The Mary Daly Reader Book Description :

Makes key excerpts from Daly's work accessible to readers who are seeking to access the essence of her thought in a single volume. Outrageous, humorous, inflammatory, Amazonian, intellectual, provocative, controversial, and a discoverer of Feminist word-magic, Mary Daly’s influence on Second Wave feminism was enormous. She burst through constraints to articulate new ways of being female and alive. This comprehensive reader offers a vital introduction to the core of Daly’s work and the complexities secreted away in the pages of her books. Her major theories—Bio-philia, Be-ing as Verb, and the life force within words—and major controversies—relating to race, transgender identity, and separatism—are all covered, and the editors have provided introductions to each selection for context. The text has been crafted to be accessible to a broad readership, without diluting Daly’s witty but complicated vocabulary. Begun in collaboration with Daly while she was still alive, and completed after her death in 2010, the chapters in this book will surprise even those who thought they knew her work. They contain highlights from Mary Daly’s published works over a forty-year span, including her major books Beyond God the Father, Gyn/Ecology, and Pure Lust, as well as smaller articles and excerpts, with additional contributions from Robin Morgan and Mary E. Hunt. Perfect for those seeking an introduction to this path-breaking feminist thinker, The Mary Daly Reader makes key excerpts from her work accessible to new readers as well as those already familiar with her work who are seeking to access the essence of her thought in a single volume.

  • ISBN 10 : LCCN:b68009602

The Church and the Second Sex Book Description :

This book attempts to contribute to the growing understanding of the dimensions of Catholic antifeminism. Although it proposes no instant remedy for an illness of such proportions, it suggests some perspectives in which a cure may be found. Although its chief concern is the problem as it exists in and is perpetuated by the Catholic Church, it never assumes that prejudice within the Church persists without some support from the secular milieu. Ironically, however, the Church in recent times has been in increasingly evident tension with those movements which have been attempting to liberate women.
