It draws on different research topics, such as welfare,
poverty, sexual identity, and sexual abuse, to illustrate
some of the most salient dilemmas of feminist research:
the debate over objectivity, the paradox of discourse,
the dilemma of "standpoint," and the challenges of
activist research. By linking important feminist
theoretical debates with case studies, the author
illustrates the strategies she developed for resolving
the challenges posed be postmodern, third world,
postcolonial, and queer studies.

Postcolonial theory has the most impact in disciplines
such as literature and, to some degree, history, and
perhaps the least impact in the discipline of politics.
However, there is growing interest in postcolonial theory
within politics, and interest in especially high in the
subfield of international relations. This text provides a
comprehensive survey of how postcolonial theory shapes
our understanding of international relations.

This book argues that public health thinking needs an
overhaul, a return to and modernisation around ecological
principles. Ecological Public Health thinking, outlined
here, fits the twenty-first century-s challenges. It
integrates what the authors call the four dimensions of
existence: the material, biological, social and cultural
aspects of life. Public health becomes the task of
transforming the relationship between people, their
circumstances and the biological world of nature and
bodies. The authors argue that identifying large scale
transitions such as these refocuses public health actions
onto the conditions on which human and eco-systems health
interact. Making their case, the authors map past
confusions in public health images, definitions and

This book explores the aesthetic pleasures of eating and
writing in the lives of M. F. K. Fisher (1908-1992),
Alice B. Toklas (1877-1967), and Elizabeth David (1913-
1992). Growing up during a time when women-s food writing
was largely limited to the domestic cookbook, which
helped to codify the guidelines of middle class
domesticity, Fisher, Toklas, and David claimed the
pleasures of gastronomy previously reserved for men.
Articulating a language through which female desire is
artfully and publicly sated, Fisher, Toklas, and David
expanded women-s food writing beyond the domestic realm
by pioneering forms of self-expression that celebrate
female appetite for pleasure and for culinary adventure.
In so doing, they illuminate the power of genre-bending
food writing to transgress and reconfigure conventional
