This first volume of The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger documents the critical phases and influences of an American feminist icon and offers rare glimpses into her working-class childhood, burgeoning feminism, spiritual and scientific interests, sexual explorations, and diverse roles as wife, mother, nurse, journalist, radical socialist, and activist. These letters and other writings, including diaries, journals, articles, and speeches, most of which have never before been published, have been selected and assembled with an eye to telling the story of a remarkable life, punctuated by arrests and imprisonments, exile, love affairs, and a momentous personal loss--a life consumed with the quest for women's sexual liberation

Publisher's description: The birth control crusader, feminist, and reformer Margaret Sanger was one of the most controversial and compelling figures in the twentieth century. This first volume of The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger documents the critical phases and influences of an American feminist icon and offers rare glimpses into her working-class childhood, burgeoning feminism, spiritual and scientific interests, sexual explorations, and diverse roles as wife, mother, nurse, journalist, radical socialist, and activist. These letters and other writings, including diaries, journals, articles, and speeches, most of which have never before been published, have been selected and assembled with an eye to telling the story of a remarkable life, punctuated by arrests and imprisonments, exile, love affairs, and a momentous personal loss--a life consumed with the quest for women's sexual liberation. Because its narrative line is so absorbing, volume 1 may be read as a powerful biography. Volume 1 covers a twenty-eight-year period from nurse's training and early socialist involvement in pre- World War I bohemian Greenwich Village to Sanger's adoption of birth control (a term she helped coin in 1914) as a fundamental tenet of women's rights. It traces the intersection of her life and work with other reformers, activists and leaders of modernity on both sides of the Atlantic, including Havelock Ellis, H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Emma Goldman, Max Eastman, and Eugene Debs, as well as many leading radical artists and writers of the day. It highlights her legislative and organizational efforts, her support of the eugenics movement, and the alliances she secured with medical professionals in her crusade to make birth control legal, respectable, and accessible. This volume also includes letters from women desperately in need of fertility control who saw Sanger as their last hope. Supplemented by an introduction, brief essays providing narrative and chronological links, and substantial notes, the volume is an invaluable tool for understanding Sanger's actions and accomplishments. The documents assembled here, more than 80 percent of them letters, were culled from the Margaret Sanger Papers Microfilm Edition, edited by Esther Katz, Cathy Moran Hajo, and Peter C. Engelman. Two subsequent volumes will address later periods in her life, and an additional volume will cover her international work in the birth control struggle

Aires y lluvias : antropología del clima en México by Annamária Lammel( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las inundaciones, sequías, granizadas y otros fenómenos meteorológicos siempre han tenido una carga simbólica entre los habitantes de México. Los ritos asociados al clima perviven en todo el territorio, por ejemplo, detrás de fiestas católicas como la de San Isidro o la famosa celebración del Día de la Santa Cruz, que crean un vínculo con el pasado indígena, cuando el hombre y el medio ambiente formaban parte de un mismo sistema. Los pueblos mesoamericanos observaban los cambios estacionales, los registraban y veneraban con rituales que tenían el doble valor de pedir y agradecer por la lluvia o el aire. Su itinerario seguía un sofisticado calendario, donde se asociaban la agricultura, la astronomía y las concepciones religiosas. Para muchos indígenas mexicanos aún hoy pueden observarse varios tipos de lluvias y aires, asociados a cada ciclo o temporada. A su vez, hay en las comunidades campesinas individuos privilegiados con el poder de actuar sobre el clima e invocar a las fuerzas de la naturaleza para salvar las cosechas. ¿Cuál es el origen de estas costumbres? ¿Por qué se les atribuye un papel preponderante? Este libro explora las diversas facetas de la relación entre las sociedades pasadas y presentes de México con el clima, entre los indígenas y mestizos, en poblaciones rurales o urbanas. Los artículos recogen un conjunto de conocimientos y prácticas en constante adaptación al contexto social y ambiental. Con enfoques desde la arqueología o la antropología, hasta la psicología y la geografía, Aires y lluvias es también una obra sobre el deterioro ambiental y la amenaza creciente de los fenómenos naturales, así como un intento por rescatar y comprender la convivencia entre los seres humanos y su medio ambiente

How did Margaret Sanger's 1922 tour of Japan help spread the idea of birth control and inspire the formation of a Japanese birth control movement? by Peter Engelman( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margaret Sanger's 1922 lecture tour of Japan resulted in a public discussion of birth control and population problems and provided a strong impetus for the formation of a Japanese birth control movement. The English and Japanese-language documents selected for this document project demonstrate how the Japanese government's attempt to suppress Sanger's speech created a public relations triumph for Sanger and birth control both in Japan and the United States. The documents also offer insight into Japan's evolving movement for women's rights and the West's perception of Japanese society
