vol 10 No 2 'Written by social scientists with training and considerable publication in social psychology, this book is a unique contribution to the literature on women, sex roles, and the history of relations between men and women. No similar book is available to the academic community.' -- Sociology, September//October 1983 'Here is a highly original contribution to the 'feminist debate' which should be of interest to demographers, whether male or female. A review can only give an indication of the many stimulating, well-documented ideas and arguments advanced.' -- Biology and Society, Vol 1 No 2, June 1984 'Too Many Women? is useful for courses on the family and social change but is a necessary reference for those interested in social changes in relationships. The argument is soundly convincing, the case artfully presented, and the book designed to generate considerable interest.' -- Family Relations, Vol 34 No 1 'This volume is well written...Bibliography and references are more than adequate. Useful as suggested or supplementary reading in undergraduate courses in sociology of the family, gender roles, or family studies.' -- Choice, December 1983 '...this is a book well worth reading. It is controversial, ambitious, consciousness-raising, and informative.' -- Contemporary Psychology, Vol 29 No 5, 1984 'this book should be read for the originality of its authors' ideas and the promise of their hypotheses.' -- Signs, Summer 1987.

Susan Hogan encourages us to work with women to explore the construction of their identity not only on a personal level, but also on a cultural [one]...Feminist writers challenge us to look not only at other practices in order to locate biases, but to look also within [our own field's] epistemology. American Journal of Art Therapy This is an accomplished, well-researched, well-referenced book on feminist art therapy...It has coherence; edges of definition touch and overlap, patterns of thought and experience are picked up and expressed in a different area, in different terminology, in phototherapy...It expresses the richness of texture that is feminism at work. Susan Hogan...locates art therapy, western-style, in its cultural context, as a cultural practice inextricably woven together with others. Inscape: Journal of the British Association of Art Therapists Most psychotherapies lack the depth of the sociological and anthropological explorations and debates that Hogan's stimulating books provoke...even psychologists very often do not adequately consider the race, class, gender, nationality, and even the age of their clients...Hogan is a scholar well-renowned for her bright and stirring work on such issues as the social construction of women's mental health and sexuality. .., the social/cultural representation of women in psychiatric discourse, and the socio-political dimension of women's lives. Here she has applied her remarkably lucid analytical methods and writing skills...Writing for an audience of students and scholars, Hogan demonstrates clarity in her presentation of theoretical issues. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art Therapy Art therapy has been slow to embrace the critical and theoretical viewpoints, including feminism, that have made a huge impact on other areas of the humanities and social sciences. Art therapists are ideally situated, however, to respond to the growing awareness of how language, media, and images influence gender inequality and the pressures that can lead to poor mental health, and diminished wellbeing, among women. The contributors explore the ways in which gender issues can be addressed through art therapy. By being sensitive to the socio-cultural dimensions of women's lives, therapists can become more receptive to the needs of their female clients. The case studies included here illustrate how issues of class, ethnicity, and gender introduce a social element into what is sometimes described as a purely personal, cathartic process. By discussing empowerment, sexuality, pregnancy, and childbirth, this volume provides a comprehensive survey of women's issues within art therapy and will prompt a re-evaluation of current training and practice in the field. Susan Hogan is Professor of Cultural Studies and Art Therapy at the University of Derby and an art therapist in private practice specializing in work with women. Her research focuses on the position of women within psychiatry and in women's experience of pregnancy and childbirth.

Depression is a problem faced by many people; research has shown that women compose the higher proportion of those identified as suffering from depression. Lives in Stress identifies what it is that depresses women and examines the stresses that impinge on their psychological well-being. 'Overall, Lives in Stress reflects a thorough, sensitive, and insightful research project, and the reader is left with the hope that this research group will find the support to continue its efforts.' -- Choice, September 1982 '...the richness of detailed observations and the extensive corroboration that is made with previous studies are striking. The references are excellent and especially important for those who would like to pursue the issues in depth.' -- Social Casework: The Journal of Contemporary Social Work, November 1982 '...a useful introduction to women's studies for its succinct restatements of current scholarship, its excellent bibliographies, and its stress on the need to look at women's problems in terms of the environment women inhabit.' -- The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Vol 466, March 1983 'There arises throughout the book a profound sense of gratitude for the sensitivity with which the project was approached, for recognition that whilst scientific detachment was needed, it could be interpreted with a knowledge of the depth of human need and a concern that participation of the mother involved should not add to their problems. Indeed, an outstanding feature of the whole study is the way in which mothers were allowed to express their own feelings and the effect of the research project itself on relationships. Many mothers actively enjoyed participation, were helped towards self-discovery and personal growth and thus the study itself acted as an important intervention process.' -- The Alliance News, November/December 1982 'Certainly all social work students and other members or future members of the "helping professions", including medical students, should read it. I would love to force the entire Reagan cabinet to read it and think of how much good the funds they want for one missile could do for these forty-three families.' -- Contemporary Sociology, Vol 12 No 6, November 1983 'This book would be a useful supplement to courses in women's studies or courses dealing with issues of poverty and mental health...each chapter includes a sizable reference list, which helps to make the book a valuable resource tool for researchers and students.' -- Sex Roles, Vol 9 No 11, 1983 'Overall, I found this book interesting, and well written...Lives in Stress makes it easier to understand and explain the stress experienced by women in poverty...' -- Journal of Gerontology, Vol 39 No 1, January 1984 '...with excellent literature reviews and effective presentation of the study results, the volume forms an excellent summary of research in the field...The book would serve well as a teaching resource for graduate or advanced undergraduate courses on women and poverty.' -- Medical Anthropology Quarterly, Vol 15 No 4, August 1984 'This spare, incisive volume should be on the desk of everyone involved in the care and treatment of disadvantaged women and families.' -- American Institute of Stress.

This volume, a collection of essays by a number of high-profile personalities working in philosophy, literature, sociology, cinema, theatre, journalism and politics, covers a number of crucial developments in the field of French feminisms that have made a reassessment necessary. "Beyond French Feminisms" proposes to answer the question: what is new in French feminism at the beginning of the 21st century? The essays reflect the shift from the theoretical and philosophical approaches that characterized feminism in the 1980s to the more social and political questions of 2001. Topics include: the "parit?" and PACS debates, the France USA dialogue, the "multicultural" issues and the new trends in literature and film by women.
