Editorial Reviews


Winner of the 1999 Barbara Perkins and Geroge Perkins Award, Society for the Study of Narrative Literature
One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1999

From the Inside Flap

"[Mappings] proposes a thoroughly multiculturalist and geopolitical definition of feminism that significantly expands the theoretical boundaries of feminist theory and that underlines the importance of narrative as a meaning-making process.... Friedman casts a wide net, one whose timeliness, thoughtfulness, and engagement should prove inspiring and worthwhile for a large number of readers."--Joseph A. Boone, University of Southern California

"Here is a work by a critic-theorist who is already a major voice in the fields of feminist, cultural, and narrative theories. This volume is a rich and thought-provoking contribution to all three areas.... Unlike many other books on the same topics, it will appeal to the general reader, as well as to the specialist. Friedman is never pedantic, but her point of view comes through strong and clear. Her engagingly lucid writing style will certainly make her readable in more than one context."--R. Radhakrishnan, University of Massachusetts

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

7 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Laurie Winslow on July 22, 2000
Format: Paperback
Friedman has seen the post-modern future. This book ostensibly addresses feminists, but it spends so little time actually addressing this point of view that it self-demonstrates the more inclusive, globalistic, humanistic that it posits. I particularly appreciated the combining of literary review with this new global social theory of identity formation. My only criticism would be that the highly specialized jargon Friedman uses can at first seem obstructive. Overall, invaluable.
