Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this captivating collection of unpublished and published essays, one of our most important scholars, Paula Gunn Allen, explores the symbiotic relationship between Native American culture and the larger Western world. Through her own history and that of other Native peoples, she searches for a connection that will link the eco-spiritual and implicitly multicultural heritage to the demands of an increasingly global and culturally unilateral community.

Synopsis:

Reflections on Boundary-Busting, Border-Crossing Loose Canons Off the Reservation gives us the best of Allen's work, from powerful critiques of Western social constructs to astute analyses of Native American literature of the late twentieth century, as well as the deeply personal history from which her feminist-centered spiritual wisdom emerges.
