"Hers is a sporting history unlike any I've read—one that, in its sophistication and thoughtfulness, shows up the hollowness of most other accounts."—The ObserverTennis' gladiatorial beauty, stylish duelling, and fashionable court-wear make it a romantic's dream. Ever since young men and women first came together to play on vicarage lawns, this most Victorian of games has always had a peculiarly passionate undercurrent—love even makes it into the scoring system. And passion is included in other forms—the rivalry of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, and John McEnroe's legendary angry outbursts.Beyond the romance, tennis has always been a barometer of the times. French star Suzanne Lenglen was a celebrity trailblazer, Jimmy Connors channeled punk, and Wimbledon's Henman Hill is unrecognizable from the days when the All England Club ostracised working-class Fred Perry—the great English tennis champion who is now more famous as a leisure clothing brand than a sportsman.Love Game is the must-have companion for tennis fans during the 2015 US Open. It tells the story of tennis' journey from upper-middle-class hobby to global TV spectacle, taking in the innovators and trendsetters, the great players, heroes, and iconoclasts, and the politics, class wars, and culture clashes of what could rightfully be called the "beautiful game".Elizabeth Wilson is currently visiting professor at the London College of Fashion and is the author of several nonfiction books. Her novels The Twilight Hour, War Damage, and The Girl in Berlin are also published by Serpent's Tail.

Women and the Welfare State approaches the question of welfare policy from an entirely fresh perspective. In it the author argues that an appreciation of the way in which women are defined by welfare policies, and have been since the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution, is essential to a true understanding of the nature of those policies and of the Welfare State. An important, possible the most important, function of welfare policy has been to promote and retain a particular form of the family; indeed, one can define the Welfare State as the State organization of domestic life. To illustrate her arguments the author looks at the development of State welfare intervention from the early nineteenth century to the present day and relates it to the changing position of women, children, and of the family. The traditional Marxist view is modified by a theory of the position of women and by relating changing welfare policies and beliefs about welfare both to the women’s movements of the past century and to the ideas and theories of the contemporary Women’s Liberation Movement. In her approach Elizabeth Wilson argues – uniquely among writers on the Welfare State – for an emphasis on the ideology of welfare.

In this book, one of the most accomplished and thoughtful cultural commentators of the day, considers the contradictory nature of cultural relations. Elizabeth Wilson explores these themes through an examination of fashion, feminism, consumer culture, representation and postmodernism. Debates within feminism on the nature and effects of pornography are used to illustrate a particular kind of cultural contradiction. Wilson recognizes that postmodernism permitted the reappropriation of subjects that were not previously considered worthy of attention, or opposed to the idea of emancipation, chief among these was fashion. She shows that the association of an interest in this culturally significant subject with a revisionist project raises doubt (view table of contents)
