Description - Texts, Facts and Femininity by Dorothy E. Smith

Dorothy E. Smith is one of the leading feminist thinkers in North America. Her book consists of key published and unpublished essays which illustrate the full range of works on texts as social relations. Included here is Professor Smith's famous essay, K is mentally ill , which explores the concept of mental illness as a method of reading and writing a factual account of someone becoming mentally ill. There are also essays on femininity as discourse; the social relations of description in the context of a sociological study of the news; the micro-politics of a meeting; the 'structuring' of power through texts telling different versions of a confrontation between police and street people. The book concludes with a discussion of the distinctive properties of social organisation and the relations mediated by texts. Discursive and exhaustive, Texts, Facts, and Femininity will be of interest to students of women's studies, sociology, social theory, cultural theory, communications and psychology.
