SAGE Handbook of Feminist Theory

Alternative Titles
Handbook of Feminist Theory
Feminist Theory
Description

This Handbook provides a comprehensive guide to the issues and debates around conducting relations between women and men, mapping the present and future of thinking about feminist theory. The chapters gathered here present an overview of scholarship in the field, covering: Epistemology and Marginality; Literary, Visual and Cultural Representations; Sexuality; Macro and Microeconomics of Gender; and Conflict and Peace.

The most important consensus in this volume is that a central organizing tenet of feminism is its willingness to examine the ways in which gender and relations between women and men have been (and are) organized. The authors bring a shared commitment to the critical appraisal of gender relations, as well as a recognition that to think ‘theoretically’ is not to detach concerns from lived experience but to extend the possibilities of understanding. Edited by Mary Evans, Clare Hemmings, Marsha Henry, Hazel Johnstone, Sumi Madhok, Ania Plomien & Sadie Wearing.

SAGE Handbook of Human Rights

Alternative Titles
Handbook of human rights
Human rights
Description

The SAGE Handbook of Human Rights comprises a two volume set consisting of more than 50 original chapters that clarify and analyze human rights issues of both contemporary and future importance. The Handbook takes an inter-disciplinary approach, combining work in such traditional fields as law, political science and philosophy with such non-traditional subjects as climate change, demography, economics, geography, urban studies, mass communication, and business and marketing. In addition, as human rights has come to play a prominent role in popular culture, there is a section on human rights in art, film, music and literature. The first volume highlights this mainstreaming of human rights that has taken place, particularly over the course of the past two decades. Volume 2 goes into the international, regional and national mechanisms as well as the future directions of human rights issues and debates. Not only does the Handbook provide a state-of-the-art analysis of the discipline that addresses the history and development of human rights standards and its movements, mechanisms and institutions, but it seeks to go beyond this and produce a book that will help lead to prospective thinking. Edited by Anja Mihr & Mark Gibney.

Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences

Description

The Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences not only conveys a clear sense of how philosophy looks at the social sciences, but also marks out a detailed picture of how the two disciplines are interrelated. The encyclopedia brings forward the ways in which philosophical understanding throws light on the social sciences and, in particular, on their central concepts or key themes, and explores the ways in which each of the different social-scientific subdisciplines handles such concepts and themes by exhibiting diverse responses to the philosophical analysis of its methods. Includes newer efforts to link the traditional branches of philosophy and the social sciences via developments in the area of cognition, such as evolutionary psychology and genetics and evolutionary political science. Topics of the 402 entries include philosophy and anthropology, philosophy and economics, and philosophy and politics. Ed. by Byron Kaldis.

Encyclopedia of Deception

Alternative Titles
Encyclopedia of Lying & Deception
Description

The Encyclopedia of Deception examines lying from multiple perspectives drawn from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology, history, business, political science, cultural anthropology, moral philosophy, theology, law, family studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and more. From the “little white lie,” to lying on a resume, to the grandiose lies of presidents, this two-volume reference explores the phenomenon of lying in a multidisciplinary context to elucidate this common aspect of our daily lives. Not only a cultural phenomenon historically, lying is a frequent occurrence in our everyday lives. Research shows that we are likely to lie or intentionally deceive others several times a day or in one out of every four conversations that lasts more than 10 minutes.

Key Features

  • More than 360 authored by key figures in the field are organized A-to-Z in two volumes, which are available in both print and electronic formats.
  • Entries are written in a clear and accessible style that invites readers to explore and reflect on the use of lying and self-deception.
  • Each article concludes with cross references to related entries and further readings.
