Breaking through the long-established image of Heian Japan (794-1185) as a culture dominated by ritualized aristocratic values, Yung-Hee Kim presents the picture of a country in transition, filled with a wide variety of common people responding to very ordinary situations. In popular songs called imayo, they expressed their concerns about religion, love, aging, and even current affairs. In 1179 Emperor Go-Shirakawa compiled Ryojin hisho, a twenty-volume collection of this song genre that juxtaposes the sacred with the profane, the high with the low, the male with the female, the old with the new. Kim makes these songs the core of her book, in translations that faithfully reflect the sounds and images of the originals and bring them to life within their own literary and cultural context.

The Impact of Women in Congress

Author: Debra L. Dodson

Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand

ISBN:

Category: Political Science

Page: 295

View: 148

While existing literature provides compelling evidence that women in public office make a difference, the relationship between descriptive and substantive representation of women in political institutions long the domain of men is neither simple nor certain. Embracing New Institutionalists' warnings of the dangers of studying behaviour in an institutional vacuum, this book uses two strikingly different yet consecutive congresses - the Democratically controlled 103rd Congress electedduring the 'Year of the Woman' and the Republican-controlled 104th Congress elected during the 'Year of the Angry White Male' - as laboratories to explore the complexity of the relationship between women's presence and impact. In-depth interviews with hundreds of staff, lobbyists, and women membersof Congress, along with other quantitative and archival data, are the foundation for case studies of three highly visible policy areas (reproductive rights, women's health, and health care policy) important to women, but with strikingly different outcomes across the two Congresses.The inquiry is quickly moved beyond the simple question 'Do women make a difference?' Dodson confronts the contested issues surrounding difference which often lurk beneath the surface - the probabilistic rather than deterministic relationship between descriptive and substantive representation of women, the contested legitimacy of women representing women, and the disagreement about what it means to represent women. The analysis moves the literature toward a better integrated understanding ofhow gendered forces at the individual, institutional, and societal levels combine to reinforce and redefine gendered relationships to power in the public sphere. The results can be generalized over time and across settings, are meaningful even in periods when the answer to the question of whetherwomen make a difference seems to be more frequently 'no' than 'yes,' and point to strategies that may bolster the impact of women's presence for substantive representation of women.

"A remarkably long and varied literary career is represented in this collection. Witter Bynner (1881-1968) published more than twenty books, but for various reasons his accomplishments have been overlooked and undervalued." "Bynner is perhaps best known for his translations of Chinese literature. These are represented in Kraft's anthology along with selections from Bynner's influential translation of Euripides' Iphigenia in Tauris, his own plays, and especially his varied verse, including the poems that he and his friend Arthur Davison Ficke published under the names of Emanuel Morgan and Anne Knish as "Spectrist" verse. Among the prose included here are essays on subjects ranging from Henry James to Pueblo Indian ceremonial life. Bynner numbered among his broad range of friends and acquaintances individuals as diverse as Igor Stravinsky and Cecil B. DeMille, D. H. Lawrence and Khalil Gibran, and his witty letters to and about these people make delightful reading."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
