In Our Time: Memoir of a Revolution, Brownmiller, Susan
1 Brownmiller, Susan In Our Time: Memoir of a Revolution
0385314868 / 9780385314862; No long ago, the concept of equal pay for equal work did not exist, when women of all ages were "girls, " when abortion was a back-alley fix, when there was no such thing as a rape crisis center or a shelter for battered women, when "sexual harassment" had not yet been named and defined. "If conditions are right, " Susan Brownmiller says in this stunning memoir, "if the anger of enough people has reached the boiling point, the exploding passion can ignite a societal transformation. " This book tells the story of that transformation as only Brownmiller can. She brings the Women's Liberation Movement and its passionate history vividly to life. Included is a colorful cast of characters on whose shoulders we stand - the feminist icons Betty Friedan, Kate Millet, Germaine Greer, and Gloria Steinem, and lesser known women whose contributions to change were equally profound. And here are the landmark events of the era; the conciousness-raising groups, mimeographed position papers that first articulated the new thinking, the abortion and rape speak-outs, the daring sit-ins, the underground newspapers and inventive lawsuits all played a role in the most wide-reaching revolution of the twentieth century. Finally, the author addresses that most relevant question: What is the legacy of feminism today? An absorbing read whether you've only heard about such things or lived through these times. 360 pages, including notes and index. Many photographs included. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

2 Flanagan, Caitlin To Hell with all That: the Housewife Reconsidered
0316736872 / 9780316736879; This is an uncorrected proof. The original title was To Hell With All That, Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife. Written by Caitlin Flanagan, the hilarious and provocative social critic, compares the rituals and experiences that shaped the fifties housewife with those that have forged the modern woman and arrives at some surprising conclusions. In her signature prose - brightly funny and brutally honest - Flanagan examines everything from the white-wedding craze to the epidemic of undersexed marriages. Whether she is reporting on the mommy wars, the anticlutter movement, or America's new nanny culture, her book reveals both the high cost women pay for devoting themselves to the people they love and also the matchless rewards that come from such a sacrifice. 196 pages, the top back cover has a small chipped area. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

5 Markus, Julia Across an Untried Sea: Discovering Lives Hidden in the Shadow of Convention and Time
0679445994 / 9780679445999; This book retrieves the lives of Victorian women - writers, actresses, poets, journalists, sculptors, and social reformers - celebrated in their day but forgotten in ours. The author focuses in particular on the Americal Charlotte Cushmon, the most famous English-speaking actress of her day; and on the Scottish Jane Welsh Carlyle, a brilliant London hostess who gave up private ambition to become the wife of her friend Thomas Carlyle. Of this book Gloria Steinem said "Across an Untried Sea is as fascinating as any novel, and as mind-blowing as every historical revelation. If forgetting is the root of oppression, then Julia Markus has taken a big step toward freedom by uncovering the creative, sexual, enmeshed lives of nineteenth-century women of genius. " 331 pages including notes, bibliography and index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

7 Pace, Anita If You Want to Soar. You've Got to Learn to Fly
0963166611 / 9780963166616; Great for discussion with a book club - ten copies available. Are people more alike or more different? Are our experiences in growing up so different from one another? Anita Pace takes her feelings, experiences, fears and dreams and they are re-told from you child to womanhood. As she becomes increasingly aware of her sexuality and inequities between the sexes, she must struggle to become who she is, although the striving for confomity has been driven inside her by family and church. Insightful and humorous from the innocence of a child's mind to the conflicts of adolescense, this book is not just about growing up. It's about rising above and beyond where we were told we ever could. It's about how our similarities as people may surpass our differences. And the one very nice touch in this book is that as a child, the type is large like a child's book. As she gradually grows to adulthood the type becomes smaller, eventually becoming the type of an average adult book. Numerous illustrations and photographs, 234 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

9 Sasson, Jean Mayada, Daughter of Iraq: One Woman's Survival under Saddam Hussein
0525948112 / 9780525948117; Shocking. Candid. Sad, sobering, and compassionate. - San Francisco Chronicle. Mayada's story, both past and present, is truly incredible. Her family was one of the most distinguished and honored families in Iraq. One grandfather fought alongside Lawrence of Arabia. The other was the first true Arab nationalist (admired greatly by Saddam Hussein) . Her uncle was prime minister of Iraq for nearly forty years; her mother an important government official. When Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party seized power in 1979, Mayada didn't foresee the devestation it would wreak upon her life and her beloved country. She had no idea that she could ever become a target of Saddam's secret police until one nightmarish day in 1999. At Baladiyat, Mayada was thrown into cell 52 along with 17 other women - nameless and faceless, from all sorts of backgrounds, whose only shared connection was imprisonment without trial and the ever-present threat of torture and execution. 304 pages including an index and photographs. 1" remainder mark on the bottom. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
