Drawing on the most important studies in psychology, human aggression, anthropology, and primatology, and on hundreds of original interviews conducted over a period of more than 20 years, this groundbreaking treatise urges women to look within and to consider other women realistically, ethically, and kindly and to forge bold and compassionate alliances. Without this necessary next step, women will never be liberated. Detailing how women's aggression may not take the same form as men's, this investigation reveals--through myths, plays, memoir, theories of revolutionary liberation movements, evolution, psychoanalysis, and childhood development--that girls and women are indeed aggressive, often indirectly and mainly toward one another. This fascinating work concludes by showing that women depend upon one another for emotional intimacy and bonding, and exclusionary and sexist behavior enforces female conformity and discourages independence and psychological growth.

Das internationale Erfolgsbuch von Viktor E. Frankl in Neuausgabe „Die Konzentrationslager Hitlers und Himmlers sind heute historisch, sie sind nur ein Beispiel für vielfach andere, neuere Höllen; und wie Viktor Frankl seine Lager-Zeit überwand, das ist inzwischen anwendbar geworden auf viele, nicht nur deutsche Situationen, die Zweifel am Sinn des Lebens nahelegen.“ Hans Weigel im Vorwort

Feminist icon Chesler's pioneering work--2.5 million copies sold--revised and updated for the first time in 30 years. This definitive book was the first to address critical questions about women and mental health. Combining patient interviews with an analysis of women's roles in history, society, and myth Chesler concludes that there is a terrible double standard when it comes to women's psychology. In this new edition, she addresses head-on many of the most relevant issues to women and mental health today, including eating disorders, social acceptance of antidepressants, addictions, sexuality, postpartum depression, and more. Fully revised and updated, Women and Madness remains as important today as it was when first published in 1972.

Claudia Szczesny-Friedmann analysiert in diesem Buch evolutionspsychologisch die grundlegenden Strategien im Umgang mit anderen: Kooperation und Konkurrenz. «Tauben» sind kooperativ eingestellt und neigen zu Vorsicht und Rücksicht. «Falken» sind auf Kampf eingestellt und darauf, die überlegene Position zu erringen. Die Kenntnis der unterschiedlichen Verhaltensweisen hilft uns, unser eigenes Repertoire zu erweitern, um flexibel und den Umständen angemessen reagieren zu können. «Tauben» können lernen, dem Impuls zu widerstehen, im Konfliktfall zu fliehen oder sich zu unterwerfen, während «Falken» bei der Durchsetzung ihrer Interessen die Rücksicht auf andere im Blick haben sollten. Die Autorin zeigt, wie wir unser eigenes Verhaltensrepertoire erweitern und so zu einem fairen Umgang mit uns selbst gelangen können.

Feminist icon and political activist Phyllis Chesler, author of the 2.5-million copy bestseller Women and Madness and the controversial The New Anti-Semitism, calls for an overhaul of the women's movement. In this important book, Phyllis Chesler asks the questions: Within feminism, is there room for free thinkers who oppose the party line? What if a feminist believes in capitalism? God? Patriotism? Chesler is the first to show the crisis in feminism today, which is silencing women and stripping them of power. In order to be a member of the club you must reject capitalism, see religion as a dangerous form of patriarchy, oppose the war, and turn a blind eye to the woman-defeating practices of Islam. The result contradicts the moral and ethical principles feminism was built on. Chesler signals a critical need for women to come together in a pro-individualist form of feminism.
