Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The essays compiled here address the questions "Where have we come from?" and "What characterizes feminism now?" In response to the contentious and splintering term "postfeminist," the editors strive to demonstrate that feminism lives by building on a wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women. The collection is divided into four sections: Whatever happened to feminism?; the ethics of affect; the pleasures of agency; and where to feminism? The 17 contributors are academics in women's studies, literature, rhetoric, media studies, and other disciplines in the US and Europe. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
