Intelligent Souls? offers a new understanding of Islam in eighteenth-century Britain. Cahill explores two overlapping strands of thinking about women and Islam, which produce the phenomenon of “feminist orientalism.” One strand describes seventeenth-century ideas about the nature of the soul used to denigrate religio-political opponents. A second tracks the transference of these ideas to Islam during the Glorious Revolution and the Trinitarian controversy of the 1690s. The confluence of these discourses compounded if not wholly produced the stereotype that Islam denied women intelligent souls. Surprisingly, women writers of the period accepted the stereotype, but used it for their own purposes. Rowe, Carter, Lennox, More, and Wollstonecraft, Cahill argues, established common ground with men by leveraging the “otherness” identified with Islam to dispute British culture’s assumption that British women were lacking in intelligence, selfhood, or professional abilities. When Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman she accepted that view as true—and “feminist orientalism” was born, introducing a fallacy about Islam to the West that persists to this day.

Industrialization in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries inspired deep fears and divisions throughout England. The era's emergent factory system disrupted traditional patterns and familiar ways of life. Male laborers feared the loss of meaningful work and status within their communities and families. Condemning these transformations, Britain's male writers looked longingly to an idealized past. Its women writers, however, were not so pessimistic about the future. As Susan Zlotnick argues in Women, Writing, and the Industrial Revolution, women writers foresaw in the industrial revolution the prospect of real improvements. Zlotnick also examines the poetry and fiction produced by working-class men and women. She includes texts written by the Chartists, the largest laboring-class movement in the early nineteenth century, as well as those of the dialect tradition, the popular, commercial literature of the industrial working class after mid-century.

Women Writing the Nation: National Identity, Female Community, and the British - French Connection, 1770-1820 engages in recent discussions of the development of British nationalism during the eighteenth century and Romantic period. Leanne Maunu argues that women writers looked not to their national identity, but rather to their gender to make claims about the role of women within the British nation. Discussing texts by Frances Burney, Charlotte Smith, Mary Wollstonecraft, and others in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries, Maunu demonstrates that women writers of this period imagined themselves as members of a fairly stable community, even if such a community was composed of many different women with many different beliefs. They appropriated the model of collectivity posed by the nation, mimicking a national imagined community.

Byronic Heroes in Nineteenth-Century Women's Writing and Screen Adaptation charts a new chapter in the changing fortunes of a unique cultural phenomenon. This book examines the afterlives of the Byronic hero through the work of nineteenth-century women writers and screen adaptations of their fiction. It is a timely reassessment of Byron's enduring legacy during the nineteenth century and beyond, focusing on the charged and unstable literary dialogues between Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, George Eliot and a Romantic icon whose presence takes centre stage in recent screen adaptations of their most celebrated novels. The broad interdisciplinary lens employed in this book concentrates on the conflicted rewritings of Byron's poetry, his 'heroic' protagonists, and the cult of Byronism in nineteenth-century novels from Pride and Prejudice to Middlemarch, and extends outwards to the reappearance of Byronic heroes on film and in television series over the last two decades.

Mary s Way

This is a book about spiritual connections, about the use of Mary's way in opening a deep communion with divine love, and about the possibility of transformation in our daily lives.

In 1989, Peggy Tabor Millin joined a group of non-Catholics as chronicler on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, Bosnia, where Mary, mother of Jesus, had been appearing to a group of young people since 1981. Although she did not expect to be affected by her journey, what occurred changed her life, leading her along a path she calls "Mary's way." Twenty years later, she understood that Mary had been appearing in order to prepare us for what is happening now. Millin then knew she was to republish the book with a new subtitle to reflect the intent of the messages: Cultivating a Peaceful Heart in Trying Times. This is a book about spiritual connections, about the use of Mary's way in opening a deep communion with divine love, and about the possibility of transformation in our daily lives. Mary's message is universal-individuals from all religious and spiritual paths will find guidance and inspiration. Millin writes, "The spiritual journey has no goal, nothing tangible to grasp, not even a permanent state of being. Enlightenment comes in flashes of in-sight that last as long as they last. Such flashes arise from shifting our focus from the material world to the inner life of the soul. Our outer life then becomes a reflection of our inner reality: increasingly the heart rests in peace and selfless service replaces striving. This shift in focus rearranges our priorities; we give up what no longer serves this higher purpose and are occasionally surprised by glimpses of the resplendent 'pearl of great price.'" Peggy Tabor Millin is author of the award-winning book, Women, Writing, and Soul-Making: Creativity and the Sacred Feminine. She offers classes and retreat for women in the writing process. Her mission is to provide a safe space for women to develop and claim their voice so they can stand in their power and inspire positive change in their world.

Most critics and scholars have long assumed that the women’s movement was almost exclusively a white middle-class women’s affair. This book counters the prevailing view by putting the spotlight on some remarkable women from other backgrounds, such as African Americans Pauline Hopkins and Amy Jacques Garvey, Mexican American Maria Cristena Mena, and Chinese American Sui Sin Far. Also examined are the work of more obvious New Women, such as Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
