Editorial Reviews

Review

`I am most impressed... by the range and timeliness of the topics covered, by the depth of the scholarship, by the scope and imagination of the collection. Nothing is more important than the frameworks we use when we undertake to represent the other. That feminists are taking the lead in this project is not surprising. The most significant discourse in the human disciplines in the last two decades has been inspired by the feminist position and its many variations as represented in this pathbreaking volume. The editors and their contributors are to be congratulated for a job very well done' - Norman K Denzin, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

`In this volume, researchers and research participants pry open the fiercely political and problematic aspects of Othering. Through theory, speculation, outrage and "collective girl talk", the writers of this text force readers to confront - without retreat or resolution - the thorns of representation in the 1990s... Finally, psychology is no longer the "reluctant sister" among the social sciences to wrestle with questions of representation, Othering and authorial responsibilities... Sue Wilkinson and Celia Kitzinger take us up to the cliff, and at moments over the edge, forcing readers to confront what "they" have been saying about "us" for so long... The text is a gift for those of us working at the treacherous and desirous borders of gender, race/ethnicity, class, sexuality and disability. You won't be the same after reading it!' - Michelle Fine, City University of New York

`The dilemma of writing about that which one is not, without simultaneously colonizing the Other in ways never intended, has haunted all of psychology and the other social and behavioral sciences from the beginning... I applaud the editors for their groundbreaking efforts to address this complex issue and to provide a truly innovative work... this is a genuinely exciting work, long overdue, and clearly a major contribution to the field' - Edward Sampson, California State University
