Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This exposition of writer S. Y. Abramovitsh explores the symbolic importance of his central character, Mendele the Bookseller, and the history of Yiddish fiction in Russia during the nineteenth century.

Book News Annotation:

Contributors draw on feminist analysis of psychology to look at the assumptions which underlie both psychology and feminism, examining subjects such as sexual abuse; menstruation; feminist therapy; the regulation of mothering; the gendering of the caring professions; and women's safety. They explore themes of difference and power; the politics of research; the cultural maleness of psychological theory and teaching; and the relations between race and gender. Of interest to students in psychology, gender, and women's studies.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
