Fatal women : lesbian sexuality and the mark of aggression by Lynda Hart( Book )
24 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 645 libraries worldwide
"In this major contribution to lesbian theory/cultural studies, Lynda Hart analyzes the way violent women have been represented in literature, plays, film, and performance. Starting from the historical link between criminality and sexual deviancy, Hart builds a complex and original theory in which the shadow of the lesbian animates representations of violent women from the Victorian novel to the recent proliferation of films depicting women who kill. This cross-disciplinary study critiques constructions of gender, race, class, sexualities, and the cultural politics of the 1990s in one of the first book-length contributions to lesbian theory. Fatal Women is certain to be widely read by scholars, students, and anyone interested in the politics of representation. Hart's introductory chapter constructs a theory of female violence across the discourse of sexology, criminology, and psychoanalysis. Subsequent chapters detail this theory in the Victorian novel and stage sensation Lady Audley's Secret, Frank Wedekind's Lulu plays, which introduced the "invert" onto European stage, the popular films Thelma and Louise, Mortal Thoughts, and Basic Instinct, the political intersection of race and gender in Single White Female, the performance art of Karen Finley in the context of the censorship debates, the fate of Aileen Wuornos, dubbed the first "female serial killer" by the FBI, and the Split Britches' performance Lesbians Who Kill."--Publisher's description
Between the body and the flesh : performing sadomasochism by Lynda Hart( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 341 libraries worldwide
"In this first book-length study of lesbian s/m, Lynda Hart creates a vivid and compelling counterdiscourse to the erotophobic voices in contemporary cultural debates. Focusing on a variety of representations, from the boundary-shattering work of queer performances to the daring conjunction of childhood sexual abuse and perverse desire in the work of Dorothy Allison, Between the Body and the Flesh situates s/m as a lightning rod that stimulates discussions of censorship in the arts, the fetishization of sexual paraphernalia, recombinations of class, race, and sexuality, and the politics of psychoanalysis."--Jacket

The acquisition of standard English speech habits using second-language techniques: an experiment in speech modification in the verbal behavior of prison inmates by John M McKee( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Many people take for granted the use of language as a tool for coping with everyday occupational and social problems. However, there are those, such as prison inmates, who have difficulty using language in this manner. Realizing that prison inmates are not always able to communicate effectively through standard patterns of speech and thus are hampered in their rehabilitation efforts, this project focused on the modification of their substandard speech habits . Subjects were 21 Draper inmates matched on the basis of pre-oral usage test and divided into two control groups and one experimental group. Measures were taken and percentage change scores from pre- to posttreatment were employed as the units for analytical processing. A major finding was that all experimental inmates showed increments that averaged 36 percent while a majority of the control inmates showed slight to moderate decrements averaging 6 percent. In concluding it was noted that the speech intervention drills and discussions were directly effective in modifying oral usage and indirectly effective by way of generalization of training in similar and dissimilar behavioral areas.
