Overview

Ideas for Action explores a wide range of leftist political traditions - including Marxism, anarchism, anti-imperialism, poststructuralism, feminism, critical race theory, and environmentalism.

Instead, she encourages both intellectual inquiry and practical application of political ideas, offering readers a gateway to orienting their own critical understandings and to making theory useable.
