Overview

This major new book is the most up-to-date account of current feminist debates, written by some of the world's leading feminist thinkers. The 1980s saw a devastating critique of the simple unities of woman or woman's experience as a theoretical basis for feminist politics. The 1990s brought a powerful reappraisal of the universalizing tendencies in mainstream political, social and cultural theory, as feminists explored the deeper biases that go beyond 'mere sexism' to structure the very terms of theoretical debate.

Destabilizing Theory pushes this debate further with major new essays by Michele Barrett and Anne Phillips, and specially commissioned papers from prominent theorists in Britain, the USA and Australia, who take up and develop the themes in a variety of contexts.
