Author: Bernard Chapin
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9780595443604
Release Date: 2007-09
Genre: Social Science

In Women: Theory and Practice, Bernard Chapin challenges the accepted theories of feminism and sexual equality in this thought-provoking, revolutionary look at the battle of the sexes in the twenty-first century. This book captures the true essence of today's apocryphal gap between men and women and how it affects not only the workplace, but also romantic relationships and the interactions of men and women everywhere. Chapin introduces a truly contrarian argument against society's current atmosphere of political correctness. He also makes a convincing case for the hidden damage caused by the women's movement and the popular mindset that women are no longer just the fairer sex, they are the better sex. Chapin questions the rationale behind policies and laws created to protect women's rights and to construct equality in the workplace. Chapin describes society's current backlash against men and how it has created a culture that has wrongly declared women to be intellectually, morally, and emotionally superior. Women: Theory and Practice provides a clear, rational argument against a popular socio-political atmosphere that has turned women into demi-gods, and men into second class citizens.

International Humanitarian Law Theory Practice Context

Author: Daniel Thürer
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers
ISBN: 9789004179103
Release Date: 2011-07-11
Genre: Law

This book is about international humanitarian law or - as it is also called - the "law of armed conflict"or "law of war". It emerged from a series of lectures delivered at the Hague Academy of International Law. The author deals with war and the means by which international law attempts to contain and, as it were, "humanize" organized violence. But the ambitions of the author go beyond the battlefield. The book explores the many complex ways in which law functions to regulate warfare, in theory and practice. The author looks into treaties and other sources of international law, but he also tries to step outside the boundaries of "black-letter law"to deal broadly with such matters as the influence of culture in shaping the norms on war, the institutions that develop those norms and work for their universal acceptance, the networks of humanitarian actors in this area and the legal procedures in which the law of war and its various institutions are embedded. The book demonstrates that even wars are, in various ways, conducted in "the shadow of the law".

Queering Translation Translating the Queer

Author: Brian James Baer
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781315505954
Release Date: 2017-09-22
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This groundbreaking work is the first full book-length publication to critically engage in the emerging field of research on the queer aspects of translation and interpreting studies. The volume presents a variety of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives through fifteen contributions from both established and up-and-coming scholars in the field to demonstrate the interconnectedness between translation and queer aspects of sex, gender, and identity. The book begins with the editors’ introduction to the state of the field, providing an overview of both current and developing lines of research, and builds on this foundation to look at this research more closely, grouped around three different sections: Queer Theorizing of Translation; Case Studies of Queer Translations and Translators; and Queer Activism and Translation. This interdisciplinary approach seeks to not only shed light on this promising field of research but also to promote cross fertilization between these disciplines towards further exploring the intersections between queer studies and translation studies, making this volume key reading for students and scholars interested in translation studies, queer studies, politics, and activism, and gender and sexuality studies.
