In the highly sensuous 'Taking it Easy' a mother with writers block finds an escape from the slavery of her twin enemies by turning them into food for thought.

Illustrated with some flowcharts, and line drawings, and with an index, this book presents 9 essays and research reports by leading scholars who consider the important issue of gender differences in mathematical education. The longitudinal nature of these studies and the cross-cultural perspective provided by the inclusion of Australian and American research makes this discussion a particularly valuable one. In addition to presenting a background to the debate on gender differences, the book also provides insight into the interactions between internal beliefs and external influences, and how they, in turn, affect the learning of mathematics. – Rear panel blurb First edition of the work in this format and binding, and/or set or series.

No other damage, no annotations. In the first 3 chapters the author discusses some of the Gallup Terry and proposals and considers the notion of equality as applied to things and that of the equality of peers. In the next chapter she looks of the rulings of the Supreme Court relating to gender, showing that some were based not on egalitarianism reasoning, but on the acknowledgement of special needs and rights. She then asks, "why are we so inclined to view human beings as if they were sexless and androgynous?" And answers by pointing to the purely rational and spiritual view of human nature which is implicit throughout western ethical and social thought. The final Discusses the atomistic model of society which dominates much of philosophy, social science, and economics – which, she feels has created logical obstacles to recognition of women's rights.

The Memoirs of Gluckel of Hameln
Gluckel of Hameln [ Translated by Marvin Lowenthal ],
ISBN: 0805205721
Schocken Books, New York, 1977. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Reprint. XXVIII, 298 pages, introduction by Robert S. Rosen and notes throughout the book by translator. The text is illustrated with a few contemporary black-and-white illustrations. Faint age toning of the text block edges. Small creased at the bottom right-hand corner of the front panel. No other damage to describe. " Begun in 1690, the story of a forty-four-year-old German Jewish widow, mother of 14 children, tells how she guided the financial and personal destinies of her children, how she engaged in trade, ran her own factory, and promoted the welfare of her large family. Her memoir, a bare account of an ordinary woman, enlightened not just her children, for whom she wrote it, but all prosperity about her life and community. Gluckel speaks to us with determination and humour from the 17th century. She tells of war, plague, pirates, soldiers, the hysteria of the false messiah Sabbtai Zevi, murder, bankrupt, wedding feasts, births deaths, in fact, of all human events that befell her during her lifetime. She writes in a matter-of-fact way of the frightening and precarious situation under which the Jews of northern Germany lived.

The First Voice of Australian Feminism: Excerpts from Louisa Lawson’s The Dawn 1888 – 1895
Lawson, Olive,
ISBN: 0731801377
Simon & Schuster Australia in association with New Endeavour Press, Brookvale, 1990. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. Secondhand copy, slight offset tanning of the spine margin of the half title page and the second last page of the book. No other damage. No annotations. Published in Australia between 1888 and 1905, Louisa Lawson’s monthly journal, The Dawn, proposed a vision of society where women enjoyed increased political and social agency. Women’s suffrage was integral to such a vision, and through The Dawn Lawson was able to blend arguments for the enfranchisement of women with discussions about morality, sexual difference, family and marriage. Lawson was central to the production and success of The Dawn, with the journal being her primary public platform. Somewhat surprisingly, however, most of the existing historiography foregrounds Lawson’s personal life and her relationship with her son, author and poet, Henry Lawson. Although The Dawn is frequently cited as one of Lawson’s most significant achievements, its contents are generally not examined in any depth. – Ingrid Mahony – Australian National University Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 363, [5] pages.
