Women in Culture by Lucinda Joy Peach

The materials are drawn from a wide range of sources, including popular newspapers, women's and fashion magazines, academic journals, and textbooks. Together they reveal how the mass media, music, and pornography industries portray women, how advertising promotes unattainable standards of beauty for women, and how, for example, cultural expectations can promote date rape and sexual harassment.

Legislating Morality, Hardback (February 2002)
An issue in American political life is the role that religion plays in public law making. Many believe that religious voices have been suppressed in public life, others argue that religion (Christianity in particular) is an institutionalised part of American public life. This book sheds light on this discussion.
