From Feminine Mystique to Girl Power: A Sexual Revolution Odyssey

by Jerry Craig

Perhaps nothing has reshaped our culture more profoundly in the 20th (and now 21st) century than the sexual revolution. With the advent of rock and roll in the fifties, the strictures of the war years began to give way to a more visceral, spontaneous, free-flowing youth culture that shattered some of the old rules of social decorum and propriety. The sixties further upset the applecart with a countercultural explosion that left the older generation baffled and estranged from its offspring. Alongside the new music and the proliferation of mind-altering substances were political upheavals, with the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war drawing many of the Dr. Spock generation into full-scale rebellion against the existing order. Out of this hodgepodge of social forces emerged the ...

Chinatown No More: Taiwan Immigrants in Contemporary New York (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Hsiang-Shui Chen

By focusing on the social and cultural life of post-1965 Taiwan immigrants in Queens, New York, this book shifts Chinese American studies from ethnic enclaves to the diverse multiethnic neighborhoods of Flushing and Elmhurst. As Hsiang-shui Chen documents, the political dynamics of these settlements are entirely different from the traditional closed Chinese communities; the immigrants in Queens think of themselves as living in "worldtown," not in a second Chinatown. Drawing on interviews with members of a hundred households, Chen brings out telling aspects of demography, immigration experience, family life, and gender roles, and then turns to vivid, humanistic portraits of three families. Chen also describes the organizational life of the Chinese in Queens with a lively account of the powe...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...

Eiderdown

Over the centuries eiderdown has been coveted by the Vikings, Russian tsars and medieval tax collectors who accepted it as revenue. The plumage of a fat sea duck, eiderdown – treasured for its extraordinary lightness and insulation – now joins cocaine as an instrument of globalisation and commodity of the super-rich.In this revelatory essay, Edward Posnett travels to the Westfjords region of Iceland to explore the fragile relationship between Icelanders and the duck. Eiderdown harvesting began with the arrival of Norse settlers in the 9th century, and it is now stuffed into pillows, duvets and clothing which sell for thousands of pounds in Japan, China, Germany and Russia. What might at first appear an idyllic pastime becomes a story of compromise and exploitation. Posnett’s finely ...

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

Despite the prevalence of warfare and conflict in early medieval society, and a veritable industry of medieval historians studying it, there has in fact been very little attention paid to the subject of head wounds and facial damage in the course of war and/or punitive justice. The impact of acquired disfigurement —for the individual, and for her or his family and community—is barely registered, and only recently has there been any atte...

To most of us, it means something related to Ireland. We think of intricately designed Irish crosses, four-leaf clovers, and some of the more well-known stories of Celtic mythology. However, while Celtic culture has stayed alive in Ireland, its roots run much deeper, and they extend much farther than the small island nation off the coast of modern-day Great Britain. The story of the Celts is one of a rapid rise to prominence followed by a slow decline due to the influence of the Romans. But even so, Celtic culture has remained strong in Europe and has been able to persist to this day. So, even though the Celts represent just a small part o...

GUN CONTROL: What's the answer?

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

Why is there such controversy about gun control? One side says, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” The other side believes that if no one had guns the world would be a much safer place. Who is right? In this little book of about 22,500-words, I look at the argument and see if either side is right and if not what the answer really is. Why am I qualified to write this book? I grew up in the fifties and sixties when the world was much different. Murder was almost not known in the towns and cities where I lived. Now anytime you turn on the local news, there has been a murder, an attempted murder or a robbery. I have also been an author and outdoor writer for many years. I have also owned and used many different types of firearms and have written about them. What I w...

The Pathologisation of Homosexuality in Fascist Italy: The Case of 'G' (Genders and Sexualities in History)

by Gabriella Romano

This open access book investigates the pathologisation of homosexuality during the fascist regime in Italy through an analysis of the case of G., a man with "homosexual tendencies" interned in the Collegno mental health hospital in 1928. No systematic study exists on the possibility that Fascism used internment in an asylum as a tool of repression for LGBT people, as an alternative to confinement on an island, prison or home arrests. This research offers evidence that in some cases it did.The book highlights how the dictatorship operated in a low-key, shadowy and undetectable manner, bending pre-existing legislation. Its brutality was - and still is - difficult to prove. It also emphasises the ways in which existing stereotypes on homosexuality were reinforced by the regime propaganda in s...
