Women, the State, and Welfare

Women, the State, and Welfare

by Linda Gordon

Editorial Reviews

Nine contributions address such issues as the role of state policies and ideologies in defining gender differences, state influence over the boundaries between public and domestic spheres, state control over women's reproductive and productive lives, and the efforts of women to influence state policy. Paper edition (unseen), $16.95. An anthology of essays (most previously published in specialist journals, some edited or rewritten for presentation here) about women and the US welfare state. The disciplinary and theoretical perspectives vary, but the contributions evidence a collective process in the development of a gender analysis that incorporates divisions of class and race. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
