<b>Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, <i>Sister Outsider </i>celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. </b><br /><br />In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde-scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published. <br /><br />These landmark writings are, in Lorde's own words, a call to “never close our eyes to the terror, to the chaos which is Black which is creative which is female which is dark which is rejected which is messy which is...”<br /><br />“[Lorde's] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware.” <b>—<i>New York Times </i></b>

<B>“A bracing look at the often-strange relationship between sexuality and the legal system over six tumultuous decades” (<I>Booklist</I>).</B><BR />  <BR /> Society’s acceptance of sex and the grasp of its many variables are in constant flux. Switch a decade, cross a border, or traverse class lines and the harmless pleasures of one group become the gravest crimes in another. Combining meticulous research and lively storytelling, this “eye-opening history of sexual legislation” traces the fast-moving blood sport of sex law over the past century. It challenges our most cherished notions about family, power, gender, and identity, and proves that nothing sparks intolerance—on the left and the right—more than sex (<I>Publishers Weekly </I>Starred Review).<BR />  <BR /> Starting when courts censored birth control information as pornography and let men rape their wives, and continuing through the “sexual revolution” and into the present day (when sexual assault, gay rights, sex trafficking, and sex on the internet saturate the news), legal scholar Eric Berkowitz explores how the law has remained out of synch with the convulsive changes in sexual morality. “In lively, passionate prose, [he] shows how irrational, unjust, and destructive even well-intentioned attempts to legislate lust can be. This controversial book is as mind-blowing as it is heart-opening” (Christopher Ryan, author of <I>Sex at Dawn</I>).

The memoir and first book from the author of the beloved <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Cutting for Stone</i>.<BR><BR>Nestled in the Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee, the town of Johnson City had always seemed exempt from the anxieties of modern American life. But when the local hospital treated its first AIDS patient, a crisis that had once seemed an “urban problem” had arrived in the town to stay.<BR> <BR>Working in Johnson City was Abraham Verghese, a young Indian doctor specializing in infectious diseases. Dr. Verghese became by necessity the local AIDS expert, soon besieged by a shocking number of male and female patients whose stories came to occupy his mind, and even take over his life. Verghese brought a singular perspective to Johnson City: as a doctor unique in his abilities; as an outsider who could talk to people suspicious of local practitioners; above all, as a writer of grace and compassion who saw that what was happening in this conservative community was both a medical and a spiritual emergency.<BR> <BR>Out of his experience comes a startling but ultimately uplifting portrait of the American heartland as it confronts—and surmounts—its deepest prejudices and fears.

<strong></strong>As a teenager and young man, Justin Lee felt deeply torn. Nicknamed "God Boy" by his peers, he knew that he was called to a life in the evangelical Christian ministry. But Lee harbored a secret: He also knew that he was gay. In this groundbreaking book, Lee recalls the events--his coming out to his parents, his experiences with the "ex-gay" movement, and his in-depth study of the Bible--that led him, eventually, to self-acceptance. <br /><br />But more than just a memoir, TORN provides insightful, practical guidance for all committed Christians who wonder how to relate to gay friends or family members--or who struggle with their own sexuality. Convinced that "in a culture that sees gays and Christians as enemies, gay Christians are in a unique position to bring peace," Lee demonstrates that people of faith on both sides of the debate can respect, learn from, and love one another.<br />

Contemplate the time, energy, and effort required to read nearly 400 studies on same-sex parenting. Add to this investment scores of meticulous statistical examinations by a razor-sharp quantitative methodologist. Finally, throw in a propensity for academic heresy — or intellectual courage, for sometimes they are the same. The result is Same-Sex Parenting Research: A Critical Assessment.

<DIV><B>From the groundbreaking author of <I>The </I><I>Second Sex </I>comes a radical argument for ethical responsibility and freedom.</B><BR /><BR /> In this classic introduction to existentialist thought, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir’s <I>The Ethics of Ambiguity</I> simultaneously pays homage to and grapples with her French contemporaries, philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, by arguing that the freedoms in existentialism carry with them certain ethical responsibilities. De Beauvoir outlines a series of “ways of being” (the adventurer, the passionate person, the lover, the artist, and the intellectual), each of which overcomes the former’s deficiencies, and therefore can live up to the responsibilities of freedom. Ultimately, de Beauvoir argues that in order to achieve true freedom, one must battle against the choices and activities of those who suppress it. <BR /><BR /><I>The Ethics of Ambiguity</I> is the book that launched Simone de Beauvoir’s feminist and existential philosophy. It remains a concise yet thorough examination of existence and what it means to be human.</DIV><DIV><BR />  </DIV>

<i>Vestida de azul</i> de Antonio Giménez-Rico fue el <b>primer documental español</b> protagonizado por seis mujeres transexuales que se estrenó en salas comerciales. Hoy, 35 años después y con la perspectiva que da el paso del tiempo, la periodista Valeria Vegas analiza cómo los medios y el cine abordaban la transexualidad en una época verdaderamente hostil para un colectivo tan expuesto como minoritario. A través de las circunstancias que rodearon a Eva, Loren, Tamara, Josette, Nacha y Renée, la autora indaga en aspectos como la prostitución, el espectáculo, la exclusión social o las leyes opresoras. Sus vidas son también las de otras muchas mujeres para las que no siempre la democracia fue sinónimo de libertad.
