Editorial Reviews

Review

"This wide-ranging and imaginative volume offers invaluable insight into the work of one of the most important cultural theorists and creative writers of our time. One can only applaud the contributors' efforts to do justice to the scope and depth of Anzaldua's dazzlingly original poetry and prose. This bold and illuminating book will help scholars in American Studies, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Religious Studies and a range of other fields, come to terms with the rich, multivalent achievement of the incomparable Gloria Anzaldua."--Shelley Fisher
Fishkin, Stanford University, past-president American Studies Association
"Reading this intellectually delicious anthology reminded me of Anzaldúa's stunning genius. It provides further evidence that she belonged to all of us and none of us at the same time. This book is a tantalizing invitation to expand our understanding of Anzaldúa's ideas. As an educator and as a Chicana, I have been yearning for this anthology for some time."--Edén Torres, University of Minnesota

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Robin Orlowski on January 2, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The world lost an innovative and articulate feminist-womanist thinker when Gloria Anzaldua died May 15, 2004 The author, editor, or co-editor of numerous books, Anzaldua was elevated to international prominence in 1982 through publication of "This bridge called my back: writings by radical women of color".

It made the then-radical proposition that women of color could not prioritize or negotiate among their various community identities-needing an ideology intersecting EVERYTHING. It also established Anzaldua as a major theoretical force to be reckoned with. Social justice movements could not create real change until acknowledging how they also benefit from hierarchies and subordination.

However, Dr Analouise Keating (Associate Professor of Women's Studies, Texas Woman's University) also lost a close friend; somebody sharing her vision of an America where interconnectedness was not `extra' but the norm. This intensely personal and political collection of writings pays tribute to Anzaldua, showcasing her empowering visions. Compiling this collection of writings was a way for Keating to work through the personal and professional pain of having lost Anzaldua.

I also enjoyed the essay by Carrie McMaster. Carrie and I were in the Texas Woman's University Women's Studies MA program together, sharing many critiques of disability, politics, and power. Even some women calling themselves `feminist' have very limited view of disability and consequently do not wish to recognize us as equals. McMaster conceptualizes women with disabilities as intrinsically being nepantlera because we have so many `outside' identities to navigate in the world.
