A follow-up to coauthor Peter Menzel's lauded Material World: A Global Family Portrait, Women in the Material World once again illuminates the human family--but this time with the focus on women. The result is an arresting collection of photographs, interviews, and anecdotes documenting the day-to-day lives and thoughts of women from 20 different countries. From Albania to India to the United States, we hear the female viewpoint on politics and religion, men and marriage, children and education. Cultural stereotypes are both supported (an Ethiopian mother explains why her daughter must be circumcised) and shattered (the loving equity of an Albanian marriage). The gorgeous accompanying photographs artfully link narrative text with faces and environs, from the rugged peaks of Bhutan to the Mediterranean beaches of Israel. What emerges is a captivating survey of women's lives in the late 20th century, and--even more--a powerful feeling of connectedness with these fellow human beings. --Rebecca Gleason -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


Originally published in 1996 and a sequel to MATERIAL WORLD. Portraying the similarities and differences in women's lives and aspirations throughout the world. D'Aluisio with a team of women photojournalists and interviewers travelled the world to take a closer look at the lives of women in 20 countries. Illustrated with colour photographs.

Format: Taschenbuch
The photos themselves are frequently very strong and the imaginative layout provides much interesting and needed information about economics and life styles of women in many countries. For these reasons I did enjoy the book, but I can not whole heartedly recommend it because the project was not sufficiently sauve in cross-cultural representation. The problem with the book is that the photographers, interviers and writers were lacking in cross cultural insight, so I could not really recommend to my friends or family. For example, a more exact title for the book would be "Married (or divorced) heterosexual women with children in the material world," because women without children and/or women in relationships with women were excluded, which implies their experience as women is not not a part of "Women's" experience or worthy of documentation. I found the interviews to be so heavy-handed that they were trite, predicable and therefore not very interesting.

Von Ein Kunde am 16. April 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Women in the Material World was written to correct a defect the author percieved in the previous book The Material World: that the women of the families were neglected subjects by the interviews and photographers. Because the authors chose statically average families, unmarried women, homosexual women and women without children were not chosen--we (I call into one of the above catagories) are a minority and therefore to include us in the book would create a false impression. The questions and replies are not trite. It is almost impossible for those of us used to the unlimited possibilities open to many (but by no means all) to understand how cirumscribed the lives of the vast majoirty of men and women are. Lacking the opporunity to know or understand other ways of living, it is very hard for them to address anything but the day to day issues facing them. Yet the answers given the women in this book are thoughful, insightful and show great compassion. Here, in the US the words diversity and tolerance are bandied about--here is a book that begins to show how different we are in our understanding of ourselves, each other and our place in the world--and also how much we have in common. Now we a book about the most neglected group--Children in the Material World.

Von Ein Kunde am 29. September 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I was thrilled with this book when I first saw it at a friend's house when I was visiting the US. While trying to recover from burn out syndrome, 'reading' photo books works well for me and I enjoyed this book so much because the photos give an incredibly intimate look into the lives of ordinary people around the globe. They capture both love and despair in an amazing way. However, the interviews could have been a lot better. Other reviewers are right that the chosen families are not as representative as we might wish, but at least that is accounted for and I think understandable. What bugs me most is the American bias: the American woman is asked questions on a totally different level than the others, making the others seem sort of stupid on the one hand and frustrating comparison on the other. And I also would like to have had more information about how the interview was done, if the interviewer spoke the woman's language, what may have gotten lost in the translation etc. Still, a great book to have and I wish I could have been part of the team that made it!

This book really made me think about my life as compared to the lives of women around the world. It was amazing to see how many people lived without electricity and education and all the things people in America and other developed countries take for granted. It reminds you how everyone has similar needs for love and freedom to be themselves, but how people all around the world are very different. When you're surfing the net, sometimes you don't think that there are women somewhere else pounding grain and tending their 7 children. This book was utterly fascinating.
