James Baldwin : America and beyond ( file )
15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 750 libraries worldwide
"This fine collection of essays represents an important contribution to the rediscovery of Baldwin's stature as essayist, novelist, black prophetic political voice, and witness to the Civil Rights era. The title provides an excellent thematic focus. He understood both the necessity, and the impossibility, of being a black 'American' writer. He took these issues 'Beyond'--Paris, Istanbul, various parts of Africa--but this formative experience only returned him to the unresolved dilemmas. He was a fine novelist and a major prophetic political voice. He produced some of the most important essays of the twentieth century and addressed in depth the complexities of the black political movement. His relative invisibility almost lost us one of the most significant voices of his generation. This welcome 'revival' retrieves it. Close call."--Stuart Hall, Professor Emeritus, Open University This interdisciplinary collection by leading writers in their fields brings together a discussion of the many facets of James Baldwin, both as a writer and as the prophetic conscience of a nation. The core of the volume addresses the shifting, complex relations between Baldwin as an American-"as American as any Texas GI" as he once wryly put it-and his life as an itinerant cosmopolitan. His ambivalent imaginings of America were always mediated by his conception of a world "beyond" America: a world he knew both from his travels and from his voracious reading. He was a man whose instincts were, at every turn, nurtured by America; but who at the same time developed a ferocious critique of American exceptionalism. In seeking to understand how, as an American, he could learn to live with difference-breaking the power of fundamentalisms of all stripes-he opened an urgent, timely debate that is still ours. His America was an idea fired by desire and grief in equal measure. As the authors assembled here argue, to read him now allows us to imagine new possibilities for the future. With contributions by Kevin Birmingham, Douglas Field, Kevin Gaines, Briallen Hopper, Quentin Miller, Vaughn Rasberry, Robert Reid-Pharr, George Shulman, Hortense Spillers, Colm Tóibín, Eleanor W. Traylor, Cheryl A. Wall, and Magdalena Zaborowska

in English and held by 537 libraries worldwide
Volume 7: "The ranks of English women writers rose steeply in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, contributing to the era's revolutionary social movements as well as to transforming literary genres in prose and poetry. The phenomena of 'the new' -- 'New Women', 'New Unionism', 'New Imperialism', 'New Ethics', 'New Critics', 'New Journalism', 'New Man' -- are this moment's touchstones. This book tracks the period's new social phenomena and unfolds its distinctively modern modes of writing. It provides expert introductions amid new insights into women's writing throughout the United Kingdom and around the globe."--Publisher's website

Formations of fantasy ( Book )
16 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 442 libraries worldwide
"Do we live in the real world? Rather than dismissing fantasy as a dispensable supplement to reality, the authors in this voume stress the 'psychical reality' of fantasy in shaping our perceptions, beliefs and behaviour--an emphasis which has fundamental consequences for any account of the political. 'Formations of Fantasy' republishes and interrogates two classic psychoanalytic essays which demonstrate the pivotal role of fantasy in the constitution of sexual identity--Jean Laplanche and Jean-Bertrand Pontalis' 'Fantasy and the origins of sexuality' (with a new afterword by the authors) and Joan Riviere's 'Womanliness as a masquerade' (with a commentary by Stephen Heath). It also contains specially written articles which indicate the salience of fantasy for an undersetanding of visual imagery, literature and the cinema"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover
British women's writing in the long eighteenth century : authorship, politics, and history ( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 431 libraries worldwide
"A constellation of essays on authorship, politics and history, British Women's Writing in the Long Eighteenth Century presents the latest thinking on gender and women's writing in the long eighteenth century, areas of work which have moved decisively from the periphery to the centre of eighteenth-century studies. This collection highlights the ways in which women writers and their work were key to the worlds of politics and letters, integrated rather than separate from their central concerns, challenging past paradigms which too sharply divided - and gendered - public and private spheres and discourses."--Jacket
Transitions, environments, translations : feminisms in international politics by Joan Wallach Scott( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
The essays in Transitions, Environments, Translations explore the varied meanings of feminism in different political, cultural, and historical contexts. They respond to the claim that feminism is Western in origin and universalist in theory, and to the assumption that feminist goals are self-evident and the same in all contexts. Rather than assume that there is a blueprint by which to measure the strength or success of feminism in different parts of the world, these essays consider feminism to be a site of local, national and international conflict. They ask: What is at stak
