Political philosophy and feminist theory have rarely examined in detail how capitalism affects the lives of women. Ann Cudd and Nancy Holmstrom take up opposing sides of the issue, debating whether capitalism is valuable as an ideal and whether, as an actually existing economic system, it is good for women. In a discussion covering a broad range of social and economic issues, including unequal pay, industrial reforms, and sweatshops, they examine how these and other issues relate to women and how to analyze effectively what constitutes "capitalism" and "women's interests." Each author also responds to the opposing arguments, providing a thorough debate of the topics covered. The resulting volume will interest a wide range of readers in philosophy, political theory, women's studies and global affairs.

Examines resistance within Mexican labour unions during a period of sustained crisis and the regional and national level, as well as the level of world order. Gender, having played a central role in the construction of relatively stable historical structures in Mexico, continued to shape the struggles of radical labour movements throughout a period of deepening crisis. Â· Contends that globalisation is not just about the activities of multinational corporations Â· Uses gender as a central concept in analysing Mexico's experience with globalisation Â· Highlights the diversity and rich political history of social movements in Mexico Â· Links regional and national level analysis to world order Studies the contradictory ways in which globalisation is experienced by workers on a local level and how struggles are linked to the ongoing internationalisation of the workplace. Changing material conditions, institutions and ideological forces have been profoundly gendered throughout twentieth century Mexico. Rather than concentrating exclusively on the role of transnational capital and state in advancing globalisation, Healy uncovers the limits and possibilities of working class men and women in transforming the conditions of crisis in which they live.

This book critically examines the tenets of Calvinism and constructs a Bible-based argument to refute the belief. It discusses each of Calvinism's five points. It defines four very unique criteria that can be used to show that the belief is incorrect. The first criterion is that a person does not have to know the name of Jesus to be saved. In discussing that criterion the relationship aspect of salvation is examined. The second criterion is that God did not speak out loud to the Old Testament saints once Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. The third criterion is that God tries equally hard to save everyone. In discussing that criterion the importance of General Revelation is examined. The fourth criterion is that God is still sovereign even though He lets people choose to come to Him or to not come to Him. The book concludes by refuting each of the five points of Calvinism with a special focus on the established four criteria and the verses that are normally used to defend the belief.
