Dear Reader This is a book about mobile virtual work. It aims at clarifying the basic concepts and showing present practices and future challenges. The roots of the book are in the collaboration of few European practitioners and - searchers, who met each other under the umbrella of the Swedish SALTSA programme (see next page) in January 2002 in Stockholm. The group was first called 'ICT, Mobility and Work Organisation' but redefined itself quickly as 'Mobile Virtual Cooperative Work' group. The change of the name reflects the development of reasoning in the group. We could not find much material on mobile work, certainly not systematic studies, - though a growing interest in mobile technologies and services could be found. Practices of telework and virtual organizations were better known, but we were convinced that the combination with mobile work was so- thing different and new. Our main target became to understand what it was all about. The next step was an expert meeting in October 2004 at Ranas Castle again in Sweden. A wider group of experts was invited to present their views on mobile virtual work and ideas about book chapters from different perspectives of working life. Some of the expertise could be found through the network of the AMI@Work family created by the New Working En- ronments unit of the European Commission's Information Society Dir- torate-General. Also close collaboration was developed with the related MOSAIC program.
From bell hooks's incisive look at the scapegoating of black men as archetypal racists to Andrea Dworkin's scathing statement on pornography as violence against women, this anthology is the first to fully represent the range of contemporary perspectives on one of the most fiercely contested areas in feminist thought. In Feminism and Sexuality, the most outspoken feminist voices of our generation are brought toether in one volume. Writings by Adrienne Rich, Judith Butler, Feminists Against Censorship, Catharine MacKinnon, and Cheryl Clarke cover the spectrum of issues that surround this crucial topic. With classic and cutting-edge commentary on pornography, prostitution, sexual violence, young women and sexuality, heterosexuality and lesbianism, sadomasochism, AIDS, and the international sex industry, this is the most comprehensive sourcebook on the major theoretical positions and critical trends surrounding this central feminist issue.
