Though for centuries fighting was considered primarily a man's job, the world wars of the 20th century demanded women's involvement in the war effort. By World War II women were playing a major auxiliary role in all branches of the armed forces. From the daring female fighter pilots of besieged Russia to the heroic American nurses on the front line, this book looks at the vital jobs that women undertook at a time of national crisis. Numerous fascinating photos and eight full colour plates detail the uniforms and equipment of the British, American German and Russian women who participated in this global conflict.

"Elaine Kahn's poems touch me somewhere deep."--Kim Gordon In Women in Public, the debut full-length collection by poet/musician Elaine Kahn, personal philosophies and collective admissions are put through the corporeal grinder, harnessing the sensual as a medium for the cerebral in order to negotiate the "feminine condition" of being simultaneously othered and consumed. By turns seductive and self-deprecating, Women in Public navigates a world where the erotics of the body and mind do battle against the constructs that would demean and define them, using lyric, fragment, humor, and repetition to create a space flexible enough to hold the many contradictions of reality. Where expectations and desires can be piled too easily upon the body, Kahn digs in her heels, writing in attempt to liberate physical form from society's confines. Praise for Women in Public: "'Do you think that you are greater than a mom?' This is an intensely honest, honestly intense poetry. Humorous, carnal, accusatory, celebratory----Women in Public tells me to get lost so I do. When I find myself later, I'm re-reading Women in Public." ----Rod Smith "In these exhilarating poems, Elaine Kahn shoots from the groin, championing a ferociousness that rages against asperity while playfully seducing the reader to misbehave. Hers is a realm where oceans beat against genitals, and Hannah Wilke warms the earth. I don't want to let go of Women in Public for I want its boldness all to myself."----Dodie Bellamy About the Author: Elaine Kahn is the author of three poetry chapbooks and a contributor to Art Papers. Her music project, Horsebladder, has toured widely. She co-founded the feminist puppet troop P. Splash Collective and is managing editor of flowers & cream press.

Women and Children as Victims and Offenders: Background, Prevention, Reintegration Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This work compiles experiences and lessons learned in§meeting the unique needs of women and children regarding crime prevention and§criminal justice, in particular the treatment and social reintegration of§offenders and serves as a cross-disciplinary work for academic and§policy-making analyses and follow-up in developing and developed countries.§§Furthermore,§it argues for a more humane and effective approach to countering delinquency§and crime among future generations. In a world where development§positively depends on the rule of law and the related investment security, two§global trends may chart the course of development: urbanization and education.§Urbanization will globalize the concepts of "justice" and "fairness"; education§will be dominated by the urban mindset and digital service economy, just as a§culture of lawfulness will. This work looks at crime prevention education§as an investment in the sustainable quality of life of succeeding generations,§and at those who pursue such crime prevention as the providers of much-needed§skills in the educational portfolio. Adopting a reformist approach, this§work collects articles with findings and recommendations that may be relevant§to domestic and international policymaking, including the United Nations§Studies and their educational value for the welfare of coming generations. The§books address the relevant United Nations ideas by combining them with academic§approaches. Guided by the Editors' respective fields of expertise, and in full§recognition of academic freedom and "organized scepticism", it includes§contributions by lawyers, criminologists, sociologists and other eminent§experts seeking to bridge the gap between academic and policy perspectives, as§appropriate, against the international background, including the United Nations§developments._§§The second volume opens with Part IV, which presents§articles on different kinds of crime prevention. The effectiveness of§punishment and, in particular, imprisonment is examined by contrasting it with§alternative sanctions and the following questions are raised: Does harsh§punishment have a crime preventive effect? What are the side effects of§imprisonment on the offenders and their families? Are alternatives, such as§restorative justice or mediation, more effective and cheaper? Part V outlines§proactive strategies of crime prevention, e.g. for potential sex offenders or§in the domain of internet crime. Part VI envisions a more peaceful and§inclusive society, which would be realised by improving the protection of women§and children in their everyday life, and easing the reintegration of those that§have become offenders. The importance of the role played by the UN in§formulating these goals is underlined. The volume concludes with an epilogue of the 70 th§President of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, Martin Sajdik, and§a post scriptum of the editors. §§

Economic and Social Position of Women in the Czechoslovak Republic (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Economic and Social Position of Women in the Czechoslovak Republic Our nation is democratic in its character and filled with love of justice. The whole course of Czech history shows the fine character of Czech women, their goodheartedness, their fine relations to the men, the esteem and hearty collaboration between both sexes. We have a number of mythical and historical women-characters showing this sound kernel of the people; so the three mythical daughters of Krok: Libusa, princess and prophetess in one person, who is believed to have founded Prague; Teta, a priestess and Kazi, a physician. Saint Ludmila, who propagated Christianity, and the prince's daughter Doubravka who married a Polish king and so brought Christianity to Poland. Further we may remember many queens and daughters of our royal families, who were great benefactresses of the people. You know Dagmar, queen of the Danish king Valdemar, whose memory still lives in the songs of Danish peasant; you know Anne, queen of the English king Richard, who was renowned for her good heart and saved by her prayers the life of Wycliff and of the rebellious peasant leaders in the rebellion against the English aristocracy; she was a real mother to the English poor. The Hussites are famous in the whole world. In this most glorious epoch of Czech history - 15th century - the Czech woman was as educated (Aeneas Sylvius, who became later the pope Pius II wrote that every old woman in Tabor knew the Scriptures better than an Italian priest), as full of enthusiasm for the reformation of moral life and as determined to lay down even her life in defence of the known truths and for freedom of thought, as ever was any man. She accompanied her husband into the battle with the whole family, when it became necessary to defend the country and religious freedom. Bohemian Brethren - a church community, who took their origin in the XVth century and were famous for the purity of their life, their piety and nobleness of mind - educated their women to the same extent as men and in the same schools.

Women in Ancient Egypt Amberley Publishing Local

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The lives of Egyptian women were free of the restraints normally placed upon women in the rest of the ancient world, allowing them to exercise a full part in society, recognised as equal with men under the law. Using evidence gleaned from written records, monuments, sculpture, tombpaintings and the material found in tombs, including objects and human remains, Barbara Watterson has built up a fascinating picture of the often overlooked contributions made by women of all classes to the social, and sometimes the political, history of ancient Egypt. In Women in Ancient Egypt, the types of occupations and careers open to women are described, as are their domestic and personal lives - marriage, health and childbirth; family life; running a home; clothing, jewellery and beauty preparations. The women whose lives are fleshed out in this book are largely the 'little people' of history, women who rarely exercised any power outside the domestic sphere. In contrast, however, the final chapter deals with those women, surprisingly few in number, whose influence on the political affairs of their country was considerable and, in some cases, legendary, with a small number of royal women able to ascend the throne of Egypt and rule as female kings.

PoW Camps in Britain - Prisoners, murderers, celebrities, escapees - and football Little has been written about the prisoner of war camps in Britain during the Second World War but Jon and Diane Sutherland's ground-breaking book reveals the dramas behind the camps, including the prisoners who used to escape and dress up as locals to visit the pub before breaking back in every night, vicious murders and the uneasy - or even romantic - relationship between the locals and the prisoners, with some prisoners returning after the war to help finish the work they started on local churches or in the fields. The book is full of fascinating stories and personalities such as: One of the most famous prisoners of war was Bert Trautmann who later became a goalkeeper for Manchester City, even carrying on playing in the 1956 FA Cup final against Birmingham despite breaking his neck during the game Some German escapees boldly stole a plane but had to return to Britain after realising they didn't have enough range to get home, despite managing to refuel at another RAF airfield; other successful escapees sent abusive postcards back to the British camp commanders from Germany Italian prisoners of war turned two Nissen huts into a chapel at Lamb Holm, Orkney Islands Field Marshall Montgomery's mother used to visit Elmfield Camp, near Portadown, when she was a member of the Red Cross Pre-1947, it was illegal for PoWs to have relationships with British women and the women would lose their British nationality and face being deported if they married their PoW boyfriends An estimated 25,000 German former prisoners chose to stay in Britain after the war, although 10,000 were repatriated by order of the Home Secretary. Many returned to Britain at harvest time to help the farms where they'd been forced to work as PoWs There were just two PoW camps at the beginning of the war and over 600 by the end of it. This fascinating book contains a county-by-county directory

Ethelred s mother stood behind him. The archbishop smeared holy oil on Ethelred s shoulders and hands. He gave Ethelred a heavy sword and placed a gold crown on his head. The crown was too big it fell over his eyes, and Ethelred almost dropped the sword on the archbishop s foot. How did Ethelred become king when he was only ten years old? Territory W This unabridged reading by Jim Weiss of the book is 38 minutes on one audio CD, giving second-grade readers insight into the life of this explorer. About the series The classical curriculum introduces even the youngest student to the pleasures of true learning. Elementary students learn history not through predigested textbooks with multiple-choice answers, but through reading the stories of history. Unfortunately, biographies of great men and women of the past are almost all written for older students, limiting the ability of young students to explore history through reading. Libraries are crammed with biographies written for high school students and adults while beginning readers are provided with a shelf full of junior-level books about football players, NASCAR drivers, and movie stars. Now, Peace Hill Press puts real history back into the grasp of the youngest historians with the Who in the World Biography Series. The entries in the series provide young readers and their parents and teachers with biographies of great men and women of the Middle Ages. Designed to be used as part of The Story of the World curriculum, these biographies give beginning historians in grades 2 4 a chance to explore beyond the textbook. The accompanying book is also available separately.

Tattooing the World UNIVERSITY PRESSES

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the 1830s an Irishman named James F. O'Connell acquired a full-body tattoo while living as a castaway in the Pacific. The tattoo featured traditional patterns that, to native Pohnpeians, defined O'Connell's life; they made him wholly human. Yet upon traveling to New York, these markings singled him out as a freak. His tattoos frightened women and children, and ministers warned their congregations that viewing O'Connell's markings would cause the ink to transfer to the skin of their unborn children. In many ways, O'Connell's story exemplifies the unique history of the modern tattoo, which began in the Pacific and then spread throughout the world. No matter what form it has taken, the tattoo has always embodied social standing, aesthetics, ethics, culture, gender, and sexuality. Tattoos are personal and corporate, private and public. They mark the profane and the sacred, the extravagant and the essential, the playful and the political. From the Pacific islands to the world at large, tattoos are a symbolic and often provocative form of expression and communication. Tattooing the World is the first book on tattoo literature and culture. Juniper Ellis traces the origins and significance of modern tattoo in the works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists, travelers, missionaries, scientists, and such writers as Herman Melville, Margaret Mead, Albert Wendt, and Sia Figiel. Traditional Pacific tattoo patterns are formed using an array of well-defined motifs. They place the individual in a particular community and often convey genealogy and ideas of the sacred. However, outside of the Pacific, those who wear and view tattoos determine their meaning and interpret their design differently. Reading indigenous historiography alongside Western travelogue and other writings, Ellis paints a surprising portrait of how culture has been etched both on the human form and on a body of literature.

Cathy Birchall is the first blind person ever to circumnavigate the globe on a motorcycle, covering 26,385 miles, 31 countries and 5 continents with her companion Bernard on their 18 year old BMW. Adventure and courage all the way - from feeling the traffic passing so close it touches you as you ride through Indian cities, to mounting an elephant from the front (yes really!) and climbing Wayna Picchu with its innumerable steps and vertiginous drops, Touching The World takes you on a journey of extraordinary beauty and interest, full of surprises. It is unique in the perspective it takes because it is written from Cathy's point of view, that of a blind woman. "Men do not want you if you are blind, why would you want to be with a blind woman?" asks Neena at the Centre for Blind Women in Delhi as Cathy and Bernard experience some heart wrenching cultural differences where a blind woman was considered doubly afflicted and worthless. Their old BMW motorcycle keeps breaking down and you feel for Bernard as the lights dim in Malaysia and the bike grinds to a halt with a dead battery. But somehow they keep the bike going and in this they were often helped by the unwavering kindness of strangers. From border guards guiding Cathy's hand to the bike to anchor her in a strange place, to Glen helping perform open heart surgery on the bike in the Nullarbor desert, the natural generosity of people is vividly portrayed. Touching The World challenges our perceptions of our own boundaries as well as those of others and portrays vividly just what it means to be blind in a way that has never before been attempted. Cathy and Bernard not only achieve their dream but also set a landmark for us all. "An incredible and inspirational story. Ride, Cathy, ride!" Ted Simon author of Jupiter's Travels. "Cathy's courage has been truly inspirational for many blind and partially sighted people across the world" Stephen Remington, Action for Blind People.
