On July 4, 1990, while on a morning walk in southern France, Susan Brison was attacked from behind, severely beaten, sexually assaulted, strangled to unconsciousness, and left for dead. She survived, but her world was destroyed. Her training as a philosopher could not help her make sense of things, and many of her fundamental assumptions about the nature of the self and the world it inhabits were shattered. At once a personal narrative of recovery and a philosophical exploration of trauma, this book examines the undoing and remaking of a self in the aftermath of violence. It explores, from an interdisciplinary perspective, memory and truth, identity and self, autonomy and community. It offers imaginative access to the experience of a rape survivor as well as a reflective critique of a society in which women routinely fear and suffer sexual violence. As Brison observes, trauma disrupts memory, severs past from present, and incapacitates the ability to envision a future. Yet the act of bearing witness, she argues, facilitates recovery by integrating the experience into the survivor's life's story. She also argues for the importance, as well as the hazards, of using first-person narratives in understanding not only trauma, but also larger philosophical questions about what we can know and how we should live. Bravely and beautifully written, Aftermath is that rare book that is an illustration of its own arguments.

The Aftermath of Feminism
Language: en
Pages: 184
Authors: Angela McRobbie
Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2009 - Publisher: SAGE
In this trenchant inquiry into the state of feminism, Angela McRobbie breaks open the politics of sexual equality and 'affirmative feminism' and sets down a new theory of gender power. Challenging the most basic assumptions of the 'end' of feminism, this book argues that invidious forms of gender re-stabilisation are being re-established. Consumer and popular culture encroach on the terrain of so-called female freedom, appearing supportive of female success, yet tying women into new post-feminist neurotic dependencies. With a scathing critique of 'women's empowerment', McRobbie has developed a distinctive feminist analysis that she uses to examine socio-cultural phenomena embedded in contemporary women's lives: from fashion photography and the television 'make-over' genre to eating disorders, body anxiety and 'illegible rage'. A turning point in feminist theory, The Aftermath of Feminism will set a new agenda for gender studies and cultural studies.

The consequences of the current financial crisis may be uncertain, but they are sure to reach deep into every aspect of society. This collection of essays by international sociologists and social scientists, led by Manuel Castells, explores the likely consequences, including social breakdown, new forms of protest such as the Occupy movement, and the rise of alternative economic cultures. They conclude we are entering a world that is profoundly different from thesocial and economic conditions that characterized the preceding three decades; and that to address this reality, we need nothing less than a complete transformation of the mind-set that led to bankruptcy and despair, and to economies and societies based on an unsustainable model of speculative financeand political irresponsibility.

A Wall Street Journal bestseller Financial expert, investment advisor and New York Times bestselling author James Rickards shows why and how global financial markets are being artificially inflated--and what smart investors can do to protect their assets What goes up, must come down. As any student of financial history knows, the dizzying heights of the stock market can't continue indefinitely--especially since asset prices have been artificially inflated by investor optimism around the Trump administration, ruinously low interest rates, and the infiltration of behavioral economics into our financial lives. The elites are prepared, but what's the average investor to do? James Rickards, the author of the prescient books Currency Wars, The Death of Money, and The Road to Ruin, lays out the true risks to our financial system, and offers invaluable advice on how best to weather the storm. You'll learn, for instance: * How behavioral economists prop up the market: Funds that administer 401(k)s use all kinds of tricks to make you invest more, inflating asset prices to unsustainable levels. * Why digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are best avoided. * Why passive investing has been overhyped: The average investor has been scolded into passively managed index funds.

In this world gone mad…Lily’s biggest challenge is to survive. Lily Starbuck now has a new place to live and a tough taskmaster of a roommate who’s determined to teach her to kick ass—bruises and broken bones be damned. But to add to her to do list, she’s working on getting her new catering business off the ground, finding her partner’s murderer and tracking down that homicidal rogue mage. After being told to stand down by the OS, Lily must find an alternate way to apprehend and question the one man in all of the Twin Cities who wants her dead, regardless of the consequences. But when things go from bad to worse, Lily finds herself embroiled in plots that lead to even more problems. Then, there’s that small problem of overcoming her deep attraction to Talon Sunstrike and making him understand there is no hope for them, while juggling her sexy shaman co-worker and discovering who she used to be? And, yes, Nock, with an agenda of his own, still continues to go invisible on her.
