Sacrificed lives : Kristeva on women and violence by Martha Jane Reineke( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why did medieval women mystics starve themselves? What caused the European witch hunts, and why were its victims tortured and killed? Why has the Christian West regularly found maternal figures threatening? To answer these questions, Martha Reineke advances a theory of sacrifice, inspired by Julia Kristeva and Rene Girard, that attempts to account for violence in Western culture, the human proclivity for bodily mutilation and abuse, and women's special vulnerability to violence. A challenging and controversial book, Sacrificed Lives constructs an important bridge between "esoteric," postmodern theory and "ordinary" human life, as it furthers a vital philosophical debate on the question of violence

"As the millennium comes to a close, feminist scholars and other researchers in the social sciences and the humanities have been faced with challenging contradictions about methods used to understand the truth of women's lives. Whose voices can be believed? Whose perspectives can be trusted? With a growing awareness that restrictive lenses distort the scholar's own line of vision, Martha J. Reineke, professor of religion, poses a new model for inquiry which many will find engaging."--Container
