AUTHOR

Elshtain, Jean Bethke

SUMMARY

Each chapter of this book treats a particular historical or contemporary topic of civic concern. Some are centered on current family crises and issues (the “family wage,” child abuse, the “new eugenics”) while others look to the wider national and international polity. Yet each, insistently, returns to common themes: the many faces and forms of power; struggles for autonomy; the need for human sociality and community. Elshtain’s essays on controversial domestic subjects demonstrate her independence of mind, her understanding of politics as the art of the possible, and her openness to debate. In the last section, related essays on women’s power and powerlessness, on patriotism, and on just war track a movement from domestic politics to foreign affairs. They are cautionary tales which simultaneously express realizable hopes and honor those, like the Mothers of the Disappeared in Argentina, who have taught us, through their desperation and triumph, what it means to fashion a politics of hope and justice against a politics of vengeance and despair.Elshtain, Jean Bethke is the author of 'Power Trips and Other Journeys Essays in Feminism As Civic Discourse' with ISBN 9780299126742 and ISBN 0299126749.
