In ancient times older women were the keepers of primal mysteries and were revered for their special wisdom: today there is a feeling that our culture is reawakening to the power of our elders. Joyce Tenneson presents 80 portraits of women aged 65 to 100, who comment on their experiences of ageing.

Who isn¿t seduced by the idea of an affinity between aging and aesthetics? Yet, when does aging truly begin? What attributes does the aesthetic embrace? Looking into startling photographic art of the past three decades, this book is prompted by such questions and turns them into a meditation on how aesthetics mediates our relation to time. The photographic approach of the corporeal is at the center of the book. Within a phenomenological framework, Cristofovici brings into focus the physical and the psychic body to read aging as a process of change and becoming over time. Her understanding of aging sees beyond difference into larger patterns of perceptions that we share. Offering valuable insights into aging as a process of subject construction, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of visual culture, photography, art history, age studies, and theories of knowledge. This cross-disciplinary study that puts theory to the test of life¿s and art¿s paradoxes in an evocative style will also appeal to a wider readership interested in how photography and aging illuminate each other.

Desire, in all of its complexity and excess, defined the American millennial moment. On the surface, to listen to the present political cacophony, things have changed, but not in the way people actually think and behave in private life. Though terror and trauma are said to have gained the upper hand, desire continues to provide the propulsive force of the culture. But how do you paint desire? How do you capture its richness, power, and meaning? This monograph addresses those questions in the process of considering more than fifty major oil paintings made by the American realist Terry Rodgers between 1990 and 2005. Because most of these spectacular paintings are in the hands of private collectors, the best way to get to know them is www.terryrodgers.com, where all of the images reproduced here in black and white are available in color. Rodgers, with upcoming shows scheduled in Amsterdam and Atlanta, is in the midst of a prodigiously productive period and is on the verge of attracting the international critical notice he deserves, and will certainly soon command, owing to his irresistible subject matter, his remarkable technical accomplishment, and his brilliant overall vision of painting and culture.

It often feels chaotic rather than dynamic being a woman. Every day is different. Am I a size 10 today, or a size 14? Do I feel energised or do I feel like crawling under the duvet and watching Eastenders? Even our interest in sex bobs about, seemingly from minute to minute. And we mentally cross off the days when our hormones are in flux - chalking our bad moods up to PMS and waiting impatiently for our bodies to return to 'normal'. But if we are not 'ourselves' for so much of our lives, then who are we? In Consciously Female, Tracey Gaudet gives women the tools and the techniques to consciously reframe what it means to live inside a woman's body. So instead of crossing off the days we feel bad, we will learn to understand them as part of an important cycle which adds emotion and physical feeling to our lives - we will become 'consciously female'. Integrating conventional and alternative medicine, the book provides us with a complete wellness programme, including advice on nutrition, exercise, rituals and mind-body techniques. It's wonderfully positive, practical and inspirational - it's for every woman.

When she was 54, Lisa Knopp’s weight dropped to a number on the scale that she hadn’t seen since seventh grade. The severe food restricting that left her thin and sick when she was 15 and 25 had returned. This time, she was determined to understand the causes of her malady and how she could heal from a condition that is caused by a tangle of genetic, biological, familial, psychological, cultural, and spiritual factors. This compelling memoir, at once a food and illness narrative, explores the forces that cause eating disorders and disordered eating, including the link between those conditions in women, middle-aged and older, and the fear of aging and ageism.

Sie ist klug, elegant und charmant. Eine Kämpferin mit Leidenschaft und Stil. Ein Vorbild für Frauen seit fünf Jahrzehnten. Hillary Clinton verehrt sie genauso wie die Schauspielerin Emma Watson. Lange vor Facebook-Chefin Sheryl Sandberg hat Gloria Steinem Frauen den Glauben an sich selbst gegeben. Sie hat provoziert, Mut gemacht und alte Rollenbilder über den Haufen geworfen. Auch heute noch, mit über achtzig Jahren, ist Gloria Steinem ein Star, der Frauen jeder Generation begeistert. In MY LIFE ON THE ROAD erzählt Steinem von einem rastlosen Leben, ausgefüllt mit Reisen und unvergesslichen Begegnungen. Schon als Kind, als Tochter eines durch die Lande tingelnden Antiquitätenhändlers aus Toledo, Ohio, war ihr eines klar geworden: Man braucht nicht unbedingt einen geografischen Anker im Leben, dafür aber ein klares Ziel vor Augen.
