Overview

A generation ago, they wrote Beyond the Fragments. Inspired by the activism of the 1970s and facing the imminent triumph of the Right under Margaret Thatcher, they sought to apply our experiences as feminists to creating stronger bonds of solidarity in a new kind of Left movement. Since then the obstacles facing them have grown formidably—deepening recession, environmental pollution, falling real wages, and savage welfare cuts. New forms of resistance have appeared, but how are they to coalesce? In three new essays to this third edition of Beyond the Fragments, Shelia Rowbotham, Lynne Segal, and Hilary Wainwright return to the fraught question of how to consolidate diverse upsurges of rebellion into effective, open, democratic Left coalitions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Beyond the Fragments reminds us of the ways in which the post-1968 radicalism exemplified the power of relationships, the importance of personal experience, and the potential of collective creativity, the question of what further elusive ingredients are necessary to realize an effective coalition for transformative political change still remains.”  —Red Pepper magazine
