The decision to re-write or update 'Security for Today's Women' was a simple one. I began thinking about revising the text and publishing to Amazon, following a conversation with my wife. Where she had expressed her concern about the dangers faced by today's college coeds, either sex. Those living in a college dorm or apartment. And how closely it compared to her own terrifying rape experience in a dark parking garage. Her voiced concerns regarding the unknown dangers faced by today's women everywhere, inspired a complete rewrite of the original book, new cover and all.When the initial book was completed in the 80's, She eagerly read it and basically stated; If I had known this stuff before, it would have never happened. Every woman should know how to defend herself. That's the story behind this little book for today's busy Women. It is our sincere hope you do not have such a terrifying experience thrust upon you. In the words of my wife and editor: "Knowing how to defend myself, changes everything". This small book is a no nonsense, thirty+ pages of Self Help, 'Awareness with Attitude' book for Today's Women, everywhere.A Marines wife knows, "Attitude is Everything". Thank you and stay safe.Thomas & Lisa

Chronicling the lives and career choices of a dynamic group of women, this book provides a comprehensive and unique glimpse into the intricate balance of work and family. Women's Employment and Homemaking Careers is based on three surveys, the first conducted while the women were attending university and the second and third conducted one and two decades later. The surveys provide quantitative data that supplements the qualitative material gained from final interviews conducted at the end of the 25-year longitudinal study. The book is based on two comparisons - first, examining how women change in the quarter century following university and the second comparing the lifestyle choices of career women, homemakers, part-time employees and entrepreneurs - and uses those comparisons to build in-depth analyses of the pivotal importance of women's employment and family decisions. Cherlyn Granrose interprets her findings using lifespan development, decision-making and gender role theories and outlines lessons for women, their counselors and employers as well as other scholars. Women learn there are many different means by which to create satisfying family and working lives; employers learn the importance of positive supervision and flexible family support policies; and scholars learn the necessity of using multiple methods and perspectives to understand the complexity of modern women's lives. Scholars and students of sociology, psychology, business and women's studies will find this volume as informative as they will find it interesting.
With Korea already on its way to becoming the next major front in world trade and international commerce--it is now the United States' seventh largest bilateral trading partner--American firms that realize the potential opportunities of establishing an early presence there stand to realize substantial profits. This pioneering book is the first to provide a step-by-step guide to establishing an active export operation in Korea. Writing for both business executives who want to expand their export operations and professionals who study and analyze international trade, the author offers a thorough discussion of company evaluation, product selection, overseas business practices, local customs, and Korean outlets. The focus throughout is on the practical strategies and procedures involved in setting up and maintaining a successful export operation in Korea, making this an indispensable source for international sales managers, strategic planners, and marketing executives. The author begins by analyzing company strategies and shows how the individual firm can evaluate its own export capacities. The second section discusses products and product groups likely to sell well in Korea. Part III places trade within its social context and explores Korean trade policies, the importance of culture, and the dominance of government in Korean trade. Because exporting trends are moving toward joint-ventures, the author notes, these cultural considerations take on additional significance. The cultural practices that must be observed by traders active in Korea are examined in a group of chapters that describe how the Korean import market works, how U.S. suppliers compare with Japan, how to gain access to the Korean markets, and how insiders view Korean practices. The last two sections emphasize Korean protocol and outlet procedures. Among the topics covered here are customs and traditions, Korean business etiquette, establishing distribution systems, consumer markets, service outlets, and business prospects. Numerous tables and figures amplify points made in the text.
Taiwan's rapid socio-economic and political transformation has given rise to a gender-conscious middle class that is attempting to redefine the roles of women in society, to restructure relationship patterns, and to organize in groups outside the family unit. This book examines internal psychological processes and external societal processes as the feminist movement in Taiwan expands and new gender roles are explored. The contributors represent a cross section of different disciplines - history, anthropology, and sociology - and different generations of China/Taiwan scholars. They place the issues facing Taiwan's women's movement in social, political, and economic contexts. The book examines gender relations, the role of women in Chinese society, and issues related to women in China throughout history. Feminism and gender relations are also viewed from the context of film and literature. The authors look at the contemporary roles that women play in Taiwan's work force today, how the sexes perceive each other in the workplace, and more.
