[SR: 141332], Paperback, [EAN: 9780440508328], Dell, Dell, Book, [PU: Dell], 1998-03-09, Dell, A legacy of leadership for women only.For centuries men have used the lessons of Machiavelli's The Prince to gain and hold power. Today's women, struggling to succeed in a man's world, must learn a crucial lesson of their own: men and women are not equal--and that is a woman's greatest strength. From the wars of intimacy to battles of public life, whether confronting bosses, competitors, or lovers, the greatest power belongs to the woman who dares to use the subtle weapons that are hers alone.This provocative work urges women to claim what they want and deserve, offering a bold new battle plan that celebrates a woman's unique gifts: passion and intuition, sensitivity and cunning. It draws from history's legendary female divas and poets, saints and sinners, artists and activists--who, armed with a desire for justice and a spirit of outrageousness, achieved their impossible dreams. Their lasting legacy is codified in The Princessa: act like a woman, fight like a woman, and life will be yours to command., Can a woman's version of The Prince actually work? There's a sidelong sensibility at work in this post-feminist analog to the Renaissance's great work of strategy. Harriet Rubin urges women to triumph by turning their enemies into allies and their fear into power; by enlarging their sphere rather than defending it; and by learning to best instead of win. But there's a delicate wryness to the art of balancing tensions to one's advantage. One of the most telling examples is that of Sun Tzu, who bet the emperor he could turn the twelve royal concubines into fierce warriors, but was bested by the concubines, who simply giggled when he barked orders at them. Modern women may find interpreting this a challenge, but an entertaining one., 4749, Success, 4736, Self-Help, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2682, Leadership, 2675, Management & Leadership, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 355578011, Women & Business, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10114, Essays, 10108, Essays & Correspondence, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10207, Criticism & Theory, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159380011, Women Authors, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11332, Feminist Theory, 11325, Women's Studies, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11344, Women Writers, 11325, Women's Studies, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

[SR: 1581894], Paperback, [EAN: 9780440508328], Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Book, [PU: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group], 1995-12-31, Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Can a woman become more powerful without becoming a man?Yes!Women who triumph don't follow the rules; they flaunt them.Harriet Rubin has studied the great female heroes in the wars of intimacy andpublic life, and distilled their behavior into a plan of action. Whetherconfronting lovers, mothers, bosses, or competitors, "The Princessa" is aguide for the woman who feels she deserves far more than she has gotten throughcompromise. While women have been socialized to avoid conflict, to bepeacemakers, caretakers, and nurturers, Rubin shows how those veryskills--sensitivity, emotional depth, and selflessness--can be codified into anew strategy of power. "The Princessa" imparts inspiration and wisdomfrom history's great divas, poets, saints, sinners, and artists, as well asfrom leaders of the most important social movements in our time--women who, with the Furies inside them, in a spirit of justice and outrageousness, established their own rules of power.Just as Machiavelli showed the prince how to use conflict in order to establishcontrol, Rubin shows why women must act more like women. "Think of mothersrisking everything to defend their young, " writes Rubin. "Think of womenovercoming all odds for love." She shows how women, playing by men's rules, have only reinforced their own weakness. So long as the gender wars are wagedon male turf, women will always be fighting a losing battle. It's time to win.Whatever your battlefield, "The Princessa" will incite you to act like awoman, fight like a woman, and live, at last, by your own rules.Harriet Rubin has worked in publishing for twenty years. In 1989 she foundedCurrency, where she has published the works of leadingexecutives, economists, management gurus, and CEOs. She has written for the "New York Time" s, the "Wall Street Journal," "Publishers Weekly," and women's magazines.She lives in New York City., 276815, Job Hunting, 276808, Careers, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275096, Literary Theory & Movements, 275068, History & Criticism, 275389, Poetry, Drama & Criticism, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 4119281, Psychology Textbooks, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276596, Writers & Writing, 276588, Women's Studies, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
