Editorial Reviews

Review


"With her nuanced views of these historical variable visible identities and her careful analyses and arguments against the ways alternative conceptualizations have unfolded in history and in philosophy and political theory, Linda Martín Alcoff has indeed, as she hoped, constructed a 'bridge"...over 'the huge gulf that separates races and genders in their country.'"--Hypatia

A must read for anyone interested in feminist philosophy and/or issues of identity. Martín-Alcoff is an experienced and sensitive thinker herself.

I selected this book as part of my dissertation literature research. I liked the organization and clarity of text. I recommend this book to others interested in learning about race, gender and the self.

Had to get this book for class. While I could understand it the author used unnecessarily large words. An entire sentence could and would last 3 or so lines. The complexity of the reading belied the complexity of the work. In fact the book toted fairly simple themes.
