In a shtetl in Imperial Russia, we meet the first of the Markoff women, beautiful, rebellious, red-haired Eve. As the new wife of David Markoff, Eve confronts the tyranny of her father-in-law’s household, where women are treated as servants and men are treated as boys. While the spirit of the revolution grows throughout Russia, Eve sows seeds off freedom beneath her father-in-law’s roof. And as the lives of the Markoffs are increasingly threatened by Cossack flames, the love between Eve and David is destined for betrayal. The son born to Eve grows up to become a revolutionary, forced to flee to America. There he bitterly rejects his past and paves the way for his daughter’s marriage into Russian aristocracy. By the time Eve escapes to America, the lies that divide the Markoff family have separated mother and son forever. But the past must be given its due—in a showdown that sets rage against love.

Reviled by critics but loved by the readers, the bestseller has until recently provoked little serious critical interest. In The Myth of Superwoman, originally published in 1990, Resa Dudovitz looks at this international phenomenon, particularly at the origins of the bestseller system in the United States and France. Her cross-cultural study, including interviews with publishers, literary agents, and bestselling authors, gives a lively picture of the contrasting ways in which the bestseller is produced, marketed, and received in two countries. It pays special attention to the ‘international bestsellers’ of the 1980s, to writers like Judith Krantz, Colleen McCullough, and Barbara Taylor Bradford, all of whose novels are published in the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and Italy. The book presents a general analysis of women’s bestsellers, ranging over a wide variety of novels, from popular nineteenth-century texts in France and the United States to the novels of today. Dudovitz shows how women’s bestselling fiction has, over the last two hundred years, kept pace with the social evolution of contemporary women, culminating in the myth of superwoman in women’s bestsellers of the 1980s. This fascinating account of an important aspect of popular culture will be of great value to students of women’s studies and cultural studies, especially those interested in the myths which structure women’s bestselling fiction.

The Second Edition of this best selling book provides a comprehensive examination of the role that gender plays in work environments. This book differs from others by comparing women's and men's work status, addressing contemporary issues within a historical perspective, incorporating comparative material from other countries, recognizing differences in the experiences of women and men from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Relying on both qualitative and quantitative data, the authors seek to link social scientific ideas about workers' lives, sex inequality, and gender to the real-world workplace. This new edition contains updated statistics, timely cartoons, and presents new scholarship in the field. It also provides a renewed focus on reasons for variability in inequality across workplaces. In sum, the second edition of Women and Men at Work presents a contemporary perspective to the field, with relevant comparative and historical insights that will draw readers in and connect them to the wider concern of making sense of our dramatically changing world.

Man has long searched for the cause and meaning of mental illness. This second book continues in an attempt to answer those questions. The author/compiler has spent 47 years investigating these problems and his conclusion is that severe unconscious bisexual conflict and confusion lie at the root of all mental illness, as difficult to comprehend as this idea may be. The book itself consists of 773 quotations, from a variety of sources, all of which point to the unshakable truth of this hypothesis. This is a fixed law of nature, unassailable and constantly operative in every case. No other species but man is afflicted with mental illness because no other species has either the intellectual power to repress their sexual feelings nor the motivation to do so. The disease we call schizophrenia is but an arbitrary name, which is used to designate the end-stage of a process beginning with a slight neurosis. The more severe the bisexual conflict and confusion in the individual, the more severe the degree of the mental illness which is experienced. Several other investigators in the past have reached this same conclusion, but unfortunately their wisdom went largely unheeded. Hopefully this book will remedy that ill-advised neglect.

Learn from the experiences of these program sites to develop better services for women with co-occurring disorders and histories of violence This book explores the efforts of the Women, Co-Occurring Disorders and Violence Study to address the significant lack of appropriate services for women trauma survivors with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Experts describe the services integration programs of nine participating sites that address the multiple needs of these women. In this guide, you will find useful strategies for integrating services that are responsive to the strengths and needs of the individual as well as the community. This vital resource examines how—over a period of five years—sites designed, implemented, and evaluated their interventions. You will learn how sites developed their strategies for integrating services at both the clinical/individual level and at the services or systems level. The book also shows how trauma-informed, gender-specific, culturally competent care fosters treatment that is sensitive to related issues such as children and parenting, interpreting culture cues, and socioeconomic difficulties. In Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders, you will learn about the details of nine different programs, including: Franklin County Women’s Research Project—a collaborative project for rural women, designed and operated by local consumer/survivor/recovering women (CSRs) The Triad Women’s Project—a semi-rural comprehensive system of care to respond to the needs of women and children The Women Embracing Life and Living (WELL) Project-interventions include trauma, parenting, systems integration and mutual help groups with Integrated Care Facilitators providing resource coordination and advocacy services PROTOTYPES, Centers for Innovation in Health, Mental Health, and Social Services—the three levels of integration the Systems Change Center implemented the Boston Health Commission—an integrated model of trauma-informed services culturally and linguistically appropriate for its service population of primarily poor Latina and African American women Palladia’s Portal Project—a comprehensive trauma-informed intervention designed to put trauma and safety first to assist women remaining in treatment Arapahoe House’s New Directions for Families—a family-oriented intervention for women and their dependent children Allies—comprehensive, integrated services for women as well as intervention for their children, ages 5-10 The District of Columbia Trauma Collaboration Study (DCTCS)—a two-phase project addressing the needs of dually diagnosed women trauma survivors Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders provides you with first-hand accounts of the process by which programs and service systems were transformed. As challenges were met and strategy was adapted to “real world” situations, the sites discussed in this text found new and improved methods for helping this unique group of women. The book offers tips, solutions, and possibilities to mental health professionals, substance abuse professionals, and domestic violence professionals, and even patients and/or clients searching for support.

Who are you? Why are you here? As we journey through life sooner or later we feel the gnawing questions of our own self worth. Some term this introspection a mid-life crisis, but this hunger to know our own value can happen at any time. What's missing? What am I doing? There is a God given intent to this stirring. Come journey down ages past and get perspective from those who have gone before. Realize you are given life with purpose and not merely placed upon this earth to languish and mark off the days. It's your time. Let's begin. Bob Carneal is active duty Air Force for almost twenty years. Over the course of two deployments to Baghdad, Iraq the Lord stirred him to write this book. Although he knew there was a difference, he had to experience the genuine reality between believing and walking in belief. Arising from his own experiences spanning four years of boyhood in East Africa as a missionary's kid, to walking amidst danger in the ancient Biblical land that is now Iraq, he desires others to understand their worth.
