Freudians and feminists by Edith Kurzweil( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years ago, few observers would have foreseen that some feminists would once again turn to Freud. But in recent years, the adoption by American feminists of French concepts - especially the ideas of Lacan - has led to new approaches in feminist theory and psychology. This book traces the intellectual history of the interaction between feminists and Freudian thought, charting psychoanalytic theories through the years to show how specific notions were adapted, readapted, and discarded by successive generations of feminists

A partisan view : five decades of the politics of literature by William Phillips( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its founding in 1937, Partisan Review has been one of the most important and culturally influential journals in America. Under the legendary editorship of William Phillips and Philip Rahv, Partisan Review began as a publication of the John Reed Club, but soon broke away to establish itself as a free voice of critical dissent. As such, it counteracted the inroads of cultural Stalinism and took up the fight for aesthetic modernism at a time when the latter was fiercely contested by both the political left and the right. In A Partisan View, William Phillips gives a vivid account of his own part in the magazine's eventful history."--Jacket

Full circle : a memoir by Edith Kurzweil( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reader follows Kurzweil on her perilous journey, at the age of fourteen, to Belgium, through France, Spain, and Portugal, alone with her younger brother. Her fantasies of reunion with her parents in New York kept her going but came to naught : she had not expected to fall from a wealthy childhood into the life of the working class poor, as a millinery apprentice or a diamond cutter. Instead of entering college life, she eventually became a conventional American housewife. Unhappy and anxious, she anticipated the social changes in America, and returned to Europe with her second husband and her two children. She arrived at the beginning of the Italian miracle - its post-war revitalization
Cultural analysis : the work of Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jürgen Habermas by Robert Wuthnow( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

First published in 1984, Cultural Analysis is a systematic examination of the theories of culture contained in the writings of four contemporary social theorists: Peter L. Berger, Mary Douglas, Michel Foucault, and Jürgen Habermas. This study of their work clarifies their contributions to the analysis of culture and shows the converging assumptions that the authors believe are laying the foundation for a new approach to the study of culture.
