Thresholds In Feminist Geography from the Author: John Paul Jones. This innovative collection explores the concept of space as it relates to feminist studies. Utilizing a range of theoretical perspectives, a distinguished group of international scholars crosses over the 'thresholds' of difference, methodology, and representation that challenge feminist geography. The contributors extend our understanding of spatial connections, including the role of social space in the construction of gendered and sexed identities, the need to sensitize feminist methodology to 'place' contexts, and the importance of examining representations as sociopolitical and spatial artifacts. This volume has broad interdisciplinary appeal while pointing in specific directions for new research areas, new thresholds, within the discipline of geography.

The Home Entrepreneur Systems Model from the Author: Ronald Pierce-Lyons. Written in plain English, this easy to read book chronicles a PhD student’s journey of exploration into the lives of everyday people who describe themselves as home-base business operators. It is a must-read for anyone wanting to experience a step by step account of a research project utilising Grounded Theory methodology. From an initial research question, it documents the research process through data collection and analysis to the findings which are presented in the form of a model. The Home Entrepreneur Systems model which emerged from this project considers home-based business as existing on physical, social, biological and psychological dimensions which interact with lifestyle needs of security, autonomy, balance, meaning and community. The model offers a systems approach to understanding human needs met through the operation of home business and introduces the concept of home entrepreneurship as a unique aspect of entrepreneurship theory.

Irish Women And Irish Migration from the Author: Patrick O'Sullivan. This fourth volume of the series focuses on the the experiences of Irish women migrants, who often formed the majority of migrating groups. It covers both mass and individual migrations from the 16th to the 20th century. Strong stress is placed upon the economic decision-making of female-headed households, and persistent motives for migration, eg incest, throughout the period. Advanced and subtle methods have had to be devised and implemented in order to study this "hidden majority"; therfore, the book has much of particular interest to women's history groups and women's studies courses.

Gendering Orientalism from the Author: Reina Lewis. In contrast to most cultural histories of imperialism, which analyse Orientalist images of rather than by women, Gendering Orientalism focuses on the contributions of women themselves. Drawing on the little-known work of Henriette Browne, other `lost' women Orientlist artists and the literary works of George Eliot, Reina Lewis challenges masculinist assumptions relating to the stability and homogeneity of the Orientalist gaze. Gendering Orientalism argues that women did not have a straightforward access to an implicitly nale position of western superiority, Their relationship to the shifting terms of race, nation and gender produced positions from which women writers and artists could articulate alternative representations of racial difference. It is this different, and often less degrading, gaze on the Orientalized `Other' that is analysed in this book. By revealing the extent of women's involvement in the popular field of visual Orientalism and highlighting the presence of Orientalist themes in the work of Browne, Eliot and Charlotte Bronte, reina Lewis uncovers women's roles in imperial culture and discourse. Gendering Orientalism will appeal to students, lecturers and researchers in cultural studies, literature, art history, women's studies and anthropology.
