Hazards of Time Travel by Joyce Carol Oates Book Resume:

An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young woman’s resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society, from the inventive imagination of Joyce Carol Oates “Time travel” — and its hazards—are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America — “Wainscotia, Wisconsin”—that existed eighty years before. Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of “rehabilitation”—but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating. Arresting and visionary, Hazards of Time Travel is both a novel of harrowing discovery and an exquisitely wrought love story that may be Joyce Carol Oates’s most unexpected novel so far.

A Doctor’s Pilgrimage by Edmund A. Brasset Book Resume:

THE WARM-HEARTED, HUMOROUS STORY OF A COURAGEOUS YOUNG DOCTOR IN NOVA SCOTIA “I am no Grenfell,” said young intern Brasset to Canada’s famous Dr. John B. Thompson, but he agreed to go to Canso, Nova Scotia, as sole doctor for 2,000 people, remote from the world. So begins the story of a doctor’s pilgrimage that describes the early trials and travels of a warm, human and completely delightful general practitioner. Young Dr. Brasset wanted to become a brain surgeon, but lacked the money. In desolate Canso, relay station for the Atlantic cable, his first patient was a sick baby fed only on dry cod. He went in debt $3,600 in six months, his largest fee being the twenty-two dollars he collected from three drunken men by beating them up. Temporary work in a mining town proved little better, but resulted in marriage to the lovely Sally MacNeil. At rural Little Brook, where lived descendants of 900 Acadians returned from their historic flight, the first patient proved to be a 1400-pound gored ox; but fortunes improved and eventually there came the opportunity for brain surgery at the great hospital—but by now Dr. Brasset’s experience with people had changed his ambition. The tragic, the pitiful, the touching, the funny incidents of this warm-hearted tale reveal how, through the author’s great courage and humor, what could have been a very grim battle became in reality a very happy story.

Baba Padmanji by Deepra Dandekar Book Resume:

This book is a critical biography of Baba Padmanji (1831-1906), a firebrand native Christian missionary, ideologue, and litterateur from 19th-century Bombay Presidency. Though Padmanji was well-known, and a very influential figure among Christian converts, his contributions have received inadequate attention from the perspective of ‘social reform’ — an intellectual domain dominated by offshoots of the Brahmo Samaj movement, like the Prarthana Samaj in Bombay. This book constitutes an in-depth analysis of Padmanji’s relationships with questions of reform, education, modernity, feminism, and religion, that had wide-ranging repercussions on the intellectual horizon of 19th-century India. It presents Padmanji’s integrated writing persona and identity as a revolutionary pathfinder of his times who amalgamated and blended vernacular ideas of Christianity together with early feminism, modernity, and incipient nationalism. Drawing on a variety of primary and secondary sources, this unique book will be of great interest for area studies scholars (especially Maharashtra), and to researchers of modern India, engaged with the history of colonialism and missions, religion, global Christianity, South Asian intellectual history, and literature.

The Pimping of Prostitution by Julie Bindel Book Resume:

This book examines one of the most contested issues facing feminists, human rights activists and governments around the globe – the international sex trade. For decades, the liberal left has been conflicted as to whether pro-prostitution activists or abolitionists hold the correct view, and debates are ongoing as to who holds the key to the solutions facing the women and girls involved. Over the course of two years, Bindel conducted 250 interviews in almost 40 countries, cities and states, traveling around Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and East and South Africa. Visiting legal brothels all around the world, Bindel got to know pimps, pornographers, survivors of the sex trade, and the women being sold by men classed as ‘business entrepreneurs’. Whilst meeting feminist abolitionists, pro-prostitution campaigners, police and government officials, and the men who drive the demand, Bindel uncovered the lies, mythology and criminal activity that shroud this global trade, and suggests here a way forward for the women seeking to abolish the oldest oppression. Informed by the lived human experience of those interviewed, this book will be of great interest to feminists, students, criminal justice advocates, criminologists and human rights activists.

The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf Book Resume:

The bestselling classic that redefined our view od the relationship between beauty and female identity. In today's world, women have more power, legal recognition, and professional success than ever before. Alongside the evident progress of the women's movement, however, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife. It's the beauty myth, an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of "the flawless beauty."
