Munro-Cook, Georgia, Building the WNBA: From "Dunking Divas" to Political Leaders. (New Femininities in Digital, Physical and Sporting Cultures) 240 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-990>
ISBN 978-3-031-53113-2 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA), exploring the role of gender, race, and sexuality in the continuing growth of the league. As the longest running and most successful professional women's sporting league in the United States, the WNBA has evolved into a politically important force both inside and outside the sporting world. Drawing on a variety of research methods, including ethnography, media and literary analysis, and archival research, the book argues that it is its players' dedication and commitment to ensuring a sustainable league that has enabled the WNBA to survive in spite of an American sporting landscape that is otherwise hostile to women. As such, It will be of interest to academics and students working or studying in the fields of sports sociology, sports management, feminist theory, sports history, and gender studies.

Gabriel, Christina / Rankin, L. Pauline (eds.), Counting Matters: Policy, Practice, and the Limits of Gender Equality Measurement in Canada. 304 pp. 2024:4 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-659>
ISBN 978-0-7748-7016-0 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00

Counting Matters examines the ways in which the rise of gender equality measurement contributes to, but falls short of, effective gender equality policy implementation.As technocrats adopt often contextless indices, questions of the theoretical and practical limitations of measurement arise, especially as they pertain to social and cultural relations.The indicators being produced influence the allocation of resources as political decisions but are themselves part of a power regime based on the collection and analysis of data, a regime that obfuscates biases and the agendas behind the statistics.The book's contributors pose critical questions of the ways in which measurement culture manifests within the field of gender equality, asking how it is measured in different policy areas, how we might improve existing practices, and what is revealed through the examination and critique of the "technical turn" in policies that purport to promote gender equality.

Godzisz, Piotr, State Responses to Anti-LGBT Violence: Poland in a European Context. (Global Queer Politics) 316 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-670>
ISBN 978-3-031-53800-1 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book offers a much-needed analysis of the difficulties associated with providing state protection from violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Europe. Focusing on Poland as a national case study, encompassed in the broader European context, the book provides a holistic analysis of internal and external factors influencing state-level policy outcomes. By focusing on hate crime advocacy and carefully dissecting it from the rest of the LGBT rights "package," the book fills a gap in queer scholarship, which has overlooked this aspect of mobilisation. The book also examines the emerging international standards and provides a comparative analysis of national laws, policies and practices on anti-LGBT hate crime across Europe. Highlighting variance in outcomes in different areas of LGBT rights, this book considers the role of lesser-known actors and mechanisms who are key in enacting critical policy changes. State Responses to Anti-LGBT Violence provides a critical reflection on the complicated relationships between queer communities and the state.

Ng, Sandy, Portrayals of Women in Early Twentieth-Century China: Redefining Female Identity through Modern Design and Lifestyle. 164 pp. 2024:4 (Amsterdam U. Pr., NE) <722-775>
ISBN 978-94-6298-891-0 hard ¥26,716.- (税込) GB£ 96.00

Portrayals of Women in Early Twentieth-Century China explores the role played by woman, and their visual representations, in introducing modern design and modern ways of living to China. It investigates this through an analysis of how women and modern design were represented in the advertisements, photographs, and films of Republican-era China. This study explores the intersection of modernity and the Chinese woman, as they negotiated their changing identities through, and with, new designs that proliferated in Chinese households in the first half of the twentieth century. The advertisements, mass media, photographs and films took on the function of social conditioning, conveying to the viewers ideas of modern social standards, behavior and appearances. With women both instrumentalised within these images, and addressed through them, their visual representations became metaphors that fashioned a new portrait of China, while concurrently impacting on the identity, agency and subjectivity of women themselves.

Pan, Yihong, Not Just a Man's War: Chinese Women's Memories of the War of Resistance against Japan, 1931-45. (Contemporary Chinese Studies) 272 pp. 2024:7 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-776>
ISBN 978-0-7748-7035-1 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00

In 1931, Japan began a brutal occupation of Manchuria, and in 1937, China and Japan entered a full-scale war that ended with Japan's defeat in 1945. The War of Resistance became the Chinese experience of the Second World War. Yet women scarcely get a mention in most accounts of the fourteen-year conflict. Through interviews, published reminiscences, and oral histories, Not Just a Man's War uncovers the extraordinary stories of ordinary Chinese women during the war. Communist women speak of fighting as soldiers for "a good war" and contributing to the party's rise to power. Nationalist women attribute their survival to the strength of the human spirit while acknowledging tremendous suffering. Women from the working poor and the middle classes describe the hardships of Japanese aggression, and victims of sexual violence speak up. Although the women rarely speak of feminism, they demonstrate a striking autonomy regardless of political association, socioeconomic status, or education. By attending to their insights, Not Just a Man's War produces a multifaceted, inclusive narrative of China's War of Resistance.

Okyere-Manu, Beatrice / Lushombo, Leocadie (eds.), African Women's Liberating Philosophies, Theologies, and Ethics. 306 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-56>
ISBN 978-3-031-39132-3 hard ¥35,141.- (税込) EUR 149.99

This volume explores the ethical and philosophical paradigms presented by most of the influential Matriarchs of the Circle of African Women Theologians. It critically evaluates the effectiveness of their ethical and philosophical theories, models, and frameworks in pursuing justice and liberation for women in Africa and globally. The authors address critical questions: How have African women theologians reimagined existing ethical paradigms? What original ethical and philosophical ideas have they generated? How have their ethical frameworks influenced the theologies and interpretations they have developed? What purposes do their ethical and philosophical paradigms serve? How do these renderings intersect with various social categories, including gender, race, class, sexuality, capitalism, and colonialism? What liberating frameworks do they propose? The volume further explores the dialogue between distinct African contexts and universal experiences and values. It explores how universal themes such as humanity, human dignity, rights, justice, motherhood, and more can coexist with communal African concepts and themes. It contemplates how embracing African approaches engages these themes more globally, bringing together particular African contexts of women and the universal ethical, philosophical, and theological theories, models, and frameworks to advance the cause of justice and liberation for African women and women worldwide into the future.

Curwood, Anastasia C., Shirley Chisholm: Champion of Black Feminist Power Politics. 472 pp. 2023:1 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) * paper 2024:4 <722-640>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7117-8 hard ¥7,761.- (税込) US$ 36.00
ISBN 978-1-4696-8315-7 paper ¥5,174.- (税込) US$ 24.00

Shaking up New York and national politics by becoming the first African American congresswoman and, later, the first Black major-party presidential candidate, Shirley Chisholm left an indelible mark as an "unbought and unbossed" firebrand and a leader in politics for meaningful change. After spending her formative years between Barbados and Brooklyn, Chisholm's political orientation and power did not follow the standard narratives of the civil rights or feminist establishments. Rather, Chisholm arrived at her Black feminism on her own path, making signature contributions to U.S. politics as an inventor and practitioner of Black feminist power-the vantage point centering Black girls and women in the movement that sought to transform political power into a broadly democratic force.Anastasia C. Curwood interweaves Chisholm's public image, political commitments, and private experiences to create a definitive account of a consequential life. In so doing, Curwood suggests new truths for understanding the social movements of Chisholm's time and the opportunities she forged for herself through multicultural, multigenerational, and cross-gender coalition building.

L.-P.Rochon他編 中央銀行業、金融政策、ジェンダー
Rochon, Louis-Philippe / Kappes, Sylvio / Vallet, G. (eds.), Central Banking, Monetary Policy and Gender. (The Elgar Series on Central Banking and Monetary Policy) 252 pp. 2024:5 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-220>
ISBN 978-1-80392-790-9 hard ¥26,438.- (税込) GB£ 95.00

Central Banking, Monetary Policy and Gender uniquely explores the ways in which monetary policies, changes in interest rates and unconventional monetary strategies such as quantitative easing affect women. This groundbreaking book analyses the inner organisation of central banks, considering for the first time how banking transmission mechanisms operate in relation to gender, investigating issues of power, income, wealth inequality and labour market dynamics.Editors Louis-Philippe Rochon, Sylvio Kappes and Guillaume Vallet bring together internationally renowned scholars to present cutting-edge research. Chapters discuss the role of monetary policy in the gender pension gap; the impact of inflation reduction policies on female and male employment rates; the gender politics of comportment in central banking; the inner organisation of central banks and how financial crises can create systemic discrimination. Contributors advocate for looking beyond the traditional roles of central banks, encouraging scholars and practitioners to assess strategies and frameworks from alternative perspectives such as gender to highlight systemic inequalities and campaign for better, more equitable practices going forward.Offering a novel approach to central banking and monetary policy, this book will be invaluable to academics, students and researchers in political economy, feminist economics, and public policy. Its practical and timely guidance will also be of interest to professionals working in the banking, economic and financial sectors.

職場におけるジェンダーの不平等の形成と破壊
Roennmar, Mia / Hayter, Susan (eds.), Making and Breaking Gender Inequalities in Work. (ILERA Publication) 208 pp. 2024:6 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-256>
ISBN 978-1-03-533746-0 hard ¥26,438.- (税込) GB£ 95.00

This timely book expertly analyses the persistence of gender inequalities in work. Despite the progress made through frameworks regulating work and employment relations, the COVID-19 pandemic exposed and exacerbated gender divides in labour markets. The authors present innovative ways to promote gender equality in a variety of industrial relations systems, welfare state models and labour market sectors.Making and Breaking Gender Inequalities in Work offers a rich, global and comparative study of this critical topic, addressing developments in formal and informal economies in countries with different levels of economic development. Mia Roennmar and Susan Hayter have carefully selected expert contributors who apply an interdisciplinary approach and combine a range of theories and methodologies to provide fresh insights on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, and on how to tackle gender inequalities in areas such as work-life balance, equality law, global value chains and collective bargaining.Illustrating the key issues in the subject, this book is an excellent resource for academic researchers and scholars in the fields of industrial relations, work and employment relations, gender studies and equality, labour and international law. Policymakers and employers' and workers' organizations at the national, regional and international levels will also find the analysis informative and enlightening.

Rivkin-Fish, Michele, Unmaking Russia's Abortion Culture: Family Planning and the Struggle for a Liberal Biopolitics. (Policy to Practice) 388 pp. 2024:6 (Vanderbilt U. Pr., US) <722-279>
ISBN 978-0-8265-0697-9 hard ¥25,861.- (税込) US$ 119.95
ISBN 978-0-8265-0696-2 paper ¥8,613.- (税込) US$ 39.95

As the predominant form of birth control in Soviet society, abortion reflected key paradoxes of state socialism: women held formal equality but lacked basic needs such as contraceptives. With market reforms, Russians enjoyed new access to Western contraceptives and new pressures to postpone childbearing until economically self-sufficient. But habits of family planning did not emerge automatically-they required extensive physician retraining, public education, and cultural transformation. In Unmaking Russia's Abortion Culture,Rivkin-Fish examines the creative strategies of Russians who promoted family planning in place of routine abortion. Rather than emphasizing individual rights, they explained family planning's benefits to the nation-its potential to strengthen families and prevent the secondary sterility that resulted when women underwent repeat, poor quality abortions. Still, fierce debates about abortion and contraceptives erupted as declining fertility was framed as threatening Russia's demographic sovereignty. Although Russian family planners embraced a culturally meaningful liberalism that would rationalize public policy and re-enchant relations, nationalist opponents cast family planning as suspicious for its association with the individualistic, "child-free" West. This book tells the story of how Russian family planners developed culturally salient frameworks to promote the acceptability of contraceptives and help end routine abortion. It also documents how nationalist campaigns for higher fertility worked to de-fund family planning and ultimately dismantle its institutions. By tracing these processes, Unmaking Russia's Abortion Culture demonstrates the central importance of reproductive politics in the struggle for liberalizing social change that preceded Russia's 2022 descent into war, repression, and global marginalization.

Lackner, Martina, Breaking Free from the Chains of Role Ascriptions: From Female Powerlessness to Powerful Solutions in Career, Partnership and Family. 164 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <722-371>
ISBN 978-3-658-43838-8 hard ¥8,900.- (税込) EUR 37.99

This book is no standard guide on ordinary women's topics. It relentlessly reflects on what slows down women's personal development regarding relationship, family and work - with razor-sharp analyses of hidden interactions and traumas. This book enables women to become aware of existing traps and obstacles, fears, feelings of guilt and other deep-seated emotions to help them leave behind restricting role attributions while power-balancing their lives between partner, children and career.Women often consider themselves as the patriarchy's victims. Instead, the author identifies the fact that they lack awareness of their own power and the willingness to recognize it, the fact that women often neither admit nor accept their own power, as the prime reason why women remain stuck in traditional role models - for equality would require their powerful sovereignty. This book offers solutions to seemingly difficult situations, and experienced women leaders have their say. The recommendations on how to set a decisive course on the path to female empowerment leave readers with no room to retreat and hide behind familiar and often practiced counterarguments: This book encourages self-reflection as well as public discussion.The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence. A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content.

Dumbili, Emeka W., Reconfiguring Drinking Cultures, Gender, and Transgressive Selves. (Genders and Sexualities in the Social Sciences) 321 pp. 2024:4 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-1014>
ISBN 978-3-031-53317-4 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book presents an in-depth analysis of young people's experiences of diverse drinking practices, including heavy drinking and drunkenness, as fun and pleasurable as they navigate gendered leisure spaces. Using qualitative data elicited through semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions, the analysis engages with theories and concepts of culture, gender, and transgression to foreground the roles that socio-cultural and material elements and human agency play in shaping alcohol consumption in contemporary Nigeria. It focuses on the enactment of hyper-heterosexual and alternative masculinities and the reconfigurations of passive and non-passive femininities through drinking practices. It also interrogates how and why multinational alcohol companies are targeting Nigerian women and youths and the extent to which their activities are contributing to changing gendered drinking and sexual practices, which are at odds with the extant local norms that promote abstinence, moderation among adults, and sexual purity among unmarried youths. Importantly, this book moves beyond solely Western theorizing by drawing on both Western and non-Western gender theories to analyze how contemporary Nigerian young men and women 'do' masculinity and femininity with alcohol and will be a valuable resource for social scientists, students, policymakers, practitioners, and the general public interested in youth drinking behaviours, multinational alcohol companies' activities, and decolonizing gender scholarship.

Clark, Chandra Snell, Twentieth Century Frontierswoman: A Rhetorical Biography of Almena Davis Lomax, Journalist. (Studies in Communication, Culture, Race, and Religion 4) 284 pp. 2024:2 (P. Lang, SZ) <722-1050>
ISBN 978-1-4331-9807-6 hard ¥31,218.- (税込) SFR 129.00
ISBN 978-1-4331-9806-9 paper ¥12,100.- (税込) SFR 50.00

This rhetorical biography illustrates the manner in which African American woman newspaper publisher and journalist Almena Davis Lomax sought to persuade her readers of her civil rights vision?through her Los Angeles Tribune editorials, columns, and other writings?from the 1940s through the mid-1970s, a period that witnessed phenomenal change in the area of civil rights for African Americans and other oppressed groups in the United States.  While African American women journalists' contributions to the United States' long civil rights struggle via their writings and speeches?particularly those of the late nineteenth, early twentieth century and late twentieth century?have received greater attention in recent years, there is yet much to glean from the Black women journalists who built upon the path set by journalist-activist foremothers such as Mara W. Stewart, Mary Ann Shadd Cary, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Anna Julia Cooper and others?African American women journalists of the mid-twentieth century. This project contributes to the larger discourse on race, rhetoric and media by recovering the work of a little-known African American newspaper publisher and journalist of this era, thus adding to the body of knowledge concerning an often-overlooked group for not only journalism, media, communication, history, African American studies and women’s studies scholars, but also for any reader with an interest in these areas.

Strassfeld, Ben, Indecent Detroit: Race, Sex, and Censorship in the Motor City. 344 pp. 2023:12 (Indiana U. Pr., US) <722-1065>
ISBN 978-0-253-06783-8 hard ¥19,404.- (税込) US$ 90.00
ISBN 978-0-253-06784-5 paper ¥8,192.- (税込) US$ 38.00

While Detroit has been a major focus in urban history, little has been written on censorship in the very city that-due to shifting legalities, the urban crisis, and racial tensions-profoundly shaped media suppression in the United States. By examining censorship in film and literature, Indecent Detroit recounts the evolution of media control from the end of WWII through the 1970s, when the US saw a major change in the legal mechanisms used to censor media due to court rulings that curtailed censorship laws. Ben Strassfeld reveals how Detroit altered its censorial tactics and rhetoric from an obscenity-based system of censorship centered in the Detroit Police Department to a regulatory model based in zoning law that was then expanded nationwide. This shift was connected to broader social and political trends, including the sexual revolution, that led the public to increasingly turn against censorship. A must-read for film and media scholars, Indecent Detroit highlights how one Midwest city's ordinance was imitated across the country after it was upheld by the US Supreme Court, making this more than a local curiosity but also an influential model for the cultural, political, and moral control of urban space through media regulation.

Ferdous, Jannatul, Gendered Migrations: Navigating Challenges and Opportunities for Development. (International Perspectives on Migration) 138 pp. 2024:3 (Springer, GW) <722-1098>
ISBN 978-981-9704-43-9 hard ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99

This book delves into the multifaceted interplay between gender, migration, and development. It challenges conventional theories by sharing the unique experiences of migrants, particularly women, and their profound impact on development in the global South. It contributes significantly to the theory of intersectionality, which illuminates how various forms of oppression and privilege intertwine to shape individuals' experiences. It ventures beyond traditional boundaries, recognizing migration and development as transnational processes that transcend singular actors and spaces.

Mahn, Churnjeet / Dasgupta, Rohit K. / Ritu, DJ, Desi Queers: LGBTQ+ South Asians and Cultural Belonging in Britain. 280 pp. 2024:11 (Hurst, UK) <722-1115>
ISBN 978-1-911723-64-6 paper ¥5,006.- (税込) GB£ 17.99

Desi Queers reveals how diasporic South Asians have shaped LGBTQ+ movements and communities in Britain, from the 1970s to the present day. Weaving the history of 1980s anti-racism with the emergence of Black LGBTQ+ and feminist coalitions, this book highlights landmark moments in British queer life and culture through South Asian lives, and illuminates British histories of colour through queer politics and creativity. From the Gay Black Group to Haringey Council's pioneering Lesbian and Gay Unit, desi queers were at the centre of anti-homophobic direct action in the 1980s, including the historic 'Smash the Backlash' demo against bigotry. This activism birthed key grassroots groups of the 1980s and 1990s, such as Shakti and Naz, whose founders and early members opened a path of creative resistance to the intersecting violence of racism and homophobia--a path of solidarity echoing through the twenty-first century. These spaces and networks have been a refuge for people doubly marginalised in Britain--by experiences of homophobia within South Asian communities, and by the whiteness of mainstream queer scenes. Drawing on artistic creations, archives and oral history, Desi Queers celebrates rich traditions of social and cultural activism alongside stories of everyday life among Britain's LGBTQ+ South Asians.

Richardson, Jennifer L. / Konate, Mariam et al., The Black Feminist Coup: Black Women's Lived Experiences in White Supremacist Feminist Academic Spaces. (Equity in Higher Education Theory, Policy, and Praxis 19) 168 pp. 2024:2 (P. Lang, SZ) <722-1126>
ISBN 978-1-63667-768-2 hard ¥28,556.- (税込) SFR 118.00
ISBN 978-1-63667-706-4 paper ¥10,164.- (税込) SFR 42.00

The Black Feminist Coup: Black Women's Lived Experiences in White Supremacist Feminist Academic Spaces is a collective narrative of how three Black women faculty at a large Midwestern PWI, and two of their former students and allies build alliances to collaboratively disrupt white supremacist feminist spaces. Themes of what it means to be a fugitive, to be free, and to be a feminist inform how we envision the future of Black women's labor in the academy. More specifically, this project explores intersecting narratives of how three Black women faculty fled a racist and microaggressive Gender and Women's Studies (GWS) department, following the start of the COVID 19 pandemic and the 2020 summer of racial unrest, and moved to an institute that houses African American and African studies. Their stories of misogynoir reflect a brutal irony that GWS departments expect Black women to further all women's interests while impeding Black women's ability to thrive. This work demands that institutions bear responsibility in providing Black women with an environment to thrive, and dream of new possibilities and opportunities to develop curricula and initiatives that center Black lives with priority. Bridging at the intersections of feminism, Black Studies, and higher education, this project surveys concepts of survival, trauma, pain, and healing to offer future possibilities for dismantling and challenging systems of white supremacy in the academy. The Black Feminist Coup is a groundbreaking text. Through courageous counter-stories and brilliant theoretical engagements, the authors spotlight the various intellectual traditions, institutional arrangements, power dynamics, and sociocultural practices that have made academia a persistent site of oppression and violence for Black women. Although such an offering would be more than enough for a single text, the book also provides a clear and accessible pathway toward dismantling White supremacy, nurturing radical resistance, and building safe and productive intellectual spaces for Black women within academia. -Marc Lamont Hill, Presidential Professor of Urban Education and Anthropology at CUNY Graduate Center THE BLACK FEMINIST COUP is a compelling, courageous co-authored monograph that explores the lived experiences of a group of mostly Black women in white supremacist feminist spaces at one university. Grounded in Black feminist history and theory, this pioneering text makes visible - in moving and painful ways-- the impact of racism, sexism, and misogynoir on Black feminists in the academy during various junctures of their journeys, including, perhaps surprisingly, women's and gender studies spaces. Especially instructive is the book's exploration of what cross-racial solidarities might mean in feminist academic spaces and what white women in particular might learn from these analyses and blueprints for transformation. -Beverly Guy-Sheftall, The Anna Julia Cooper Professor of Comparative Women's Studies at Spelman College and co-edited WORDS OF FIRE (New Press, 1995)

At its onset, the American Indian Women of Proud Nations Organization set out to create a space that would uplift Native American women, children, and families because of their central roles in the continuation of Native communities. The contributors to the second edition continue to document and reflect on the organization’s initiative and the efforts of Southeastern Native women and their allies to center women, children and families in protecting and strengthening kinship, land, and language as enduring aspects of Native American cultures. The second edition offers updated research on language revitalization, adolescents and their parental caregivers, Indigenous issues in higher education, and new work on matrilineality, the Missing and Murdered People crisis, and the continuation of healing traditions in a contemporary context.

Cruz, Anne / Franganillo Alvarez, Alejandra (eds.), Early Modern Women's Mobility, Authority, and Agency Across the Spanish Empire. (Connected Histories in the Early Modern World) 280 pp. 2024:4 (Amsterdam U. Pr., NE) <722-1147>
ISBN 978-94-6372-329-9 hard ¥31,447.- (税込) GB£ 113.00

The new parameters of a global world in the early modern period gave rise to an expansion of movement that facilitated spatial and social mobility for women of different social ranks. Through their reexamination of archival documents and travel narratives, these essays investigate the opportunities for female mobility across the Spanish Empire, narrating the journeys of women who assumed new and unpredictable roles in distant environments. Some risked transoceanic journeys to hold positions of colonial power, while nuns traveled to found convents. Portuguese and Genoese women financiers and merchants traversed the Mediterranean to command enterprises in different cities. Breaking with tradition, the noblewomen considered in these essays exercised political agency as ambassadresses and diplomatic spies at various European courts. Still other women fled across borders from oppressive marriages or cross-dressed as soldiers to perform adventurous feats in support of imperial causes. Their frequently distorted histories, authored by men, have been revised and rectified by the authors of this volume.

中世後期低地諸国における誘拐、結婚、同意
Delameillieure, Chanelle, Abduction, Marriage, and Consent in the Late Medieval Low Countries. (Gendering the Late Medieval and Early Modern World) 258 pp. 2024:5 (Amsterdam U. Pr., NE) <722-1149>
ISBN 978-94-6372-407-4 hard ¥31,447.- (税込) GB£ 113.00

The Middle Dutch term schaec referred to abduction with marital intent. This book explores this phenomenon to understand wider attitudes towards marriage-making in the fifteenth-century Low Countries. Whilst exchanging words of consent was all that was required legally, making marriage was a social process that evoked public concern and familial scrutiny. Abductions embodied contrasting evaluations of what mattered when selecting a spouse and resulted in polarized trials in which narratives on consent, coercion, and family strategy coincided and competed. Abduction, Marriage, and Consent draws from a wide range of legal records to assess how men, women, families, and authorities used, navigated, and dealt with abductions during this period. It contributes to debates on consent, family involvement, and women's access to justice and demonstrates that abduction should be approached as a comprehensive social phenomenon, one that is crucial in the history of marriage and women's social and legal status.

性的暴力とアメリカの奴隷制-アンテベラム期南部におけるレイプの文化の形成
Eaves, Shannon, Sexual Violence and American Slavery: The Making of a Rape Culture in the Antebellum South. 256 pp. 2024:4 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <722-1153>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7880-1 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00
ISBN 978-1-4696-7881-8 paper ¥6,025.- (税込) US$ 27.95

It is impossible to separate histories of sexual violence and the enslavement of Black women in the antebellum South. Rape permeated the lives of all who existed in that system: Black and white, male and female, adult and child, enslaved and free. Shannon Eaves unflinchingly investigates how both enslaved people and their enslavers experienced the systematic rape and sexual exploitation of bondswomen and came to understand what this culture of sexualized violence meant for themselves and others. Eaves mines a wealth of primary sources including autobiographies, diaries, court records, and more to show that rape and other forms of sexual exploitation entangled slaves and slave owners in battles over power to protect oneself and one's community, power to avenge hurt and humiliation, and power to punish and eliminate future threats. By placing sexual violence at the center of the systems of power and culture, Eaves shows how the South's rape culture was revealed in enslaved people's and their enslavers' interactions with one another and with members of their respective communities.

Fetner, Tina, Sex in Canada: The Who, Why, When, and How of Getting Down Up North. (Sexuality Studies) 204 pp. 2024:2 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-1156>
ISBN 978-0-7748-6950-8 hard ¥16,170.- (税込) US$ 75.00
ISBN 978-0-7748-6951-5 paper ¥7,750.- (税込) US$ 35.95

What do we do in the bedroom? Do other people do the same? How often? Who with? Movies and the internet seem saturated in sex, but it's difficult to separate fact from fiction, and real talk about our own sexual lives can feel uncomfortable. Sex in Canada pulls the covers off, breaking through myths with frank talk and hard facts. Tina Fetner delves into sex among singles and couples, marriage and monogamy, hooking up and committed relationships, guided by the results of her one-of-a-kind survey of adults aged eighteen to ninety. She shows us how the social forces that shape our lives also nudge our sexual behaviour into patterns that reflect the world around us. In applying the tools of social science to a formerly taboo topic, Sex in Canada offers the most accurate picture to date not just of Canadians' sex lives but of why we act the way we do.

Johnstone, Rachael / Momani, Bessma (eds.), Glass Ceilings and Ivory Towers: Gender Inequality in the Canadian Academy. 332 pp. 2024:5 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-1161>
ISBN 978-0-7748-6924-9 hard ¥24,794.- (税込) US$ 115.00

Even as Canadian universities suggest their gender issues have largely been resolved, many women in academia tell a different story. Systemic discrimination, the underrepresentation of women in more senior and lucrative roles, and the belief that gender-related concerns will simply self-correct with greater representation add up to a serious gender problem.Although these issues are widely acknowledged, reliable data is elusive. Glass Ceilings and Ivory Towers fills this research gap with a cross-disciplinary, data-driven investigation of gender inequality in Canadian universities. Research presented in this book reveals, for example, that women are more likely to hold sessional teaching positions and to face difficulties obtaining funding. They are also poorly represented at the upper echelons of the professoriate and must contend with a gender pay gap that widens as they move up the ranks.Contributors consider the daily grind of academic life, social, structural, and systemic challenges, and the gendered dynamics of university leadership, all with an eye to laying the groundwork for practical and meaningful institutional change.

Kinsey, Alfred C. / Pomeroy, Wardell B. / Martin, Clyde E., Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. Anniversary ed. 832 pp. 2023:8 (Indiana U. Pr., US) <722-1163>
ISBN 978-0-253-06746-3 paper ¥10,348.- (税込) US$ 48.00

When first published in 1948, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male encountered a storm of condemnation and acclaim. By unshackling sex research from flawed founding constraints, Kinsey revolutionized it. In this 75th anniversary edition, featuring a new foreword from Judith A. Allen, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male revisits the work of Alfred C. Kinsey and his fellow researchers as they sought to accumulate an objective body of facts regarding sex. Originally an entomologist, Kinsey applied his fieldwork taxonomy methods to human sexuality. With 5,300 research subjects, his undertaking was the largest sex research project of its time, transforming the field. With scientific exactness, Kinsey describes the methodology, sampling, coding, interviewing, and statistical analyses, and then examines factors and sources of sexual outlet. Told through men's experiences of sexuality and reproduction, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male: Anniversary Edition is a remarkable rumination on American society and science in the early 20th century.

ISBN 978-90-485-6041-7 hard ¥35,622.- (税込) GB£ 128.00

This wide-ranging transnational collection theorizes how late medieval and early modern Western women critically and creatively negotiated their faith and feminism, taking into account intersecting factors such as class, culture, confessional stance, institutional affiliation, ethnicity, dis/ability, geography, and historical circumstance. It presents thirteen original case studies on the diversity, complexity, and subtlety of the intersection of faith and feminism in the lives and works of twenty-two women writers over a 350-year period in six nations. Along the way, it interrogates the accuracy of the view that monotheistic religions only constrict and oppress women, stifling their agency, autonomy, and authority.

ISBN 978-90-485-5887-2 hard ¥31,447.- (税込) GB£ 113.00

Federico and Ferrante Gonzaga came of age during a time of intense change in sixteenth-century Italy: The Italian Wars (1494-1559). The first and third-born sons of Isabella d'Este and Francesco Gonzaga spent their formative years at the courts of Francis I of France and Charles V of Spain, where, as effectively diplomatic hostages, they learned valuable lessons about the transnational social codes and rituals central to sixteenth-century political life. As adults, they applied these lessons in their political and martial collaborations with Charles V: supporting his dominions in Italy, facilitating his attempted colonisation of northern Africa, and praising his attacks on Muslim pirates in the Italian Mediterranean. This book uses epistolary, literary, and material sources to argue that the boyhood and adult experiences of Federico and Ferrante Gonzaga are illustrative of wider strategies adopted by elite Italians to respond to conflict and crisis in a global age.

Jelena Tomovi? fuehrt in diesem Band durch die Entwicklungen unserer sexuellen Sprache und Praktiken. Sie zeigt, dass die Art und Weise, wie ueber Sexualitaet gesprochen wird, nicht nur ein Spiegelbild, sondern auch ein treibender Faktor fuer soziale Veraenderungen ist. Die Studie stellt die konventionelle Vorstellung von Sexualitaet in Frage und fuehrt die Lesenden in eine Welt der subtilen Nuancen und kulturellen Veraenderungen. Mit kommunikationstheoretischen Ansaetzen, dem praxeologischen Ansatz, ihrer sozialkonstruktivistischen Grundannahme und einem klaren Fokus auf Akteur*innen bietet Tomovi? eine frische Perspektive auf die Geschichte der Sexualitaet. Das Buch eroeffnet neue Wege fuer die Erforschung und das Verstaendnis von Intimitaet und sozialer Kommunikation. In this volume, Jelena Tomovi? takes us through the developments of our sexual language and practices. She demonstrates that the way we talk about sexuality is not only a reflection but also a driving force of social change. The study challenges conventional notions of sexuality and immerses readers in a world of subtle nuances and cultural shifts. Using communication theory approaches, the praxeological approach, her social constructivist foundation, and a clear focus on actors, Tomovi? offers a fresh perspective on the history of sexuality. The book paves new avenues for exploring and understanding intimacy and social communication.

ISBN 978-1-03-252117-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Sex, Gender, Ethics, and the Darwinian Evolution of Humanity examines the impact of Darwin's 'Descent of Man' on contemporary biology and the humanities.Its publication in 1871 was a founding event in anthropology. Its content was primarily concerned with the development of sexual life, social life, and intellectual life, not only as outcomes of evolution, but as components that have actively intermixed over time with the evolutionary mechanism of natural selection. The stamp of Darwinism on modern thought is still very important and brings novelties to academic studies. Several fields influenced by Darwinian anthropology developed in recent decades, including evolutionary ethics, the evolution of sociality and sexual communication in animal and plant species. Sociobiology and evolutionary psychology are topics that draw heavily on Darwin's 'Descent of Man'. The understanding of Darwin's thought has also progressed greatly in recent decades, following the systematic study of Darwin's correspondence and notebooks, leading to a reassessment of the development of his thought on humans, social groups, and heredity, and how they come together in his theory of evolution.The book combines a historical perspective on Darwin's achievement and his legacy. It will be of interest to students and scholars in a variety of fields, from experimental biology to the social and historical sciences.

ISBN 978-1-4399-2252-1 paper ¥7,535.- (税込) US$ 34.95

Female Body Image and Beauty Politics in Contemporary Indian Literature and Culture is the first volume to analyze the myriad conceptualizations of South Asian women's body issues in film, literature, advertising, and other media. Showing how body image and self-identity are constructed in contemporary neoliberal India, the editors and contributors theorize issues of body image vis-a-vis Indian womanhood while touching upon political, socio-economic, and cultural parameters. Influences from the colonial period through the age of the internet and globalization have reinforced Eurocentric ideals about femininity and womanhood. This long overdue volume addresses the pressures of beautification that Indian women face as they struggle with body acceptance and are often denied pride in their natural bodies.Contributors: Annika Taneja, Anurima Chanda, Aratrika Bose, Kavita Daiya, Ketaki Chowkhani, Nishat Haider, Samrita Sinha, Shailendra Kumar Singh, Shubhra Ray, Sucharita Sarkar, Sukshma Vedere, Swatie, Tanupriya, Turni Chakrabarti, and the editors.

Proper Women tells the unprecedented story of an NGO-led "women's empowerment" program in Tehran that was created to serve young, impoverished Iranians and Afghan refugees. Fae Chubin recounts the well-intentioned efforts of cosmopolitan NGO administrators whose loyalty to liberal feminist principles of individualism, sexual autonomy, and anti-traditionalism complicated their objective of empowering marginalized women. Chubin brings attention to the varying class, ethnic, religious, and national identities of NGO staff and clients that shaped their differing understandings of oppression and justice. Her examination of the tensions within the organization reveals why the efforts of the NGO workers failed to gain purchase among the intended beneficiaries.Proper Women concludes by encouraging feminist activists to not only examine the role of local politics and transnational connections in shaping their definitions of empowerment, but also consider the advantages of a justice-enhancing practice as opposed to justice monism for their target populations.
