Book Description

Spanning nearly two decades, from 1980 to 1996, this Reader investigates the debates which have best characterized feminist theory. Including such articles as Pornography and Fantasy, The Body and Cinema, Nature as Female, and A Manifesto for Cyborgs, the extracts examine thoughts on sexualtiy as a domain of exploration, the visual representation of women, what being a feminist means, and why feminists are increasingly involved in political struggles to negotiate the context and meaning of technological development. With writings by bell hooks, Alice Jardine, and Andrea Dworkin, this multicultural Reader reflects the dynamic nature of feminist debates and the genuine diversity within current feminist theory. Capturing the sense of the rapid movement within feminist theory and criticism, Feminisms is ideal for anyone interested in feminism and the history behind it.

Editorial Reviews


`a very impressive collection ... a remarkably thorough cross-section of texts ... essays that are readable and exciting ... The section on Technologies is especially original, provocative, and forward looking.' Elaine Showalter, Princeton University

`rich and comprehensive collection of diverse and challenging essays' Lynne Segal, Middlesex University

`a comprehensive, ambitious and brilliantly thought-out collection ... This reader is the ideal companion for anyone who is engaged in research or reflection on contemporary feminism' Rosi Braidotti, Utrecht University

`a wonderfully diverse sampling of the richness that is feminisms ... a valuable text for classes and an equally valuable reference tool' Jean F. O'Barr, Duke University

`exceptionally clear and useful thematic introductions that highlight debates and diversity' Barbara D. Miller, George Washington University

`One could not have a more comprehensive guide to western feminist theory of the last sixteen years than Feminisms provides. Their introductions to the materials convey the excitement that this diversity brings.' Jennifer Hornsby, Birkbeck College, London

`Feminisms is that ideal text and reference book ... Paced with substantive (and in some cases highly original) introductions throughout ... while it might be less than academic to label Feminisms "a great read", it is.' Linda Wagner-Martin, University of North Carolina

`Innovative, inclusive, interesting.' Shulamit Reinharz, Brandeis University

`an anthology which will no doubt influence scholarship for years to come' Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Columbia University
