Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Five essays, most by political scientists, address some of the problems that have arisen now that feminist thought has rejected Woman as a universal identity. They include discussions of identity, identity politics, and beyond; bodies, passions, and citizenship; whether the postmodern self is a feminized citizen; and feminizing race. They originally appeared in 2/1 (spring 1999). Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
