Glass Ceilings And Dirt Floors: Women, Work, And The Global Economy

by Christine Firer Hinze

Today's market economy depends upon, yet undervalues, the essential contributions of households to the care work that makes all other work possible. As designated tenders of the care economy, women take daily, costly responsibility for a fundamental fact that mainstream economics underplays or conceals, market economy depends continuously on another economy, wherein our embodied vulnerabilities are respected and addressed by way of caring labor and relationships. In this compelling expose on the (in)justice of women's work, Christine Firer Hinze argues for re-prioritizing the holistic understanding of economy as oikonomia-literally, the management of a household in order to sustainably provide for all members-assumed in traditional classical, and contemporary political economics. This oikos-focused paradigm addresses global work-family struggles at their roots by shifting the axis of our economic imaginations, values, and policy making from a marketized-competitive model to one that prioritizes economy's inclusive, provisioning purposes. Following several years of working in inner-city ministry and teaching high school in Detroit, Christine Firer Hinze received a PhD in Christian social ethics from the University of Chicago Divinity School. Her research and teaching focus on Catholic social and economic ethics, women and work, and power and social transformation. Book jacket.

Religions Of Late Antiquity In Practice

by Richard Valantasis

This is an unprecedented collection of nearly seventy Late Antique primary religious texts. These texts--all in new English translation and many appearing in English for the first time--represent every major religious current from the late first century until the rise of Islam. Produced through the efforts of thirty-six leading scholars in the field, they constitute a comprehensive view of religious practice in Late Antiquity. Religious life and performance during this period comprised diverse, often unusual practices. Philosophical ascent, magic, legal pronouncement, hymnography, dietary and sexual restriction, and rhetoric were all part of this deeply fascinating world. Religious and political identity often intertwined, as reflected in the Roman persecution of Christians. And a fluid boundary between religion and superstition was contested in daily life. Many practices, including ascetic training, crossed religious boundaries. Others, such as "incubation" at specific temples and certain divination rites, were distinctive practices of individual groups and orders. Intrinsically interesting, the practice of religion in the Late Antique also edifies modern-day religious life. As this volume shows, the origins of the contemporary Western religious terrain can be gleaned in this period. Rabbinic Judaism flourished and spread. Christianity developed still-important theological categories and structures. And even movements that did not survive intact--such as Neoplatonism and the once-powerful Manichaean churches--continue to influence religion today. This rich sourcebook includes discussions of asceticism, religious organization, ritual, martyrdom, religion's social implications, law, and theology. Its unique emphasis on practice and its inclusion of texts translated from lesser-known languages advance the study of religious history in several directions. A strong interdisciplinary orientation will reward scholars and students of religion, theology, gender studies, classical literatures, and history. Each text is accompanied by an introduction and a bibliography for further reading and research, making the book appropriate for use in any university or seminary classroom.

Statistics (Fourth Edition)

by David Friedman Robert Pisani Roger Purves

We are going to tell you about some interesting problems which have been studied with the help of statistical methods, and show you how to use these methods yourself. We will try to explain why the methods work, and what to watch out for when others use them. Mathematical notation only seems to confuse things for many people, so this book relies on words, charts, and tables; there are hardly any x's or y's. As a matter of fact, even when professional mathematicians read technical books, their eyes tend to skip over the equations. What they really want is a sympathetic friend who will explain the ideas and draw the pictures behind the equations. We will try to be that friend, for those who read our book.
