Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An anthology of 12 essays representing "third world" women writers and film-makers from a localized perspective, intervening (as the title tells us) in the dominant view that third world women are passive victims needing to be liberated by Western feminists. Turning the tables on intellectual colonialism, the contributing scholars discuss the ways particular artists in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean use their marginal positions to challenge and resist different political structures, including nationalism, revolutions, religious fundamentalism, and dictatorships. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
