Feminist Perspectives on Politics considers how feminist perspectives have considerably broadened the scope of what is considered 'political'. Themes and issues covered range from nineteenth century debates around women's equality and liberation, to twentieth century arguments and activities towards gaining a more nuanced understanding of women's differences and diversity. ' Difference' remains a key term in contemporary feminisms, and the author examines debates engendered from women's liberation politics to open up discussion of Black feminisms, lesbian politics and disabled feminist agendas. Formal political participation and the impact of women's movement politics are assessed in global comparisons as are the debates surrounding discourses on 'development' and transnational politics, and the influence of women at local, national and international levels. The book will be essential reading for students at all levels across the fields of Politics, Women's Studies, Sociology, History, Cultural Studies, Political Economy and 'Development' Studies more generally (such as in studies concerned with anti-racism, gender, social policy and the history of ideas within educational institutions, local government and voluntary organisations)

When addressed in its full reactive potential, gender has a tendency to unfix the reassuring certainties of education and academia. Gender pedagogy unfolds as an account of teaching gender learning that is rooted in Derrida's concept of the 'trace', reflecting the unfixing properties of gender and even shaking up academic knowledge production.

There has been an outpouring of discussion and interest in recent years on gender and sexual identities in the disciplines of sociology and women's studies. Now, for the first time, there is a reader available that bridges the study of both gender and sexuality, providing a thoroughexamination of their interconnections. In an accessible format, the editors of The New Basics construct a new model for making sense of gender and sexuality by raising provocative questions such as: How has our understanding of the relationship among sex, gender, and sexuality changed over time?How are these concepts constructed differently across cultures? What is the difference between transgender, transsexual, and queer? How does class and race shape people's experiences and expressions of gender and sexuality? While exploring a wide range of issues, each piece makes the relationship among sex, gender, and sexual identities central to the analysis. The New Basics includes first-person accounts and narratives, poems, theoretical analyses, and critiques of existing research. Due to the evolution of thoughtand terminology in recent years, the editors have included a useful and unique glossary of basic and new terms.

The last two decades have brought profound changes and most Canadians who experienced this period in our history marked them as a crucial turning point in the evolution of Canadian society. Each day, the media provided evidence of the growing tension around such pivotal issues as the need for trade unions in a post-industrial, information society, the violence of racism in urban centres, gender inequalities, poverty, the economic, political and environmental fall-out from U.S. governmental policies, and the relationship, if any, of Quebec in Canadian Confederation. Canadians across the country recognize that they are faced with a rapidly changing and increasingly more complex world. The basic theme that connects all the contributions to this text are problems and issues of inequality. The first section introduces the reader to three crucial issues currently challenging Canada: the role that trade unions can and will play in shaping the future; the gap between the rich andthe poor; and the difficulty in ameliorating racial tensions. Section two turns its attention to institutions in crisis, examining the role of the state in alleviating social strains and conflict, public education and under-employment in the Information Age, and the nature of crime and criminality in Canada. The final section introduces the role of specific social movement and their struggles for social justice. Taken as a whole, the essays contained in this volume provide the basis for serious consideration of what form Canadians want their country to take as we face the hard truths and meet the challenges that confront us.

Little attention has traditionally been given to theorising heterosexuality. Heterosexuality tends to be taken for granted, as something that is 'natural' and 'normal'. Theorising Heterosexuality questions this assumption and demonstrates how much of our understanding of ourselves and the social worlds we inhabit is based upon unquestioned assumptions about the nature of heterosexuality. In what ways does heterosexuality encode and structure everyday life? How does heterosexuality shape our sense of identity? What is the nature of heterosexual desire? What is the relationship between heterosexuality and feminism? In addition to addressing these questions, the contributors to Theorising Heterosexuality provide a critical examination of recent debates about heterosexuality, in particular within postmodern, feminist and queer theory.

Much of the literature on mixed-methods research is highly dispersed in a wide variety of journals and other publications. A great deal of it is not well known and quite a lot of it is inaccessible. Alan Bryman, widely recognized as an authority on the subject, brings together the key articles in this important field. Volume I is concerned with outlining the epistemological and ontological issues relating to the debate about quantitative and qualitative research and how these have an impact on the possibility of mixing methods. Volume II is concerned with the combination of different methods within quantitative research and within qualitative research. Volume III addresses the methodological issues involved in combining quantitative and qualitative research - the different ways in which mixed-methods research is actually accomplished. Volume IV continues the kinds of material used in Volume III but will also include some examples of combining quantitative and qualitative research.
