Editorial Reviews

Review

A thoughtful analysis and candid appraisal of the obstacles to transnational feminist understanding, Narayan's discussion of the problems is a step in the right direction.
Hypatia

Helpful addition for teaching non-Western and comparative women's studies courses.
National Women's Studies Journal --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Dislocating Cultures takes aim at the related notions of nation, identity, and tradition to show how Western and Third World scholars have misrepresented Third world cultures and feminist agendas.

Format: Paperback
Anyone researching the role of women in India won't want to miss this -- the author speaks insightfully about her feminism being a result of her personal experiences in India, while her mother and others accuse her of being "brainwashed" by Westerners. Narayan makes a strong case for "organic" Third World feminism.

Love this book! I read it for a graduate level class on intercultural relations and it really opened my eyes to the way we perceive things in our own culture versus other cultures. The author writes well and the content is really engaging. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in culture and understanding epistemologies.
