4.0 von 5 Sternen Technically strong, but lacking in cultural sensitivity, 23. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Women in the Material World (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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Women in the Material World is a great book!, 16. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Women in the Material World (Taschenbuch)
I read the book, Women in the Material World after I saw the author at a young women's conference last year. I thought the book was great. It showed many women's points of view on life and the way they live. This book made me think about other women and how we are all very different but also the same. I think this book is very truthful and has a beautiful message. There are not many books like this out there so I commend Faith for writing it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Photos amazing, interviews however..., 29. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Women in the Material World (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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I think this book was one of the best books I have read!!, 27. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book was terrific. When I read the book MATERIAL WORLD, A GLOBAL FAMILY PORTRAIT, I thought there was no book like it that could be better. Now when I read it, all I wish is to have is WOMEN IN THE MATERIAL WORLD . I cannot believe how good it is. I recomend this book for all ages (I am 11).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not culturally lacking afterall, 16. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting look at other women's lives., 24. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
After living in ten U.S. states, England and Panama, I am well aware of economical differences between geograpthical areas. This book reminded me of the indoor physical space we Americans take for granted. The sheer luxury of a bedroom separate from the common living area, let alone bedrooms for the parents and each child!

5.0 von 5 Sternen It really makes you think, 1. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
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.
