Allison Weir sets forth a concept of identity which depends on an acceptance of nonidentity, difference, and connection to others, defined as a capacity to participate in a social world. Weir argues that the equation of identity with repression and domination links "relational feminists" like Nancy Chodorow, who equate self-identity with the repression of connection to others, and poststructuralist feminists like Judith Butler, who view any identity as a repression of nonidentity or difference. Weir traces this conception of identity as domination back to Simone de Beauvoir's theories of the relation of self and other.

This book brings together leading specialists from various academic disciplines to elucidate the modern debate about sacrifice for the first time. This debate has been fed by theological concerns, by the influence of literary and musical works, and by the encounter with non-European cultures since the Age of Discovery. While ritual sacrifice has been all but absent in European modernity, ideas, images, theories, and stories about sacrifice have been at the centreof academic, artistic, and public interest since the sixteenth century. Individual chapters discuss anthropological theories, theological controversies, philosophical interpretations, and literary usesof sacrifice. They result not in a single narrative but in a representation of the diverse factors and aspects that have contributed to modernity's obsession with the topic of sacrifice.

Gender differences between men and women are not just a matter of sexual differentiation; the roles that men and women play are also socially and culturally determined, in ancient Israel and post-biblical Judaism as in every other context. That is the theme of these ten studies. What understandings of masculinity and femininity underlie the regulations about incest? And what kind of rights did mediaeval Middle-Eastern Jewish women have within their marriage relationships?

"This is an excellent account of the dilemmas and opportunities facing contemporary theories of gender and education. The book brings together some of the most sophisticated researchers in the field to demonstrate the power, the mysteries and the complexities of the concept of identity. The case for a new approach to gender theory is convincing and exciting. Teachers, academics and policy makers need to recognise the value of such contemporary concerns." - Madeleine Arnot, University of Cambridge. Investigating Gender maps the contemporary and developing theoretical debates in the field of gender and education, and provides an overview of the diverse areas of research within gender and education. Contributions have been commissioned from recognised experts in the field in order to provide a comprehensive reader on gender and education for undergraduate students. The book will also provide stimulating reading for postgraduate students and academics. Recent changes, developments and challenges in the field are outlined in the first section of the book. It also catalogues the influence of research in this area on policy in the UK context. The second section focuses on recent innovations in theoretical debates in gender and education. Overviews of research developments in particular subject areas (such as sexuality, social class, masculinity etc) are provided in the third section, where contributors draw on their own research findings to illustrate the discussion.
