From the Publisher"Providing important insights for feminist theory and globalization studies, Women and the Politics of Place takes us into the often neglected realms of globalization found in concrete places, organizations, and women's bodies that highlight affirmative initiatives to improve life and meet basic needs. This book is a welcome and sophisticated tool for understanding the places of women in the ever-evolving spaces of contemporary global politics and culture."
"All of the essays point to existing practices within place-based women’s struggles that represent both resistance and place-based alternatives to the presumed hegemony of patriarchal neoliberal globalization. As Alvarez points out, the volume contributes immensely to the awaremess of the global ‘in place’ while also helping to "disturb place-based strategies" that may only be suffocating for women or apologias for the maintainance of power asymmetries...Highly recommended."
"Explores the experiences of women across a wide cross-section of political realities of power. The voices of these women speak eloquently, demonstrating the value of their experience. This is particularly important in a time when global entities seem to promote free-market Darwinism as a viable response to world poverty and inequality... brings home the connectedness of movements in a profound way."
