This women's history classic brilliantly exposed the constraints imposed on women in the name of science and exposes the myths used to control them. Since the the nineteenth century, professionals have been invoking scientific expertise to prescribe what women should do for their own good. Among the experts’ diagnoses and remedies: menstruation was an illness requiring seclusion; pregnancy, a disabling condition; and higher education, a threat to long-term health of the uterus. From clitoridectomies to tame women’s behavior in the nineteenth century to the censure of a generation of mothers as castrators in the 1950s, doctors have not hesitated to intervene in women’s sexual, emotional, and maternal lives. Even domesticity, the most popular prescription for a safe environment for woman, spawned legions of “scientific” experts. Barbara Ehrenreich and Dierdre English has never lost faith in science itself, butinsist that we hold those who interpret it to higher standards. Women are entering the medical and scientific professions in greater numbers but as recent research shows, experts continue to use pseudoscience to tell women how to live. For Her Own Good provides today’s readers with an indispensable dose of informed skepticism.

Muriel Ostensen, handsome, clever, and a bitch, has no desire to get married. Broderick Gramiren, natural son of the king, has other ideas for her, and so does her family. In the wake of a shocking royal assassination, Broderick maneuvers secretly to become his father's official heir. But first, he just needs the right wife to help press his case. The Duke of Severn's daughter would be the perfect woman to help Broderick in his quest, especially with his father, the king, pressuring him to marry. Muriel, however, loves her independence, and she feels her family is selling her short by trying to marry her to a bastard, even if he is the king's bastard. If she has one scheme to avoid marrying Broderick, she has a dozen, but Broderick might just have a dozen and one. Book 2 in the political fantasy series Of Duty and Silver, For Her Own Good picks up where The Queen's Tower left off, but it can also be read as a standalone romance.

A steamy new adult romance. Contains mature content. Catalina Martinez is used to being alone. Only seventeen when her mother died, Lina has since built her life around a single purpose: honoring her mother’s legacy by seizing every opportunity her mother worked herself to the bone to provide. Now a college student, Lina is ambivalent when she lands a part-time job that sounds too good to be true. The hours are flexible and won’t interfere with her studies, allowing her to maintain her grades and keep her scholarships, and the pay is generous. However, she’ll be helping restore an old mansion, doing the kind of physical labor her mother was determined to prevent her daughter from having to do. When she meets Byron Eaton, her new boss, he opens up a whole new world of additional complications—and possibilities. Not only is he young, rich, and gorgeous, he’s the first person Lina has felt a connection with since losing her mother. Her growing attraction to him threatens to overrule her misgivings, but even so she can’t shake her discomfort over the contrasts between his privileged upbringing and her hardscrabble life, not to mention how reluctant he is to talk about his family. Just as she’s finally on the verge of reaping the rewards of her years of hard work, she finds herself on shaky ground. Does Byron trust her enough to tell her the truth about his past, or will his secrets prove too great an obstacle for their love to overcome?

"If you enjoy these too-good-to-be-true tales, Brunvand's new book will give you hours of pleasure."—Chicago Tribune A fabulously entertaining book from the ultimate authority on those almost believable tales that always happen to a "friend of a friend." Alligators in the sewers? A pet in the microwave? A tragic misunderstanding of the function of cruise control? No, it didn't really happen to your friend's sister's neighbor: it's an urban legend. And no matter how savvy you think you are, you are sure to find in this collection of over 200 tales at least one story you would have sworn was true. Jan Harold Brunvand has been collecting and studying this modern folklore for over twenty years. In Too Good to Be True he captures the best stories in their best retellings, along with their latest variations and examples of how the stories have changed as they move from person to person and place to place. To help you find your favorite, Brunvand has arranged the tales thematically. "Bringing Up Baby" is full of episodes of child-rearing gone wrong, including the grisly tale of the drugged out baby-sitter who mistakes the kid for a turkey. "Funny Business" showcases stories of infamous lapses in customer service, such as the story of the shockingly expensive chocolate chip cookie recipe. And "The Criminal Mind" features both brilliant --if they were real --scams, as well as the purported antics of the less mentally gifted. Whether you want to become an expert debunker or just have plenty of laughs, this book will surprise and entertain you. Illustrated throughout. "Informative and entertaining.... Brunvand has collected more than 200 of the most-repeated and best-known examples of modern folk-myth."—Tampa Tribune "[N]ot only an entertaining anthology, but an excellent introduction to the study of folklore itself."—Publishers Weekly "A fun read... .

This book provides the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex in study designs, methods, and analysis in health research. In order to produce ethical, accurate, and effective research findings it is vital to integrate both sex (biological characteristics) and gender (socially constructed factors) into any health study. This book draws attention to some of the methodological complexities in this enterprise and offers ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines.

When he was three, in the early 1970s, Benjamin Anastas found himself in his mother's fringe-therapy group in Massachusetts, a sign around his neck: Too Good to Be True. The phrase haunted him through his life, even as he found the literary acclaim he sought after his 1999 novel, An Underachiever's Diary, had made the smart set take notice. Too Good to Be True is his deeply moving memoir of fathers and sons, crushing debt and infidelity - and the first, cautious steps taken toward piecing a life back together. 'It took a long time for me to admit I had failed' Anastas begins. Broke, his promising literary career evaporated, he's hounded by debt collectors as he tries to repair a life ripped apart by the spectacular implosion of his marriage, which ended when his pregnant wife left him for another man. Had it all been too good to be true? Anasta's fierce love for his young son forces him to confront his own childhood, fraught with mental illness and divorce. His father's disdain for money might have been in line with the '70s zeitgeist - but what does it mean when you're dumping change into a Coinstar machine, trying to scrounge enough to buy your son a meal? Charged with rage and despair, humour and hope, this unforgettable book is about losing one's way and finding it again, and the redemptive power of art.

The vision for Too Good, Yet So True! was given to me by the Lord Jesus Christ. It showed the Lord's faithfulness during my time of persecution, tribulations and trials after my conversion to Christianity. When it came to making a choice, as painful as it was to be rejected by loved ones, after so many failed attempts to stand up for Jesus for fear of persecution, it became evident to me that it was either now or never. I had no other choice but to choose Jesus and face rejection. Through it all, God's grace kept me as I held fast, and I am still holding on to my faith in Christ. "The author does not pretend to be a sophisticated writer; rather, she has used personal experiences to unveil timeless truths from the Scriptures. Her personal trials and triumphs will encourage anyone whose faith in God is under threat. She does not make assumptions, no; this book outgrows such pettiness. She presents the case as it is, a rare ability in an age where the autobiographical text is often embellished for artistic purposes. This book, Too Good, Yet So True!, is God's simple way of bringing dynamic transformation across your way. Your walk with God is not complete without reading this book." --Funso Orimoloye, Research in Culture and Human Development, USA "This is a must-read for all. It is a rare gift to the whole world!" --Pastor Oluwayomi Obadimeji

Dead. Some evils are so great that they transcend death. In Brandon Massey's "The Patriarch," a young writer travels to the hushed backwoods of Mississippi, where dangerous secrets surface as a generations-old feud comes to bone-chilling new life. . . Buried. The souls of the mistreated always find a way to be heard. In L.A. Banks's "Ev'ry Shut Eye Ain't Sleep," violent visions haunt a man--until he's handed an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past and prevent unspeakable acts from occurring once again. . . Forgotten. When horrors are covered up and lost, our ancestors must find a way--even in death--to tell their tales. In Tananarive Due's "Ghost Summer," ancestors haunt the nights of two children. And when a grisly discovery is made, these ancestors will make their mark on both the dead and the living. . . "Massey ventures into areas unexplored by most other black novelists. The result is artful and stunning." --Chicago Tribune "Tananarive Due is creating classics." --Tina McElroy Ansa "Banks's writing is lush and detailed, fully bringing her characters to life (or unlife), weaving a complex world of Good vs. Evil with its own intricate hierarchy." --Fangoria Magazine

Social drinking is an accepted aspect of working life in Japan, and women are left to manage their drunken husbands when the men return home, restoring them to sobriety for the next day of work. In attempting to cope with their husbands' alcoholism, the women face a profound cultural dilemma: when does the nurturing behavior expected of a good wife and mother become part of a pattern of behavior that is actually destructive? How does the celebration of nurturance and dependency mask the exploitative aspects not just of family life but also of public life in Japan? The Too-Good Wife follows the experiences of a group of middle-class women in Tokyo who participated in a weekly support meeting for families of substance abusers at a public mental-health clinic. Amy Borovoy deftly analyzes the dilemmas of being female in modern Japan and the grace with which women struggle within a system that supports wives and mothers but thwarts their attempts to find fulfillment outside the family. The central concerns of the book reach beyond the problem of alcoholism to examine the women's own processes of self-reflection and criticism and the deeper fissures and asymmetries that undergird Japanese productivity and social order.

In this groundbreaking, bestselling graphic memoir, Alison Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late father. In her hands, personal history becomes a work of amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and heartbreaking detail. Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the "Fun Home." It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve.
