20 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 513 libraries worldwide
"This important book examines the impact of changes in social policy regimes on gender roles and relations. Structured thematically and systematically comparative, it analyses three key policy areas: labour markets, income maintenance, and reproductive rights. Largely driven by issues of equality, it considers the role of the state as a site for gender and sexual politics at a time when primacy is given to the market, developing an argument about social citizenship in the process."--Jacket

The many hands of the state : theorizing political authority and social control by Kimberly J Morgan( Book )
8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
"The state is central to social scientific and historical inquiry today, reflecting its importance in domestic and international affairs. States kill, coerce, fight, torture, and incarcerate, yet they also nurture, protect, educate, redistribute, and invest. It is precisely because of the complexity and wide-ranging impacts of states that research on them has proliferated and diversified. Yet, too many scholars inhabit separate academic silos, and theorizing of states has become dispersed and disjointed. This book aims to bridge some of the many gaps between scholarly endeavors, bringing together scholars from a diverse array of disciplines and perspectives who study states and empires. The book offers not only a sample of cutting-edge research that can serve as models and directions for future work, but an original conceptualization and theorization of states, their origins and evolution, and their effects"--

Extrait du résumé . "Dans les pays développés, l'emploi des femmes et les politiques qui les favorisent, le limitent ou l'ignorent sont aujourd'hui au coeur du débat politico-social. Les politiques sociales et d'autres interventions politiques ... ne sont pas les seuls facteurs à influer sur l'emploi des femmes ... . La politique sociale a aussi son importance, peut être moins pour développer l'emploi féminin que pour déterminer les modalités du travail des femmes, ..., et pour aider à cerner les enjeux d'une politique sociale dans laquelle les femmes ont leur place. A cet égard, bien que la part de la main-d'oeuvre féminine ait partout augmenter, les mesures et facteurs politiques ayant une incidence sur l'emploi féminin varient sensiblement d'un pays à l'autre. ... L'auteur s'est donné trois tâches, d'abord donner une vue d'ensemble des informations existantes sur la nature de l'emploi féminin et les politiques sociales qui s'y rapportent, notamment les grilles utilisées pour tenter de classer les politiques nationales par type de régime politique. Ensuite, étudier les possibilités qui s'offrent aux femmes lorsqu'elles ne peuvent pas prendre un travail rémunéré ... . Enfin, envisager une recherche qui tente de dégager les caractéristiques nationales des politiques touchant à l'emploi des femmes. Elle conclut par quelques réflexions sur la manière dont l'emploi féminin peut déboucher sur une plus grande égalité des sexes. L'unité thématique du document vient de l'attention portée aux liens entre la politique sociale, les caractéristiques de l'emploi féminin et l'égalités entre hommes et femmes. Empiriquement, l'accent a été mis sur les pays développés."
Perverse politics? : feminism, anti-imperialism, multiplicity by Ann Shola Orloff( Book )
8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
In this special issue, we address what we refer to as 'perversity of the political' or 'perverse politics': namely, the assumptions political theory and movements, and in our specific case feminism, often make on behalf of their subjects, and how their subjects, in return, perform individual and collective contrariness, unruliness and resistance to what is expected or desired from their 'subjectivity'. Specifically focusing on the themes of 'false consciousness', multiplicity, and uneasy alliances, the papers collected here seek to empirically lay out a number of such 'perverse' moments, and offer anti-imperialist feminist alternatives to second wave feminism's often reductive understandings of freedom; emancipation; oppression; empowerment and democracy
