Engendering Modernity: Feminism, Social Theory, and Social Change examines the ambivalent relationship of women to modernity, and of feminist theory to the controversial discussions about modernism and post-modernism. Barbara Marshall argues that women's experience, in all its diversity, should be retrieved from the margins of theory and repositioned at the center of the debates about modernity. Marshall provides an exhaustive analysis of a wide range of social and critical theory, including the writings of Jurgen Habermas, Anthony Giddens, Michael Foucault, and Cornel West. She challenges feminist critiques of modernism, arguing that the Enlightenment tradition (flawed as it is) can be reshaped without severing all ties to its principles of emancipation. Engendering Modernity is a major contribution to feminism, critical theory, and sociology, raising the debate about modernism and postmodernism to a new level. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
