Women The Family And Freedom 1880 1950

This is the second book in a two-part collection of 264 primary source documents from the Enlightenment to 1950 chronicling the public debate that raged in Europe and America over the role of women in Western society. The present volume looks at the period from 1880 to 1950. The central issues--motherhood, women's legal position in the family, equality of the sexes, the effect on social stability of women's education and labor--extended to women the struggle by men for personal and political liberty. These issues were political, economic, and religious dynamite. They exploded in debates of philosophers, political theorists, scientists, novelists, and religious and political leaders. This collection emphasizes the debate by juxtaposing prevailing and dissenting points of view at given historical moments (e.g. Madame de Staël vs. Rousseau, Eleanor Marx vs. Pope Leo XIII, Strindberg vs. Ibsen, Simone de Beauvoir vs. Margaret Mead). Each section is preceded by a contextual headnote pinpointing the documents significance. Many of the documents have been translated into English for the first time.

In this sultry tale of passion, Linda Cajio reveals how sometimes lust can lead to love. A seducer of countless women, James Farraday likes a challenge. He’s known the elegant, spirited Anne Kitteridge all his life, and has crossed paths with her at polo matches many times. Truth be told, he’s secretly wanted to sleep with the sexy veterinarian for years. But lately Anne has kept him at arm’s length. Undeterred, James devises a plan to get close—close enough to turn on his magnetic charms so that she will have no choice but to fall into his tight embrace. Refusing to be just another conquest, Anne resolved long ago to ignore James’s broad shoulders and blazing blue eyes. So when James hires her to care for his prize-winning horse, Anne sees the proposition as nothing more than a business deal. But Anne soon discovers that she cannot help but be drawn to the soft soul hidden beneath James’s bad-boy demeanor. Still, this handsome rogue has a record of breaking hearts. Can Anne risk becoming a casualty of love? Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Notorious Lady Anne, Along Came Trouble, and Strictly Business.

A top knitwear designer offers thirty-five retro-inspired patterns that put a new spin on fashion’s timeless trends. In fashion, one day you’re in, the next day you’re out . . . and the day after that, you’re back in again. Designers are always referring to fashion’s rich history as they imagine its present and future, and retro looks remain ever-fresh as they are renewed—and restyled—for the next generation of wearers. That’s precisely what top knitwear designer Véronik Avery is up to in Knitting Classic Style. Mining fashion’s endless archive, Avery has created 35 smashingly contemporary garments that take their cues from decades and designers past. The collection of clothing and accessories Avery presents is organized into four thematic chapters that highlight women’s wear, men’s wear (and its influence on women’s and children’s clothing), traditional ethnic garb, and sportswear. Aimed at both beginning and more advanced knitters, the book’s projects range in difficulty from a simple drawstring purse, French beret, and Afghan-inspired slipper-socks to a shawl-collared cardigan, a geometric ski sweater based on a popular 1950s Native American design, and Avery’s own reinterpretation of the trimly elegant Chanel jacket. The author introduces each project by explaining its historical/cultural roots; Sara Cameron’s moody photos evoke the settings that have inspired Avery’s reworkings of the classics.
