"Life without femininity-devoid of mystery, emotion, gentleness and the unerring power of a woman's love-is no life at all." In this groundbreaking book, Antonella Gambotto-Burke encourages a complete re-evaluation of motherhood, showing that our lack of respect for maternal love is at the root of our widespread dissatisfaction with modern life. Written from the heart of a woman who was herself revolutionized by her experience of motherhood, this is a book that challenges, comforts and inspires, offering positive solutions through personal revelation and intellectual exploration with some of the greatest visionaries of childcare. Mama is not only the key to a better world, but to a better relationship-with yourself, your child and your life.
About the Author
Antonella Gambotto-Burke is a critic, journalist, and novelist. A dual Italian/Australian citizen, she currently resides near Sydney, Australia. Antonella is the author of six books. Her work, both fiction and non-fiction, has been published in numerous anthologies. Dr. John Irvine, founder of the Read Clinic and Australia's highest-profile child psychologist, said Mama is almost to motherhood what Germaine Greer was to womanhood. "Antonella's book is a seminal piece that draws a line in the sand on what motherhood should be all about," he noted. "It is a statement that has the potential to realign motherhood, and is so intelligently written."
In the context of our postmodern society, Mama: Love, Motherhood and Revolution is undeniably the most important book of the 21st century. -- KJS Anand, Professor of Neurobiology
