Policing narratives and the state of terror by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, world politics have increasingly mirrored plots of detective novels, with high-profile criminal investigations that cross multiple borders and the internationalized law enforcement practices associated with the "War on Terror." Policing Narratives and the State of Terror examines the relationship between domestic policing and International policy through an analysis of contemporary popular detective fiction, police procedurals, police autobiography, security reports, and chronicles of domestic spying. Robin Truth Goodman connects these accounts of policing to the changing shape of the contemporary nation-state, marked by the denationalization of labor; commercial and criminal laws that jump borders more quickly than civil law protections; and the replacement of legal precedent by unrepeatable, exceptional executive decisions. Working at the intersection of literature, international law, and globalized commerce, Goodman astutely pinpoints how policing has become an increasingly troublesome instrument of empire, particularly in terms of national sovereignty and the growing numbers of mercenary private security forces."--Jacket
Strange love : or how we learn to stop worrying and love the market by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saltman and Goodman show how corporate-produced curricula, films, and corporate-promoted books often use depictions of family love, childhood innocence, and compassion in order to sell the public on policies that ironically put the profit of multinational corporations over the well-being of people. In doing so, the authors reveal the extent to which globalization depends upon education and also show how battles over culture, language, and the control of information are matters of life, death, and democracy

Literature and the development of feminist theory by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literature and the Development of Feminist Theory offers an insightful look at the development of feminist theory through a literary lens. Starting from the European Enlightenment, this book traces the literary careers of feminism's major thinkers in order to elucidate the connection of feminist theoretical production to literary work. In addition to considering such well-known authors as Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Simone de Beauvoir and Hélène Cixous, this book reflects on the influence of postcolonialism, liberalism, and specific genres such as science fiction and modernist poetry. Written by leading scholars and focusing on the literary trajectories of feminism's noted contributors, Literature and the Development of Feminist Theory ultimately provides a new perspective on feminism's theoretical context, bringing into view the effects of literary form on feminist thought. -- from back cover
Gender work : feminism after neoliberalism by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recently, labor has acquired a re-emergent public relevance. In response, feminist theory urgently needs to reconsider the relationship between labor and gender. This book builds a theoretically-informed politics about changes in the gendered structure of labor by analyzing how the symbolic power of gender is put in the service of neoliberal practices. Goodman traces the cultural contextualization of 'women's work' from its Marxist roots to its current practices. From the income gap to the gendering of industries, Goodman explores and critiques the rise of corporate power under neoliberalism and the ways and whys that femininity has become one of its principle commodities
Gender for the warfare state : literature of women in combat by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first scholarly investigation into the written works of U.S. women combat veterans in twenty-first century wars. Most recent studies quantify military participation, showing how many women participate in armed services and what their experiences are in a traditionally "male institution." Many of these treatments regard women as victims solely of enemy fire, even as they are also often victims of their own military apparatus and of their own involvement in global aggression. By applying literary analysis to a sociological question, Gender for the Warfare State views women's experiences through story and literary traditions that carry meaning into present practices. Goodman shows that women in combat are not just entering and being victimized in "male institutions," but are also actively changing the story of gender and thus the structure of power that is constructed through gender. Moreover, this book unveils a new narrative of care that affects economic relations more broadly and the contemporary politics of the liberal social contract. Women's participation in combat is not just a U.S. event but global and therefore has a deeper historical range than current sociological accounts imply. The book compares the political contexts of women's entry into war now with their prior, twentieth-century contributions to wars in other cultural settings and then uses this comparison to show a variety of meanings at play in the gender of war

Human half-breeds: Women, sex and colonial crossings by Robin Truth Goodman( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigating textual moments where evolutionary theory's notions of infertility would define borders between species and races, this dissertation approaches, from a number of different disciplinary perspectives, histories where hybridity both underwrites and destabilizes inscriptions of heterosexualities. My first chapter sets up the relationship between colonialism and sexualities by discussing evolutionary theory's influence on Freud's analyses of sexual difference in women. In my second chapter, I explore the ways in which racial mixing on the colonies, as treated in Conrad's earliest novels Almayer's Folly and An Outcast of the Islands, marks his later representation of the "New Woman" in Chance. I then move into Latin American settings where gender becomes a salient factor in the construction of national identities, first in relation to Carpentier's framing of "American" literary difference within a scientific discourse on hybridity, and then in relation to Vargas Llosa's philosophy of eroticism as the line conjoining civilization and barbarism. My last chapter treats the Palinho Paiakan rape case in Brazil, where debates over the constitutional definitions of ethnic identity, environmentalism, and an anthropology of indigenous media production all played a substantial role in locating race and gender within legislative agendas. Linking the literary analysis to cultural and global events, I look at these works as sharing in the constructions of historical discourses and contemporary debates over ethnic representation, racial identities and the politics of reproduction
