$24.95 Paperback 978-0-8263-5236-1 October 2012
“Reads like a mystery thriller wherein a handful of committed environmentalists forestall the destruction of America’s premier fossil beds. Brings to mind John Nichols’s The Milagro Beanfield War and Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang. It is a true story with a happy ending (unless you’re a real estate developer).”—Jack Loeffler, author of Adventures with Ed: A Portrait of Abbey
Interspersed with short stories, songs, and incantations, The Mermaid and the Lobster Diver demonstrates the archetypes of femininity and masculinity within Miskitu society, highlighting the power associated with women's sexuality-as manifested in both goddess and human form-and the vulnerable position of men.
Providing an overview of the women's suffrage movement from its earliest stages through the passage of the 1947 law, this study examines what Argentina's history can tell us about the moment when a society agrees to the equal participation of women in the political realm.
Gender is at the center of D'Amico's analysis as she looks beyond the overlapping lives of Elsie Clews Parsons and Rosa Lema, both innovators and adept at crossing cultural boundaries, to explore the interrelationship between gender, ethnicity, and globalization.
