This original study examines women's activism against war in areas as far apart as Sierra Leone, India, Colombia and Palestine. It shows women on different sides of conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and Israel addressing racism and refusing enmity and describes international networks of women opposing US and Western European militarism and the so-called 'war on terror'. These movements, though diverse, are generating an antimilitarist feminism that challenges how war and militarism are understood, both in academic studies and the mainstream anti-war movement. Gender, particularly the form taken by masculinity in a violent sex/gender system, is inseparably linked to economic and ethno-national factors in the perpetuation of war.

Why does a particular landscape move us? What is it that attaches us to a particular place? Tall’s From Where We Stand is an eloquent exploration of the connections we have with places—and the loss to us if there are no such connections. A typically rootless child of several American suburbs, Tall set out to make a true home for herself in the landscape that circumstance had brought her—the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. In a mosaic of personal anecdotes, historical sketches, and lyrical meditations, she interweaves her own story with the story of this place and its people—from the Seneca Nation of the Iroquois, to European settlers, to the many utopians who sensed and were inspired by a spiritual resonance here. This edition includes an introduction by William Kittredge and a foreword by Stephen Kuusisto, both highlighting the book’s significance and Tall’s exquisite skill in tracing the relationship between homelands and storytelling.

What is Comparative Sinology? China from Where We Stand brings together powerful, diverse voices to define the boundaries and possibilities of this new field, providing a range of perspectives – insider, outsider and in-between – with China at the center. This exemplifies a new China: progressive, outward-looking, yet reflective. Comparative Sinology studies how China has been studied. In today’s global world of hybrid, hyphenated identities, such studies cannot be confined to how non-Chinese study China. What does it mean to be Chinese? Where does it start? Where does it end? Like the related disciplines of China Studies and National Studies, Comparative Sinology is interdisciplinary. Though the four parts of this book represent Philosophy, Literature, History, and Culture, all articles could fit in at least two of these categories. This book redefines the boundaries of traditional academic study, including the subject position, as it is essential, when trying to understand China and its place in the world today, to look at the place of each one of us. Personal connections may be explicit or implicit; but every author here is passionate and personally connected to the work that he or she does, and to China’s future. The practical and intellectual possibilities of this discipline are vast and varied, and this book offers a potential springboard for such ideas.
