With daring originality, The Gendered Atom explores the uncharted depths of the scientific soul. There, beneath the scientist's rational, purportedly objective surface, Theodore Roszak finds a maelstrom of repressed sexual prejudices and gender stereotypes. Beyond analyzing where we have gone wrong, The Gendered Atom looks forward to a gender-free science that respects our community with nature and promises a healthier, more fulfilling form of knowledge.

From the inability of wealth to make us happier, to our catastrophic blindness to the credit crunch, Economyths reveals ten ways in which economics has failed us all. Forecasters predicted a prosperous year in 2008 for financial markets - in one influential survey the average prediction was for an eleven percent gain. But by the end of the year, the Standard and Poor's 500 index - a key economic barometer - was down 38 percent, and major economies were plunging into recession. Even the Queen asked - "Why did no one see it coming?" An even bigger casualty was the credibility of economics, which for decades has claimed that the economy is a rational, stable, efficient machine, governed by well-understood laws. Mathematician David Orrell traces the history of this idea from its roots in ancient Greece to the financial centres of London and New York, shows how it is mistaken, and proposes new alternatives. Economyths explains how the economy is the result of complex and unpredictable processes; how risk models go astray; why the economy is not rational or fair; why no woman has ever won the Nobel Prize for economics; why financial crashes are less Black Swans than part of the landscape; and finally, how new ideas in mathematics, psychology, and environmentalism are helping to reinvent economics.

Since the 1970s North American women and girls have engaged in every sport that interests them and have become champions in their fields. One of the consequences of this success is ongoing criticism, not of how they perform, but of how they look. In Polygendered and Ponytailed, Dayna Daniels argues that the femininity-masculinity divide prevents women athletes from being taken seriously in their sports. As long as sports remains a male domain, girls and women who participate will be viewed as either masculine to begin with or masculine through their involvement. By embracing a polygendered way of being, which emphasizes the similarities between women and men, female athletes will be given the chance to achieve their full sporting potential and be judged for their performance, rather than their appearance.
