Editorial Reviews

Lisa Marcus
"...Generations offers a constructive antidote to handwriting and fingerpointing: Here is a collection that isn't afraid to confront power and the economics of class privilege that seems to structure academic feminism. Devoney Looser and E. Ann Kaplan gives us a vocabulary for articulating our more than generational gaps." -- The Women's Review of Books
