Book News Annotation:

The volume's 14 contributions, written by a group of international feminist and socialist scholars and activists, are divided into three sections: the intersection between colonialism, capitalism, and feminism; identity and culture; and organizing and building a feminist future.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This anthology brings together women of colour and Third world feminists and activists who grapple with questions of identity, sexuality, feminism and citizenship, envisioning in the process a new democratic future. The essays also chart the different varieties of feminism that take on questions of colonialism, imperialism, and the repressive role of colonial, neo-colonial and advanced capitalist states.

Synopsis:

Feminist Geneaologies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures provides a feminist anaylsis of the questions of sexual and gender politics, economic and cultural marginality, and anti-racist and anti-colonial practices both in the West and in the Third World. This collection, edited by Jacqui Alexander and Chandra Talpade Mohanty, charts the underlying theoretical perspectives and organization practices of the different varieties of feminism that take on questions of colonialism, imperialism, and the repressive rule of colonial, post-colonial and advanced capitalist nation-states. It provides a comparative, relational, historically grounded conception of feminist praxis that differs markedly from the liberal pluralist, multicultural understanding that sheapes some of the dominant version of Euro-American feminism. As a whole, the collection poses a unique challenge to the naturalization of gender based in the experiences, histories and practices of Euro-American women.

Synopsis:

'Feminist Genealogies' calls upon us to rethink feminist theories and practices within a complex intersectional and translational framework.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 353-403) and index.
