“This book is an intelligent, well-argued, articulate presentation of the problems with earlier feminist epistemologies that have adopted unsatisfactory stances for either observing or participating in the political world. Ring draws from both Hegel and Marx to propose a minimalist dialectic that requires neither essentialism nor a completely subjectivized stance. She speaks with elegance and clarity.” Arlene W. Saxonhouse, University of Michigan
“I admire this book. The stance it takes neither liberal nor deconstructionist seems to me both common sensible and rare. The author has a lively, engaged mind. Her approach is refreshingly rebellious, but she writes with great respect for the liberal and conservative traditions she criticizes, as she writes with great concern for the future of feminism.” Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, Wesleyan University
