The hormone myth - how junk science, gender politics & lies about PMS keep women down by DeLuca, Robyn Stein, author. The hormone myth - how junk science, gender politics & lies about PMS keep women down

"Although the idea that women become raving lunatics when their hormones fluctuate is firmly entrenched in American culture, a thorough examination of the evidence overwhelmingly tells us otherwise. This provocative book exposes the pervasive myths aboutwomen's hormones--which lead to false beliefs about women's competence--by illustrating how flawed, obsolete research and sexism have combined to keep women "in their place," and skillfully shows how women can reject the "hormone myth" and own th

The human city - urbanism for the rest of us by Kotkin, Joel, [ author] The human city - urbanism for the rest of us

"In The Human City, internationally recognized urbanist Joel Kotkin challenges the conventional urban-planning wisdom that favors high-density, "pack-and-stack" strategies. By exploring the economic, social, and environmental benefits of decentralized, family-friendly alternatives, Kotkin concludes that while the word "suburbs" may be outdated, the concept is certainly not dead. Aside from those wealthy enough to own spacious urban homes, people forced into high-density development must accept

The lion in winter - a play by Goldman, James. The lion in winter - a play

"Insecure siblings fighting for their parents? attention; bickering spouses who can?t stand to be together or apart; adultery and sexual experimentation; even the struggle to balance work and family: These are themes as much at home in our time as they were in the twelfth century. In James Goldman?s classic play The Lion in Winter, domestic turmoil rises to an art form. Keenly self-aware and motivated as much by spite as by any sense of duty, Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine maneuver against ea

The meaning of belief - religion from an atheist's point of view by Crane, Tim, author. The meaning of belief - religion from an atheist's point of view

Contemporary debate about religion seems to be going nowhere. Atheists persist with their arguments, many plausible and some unanswerable, but these make no impact on religious believers. Defenders of religion find atheists equally unwilling to cede ground. The Meaning of Belief offers a way out of this stalemate. An atheist himself, Tim Crane writes that there is a fundamental flaw with most atheists' basic approach: religion is not what they think it is. Atheists tend to treat religion as a ki

The one you get - portrait of a family organism by Tougaw, Jason Daniel, author. The one you get - portrait of a family organism

"In The One You Get: Portrait of a Family Organism, Jason Tougaw marries neuroscience and family lore to tell his story of growing up gay in 1970s Southern California, raised by hippies who had "dropped out" in the late sixties and couldn't seem to find their way back in. "There's something wrong with our blood," the family mantra ran, "and it affects our brains" -- a catchall answer for incidents such as Tougaw's schizophrenic great-grandfather directing traffic in the nude on the Golden Gate B

The peanut allergy epidemic - what's causing it and how to stop it by Fraser, Heather A., author. The peanut allergy epidemic - what's causing it and how to stop it

Why is the peanut allergy an epidemic that only seems to be found in western cultures? More than four million people in the United States alone are affected by peanut allergies, while there are few reported cases in India, a country where peanut is the primary ingredient in many baby food products. Where did this allergy come from, and does medicine play any kind of role in the phenomenon? After her own child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter, historian Heather Fraser decided to disc
