Editorial Reviews

Review

..".it is an important book to read, because it is simultaneously unsettling with the painful and mostly invisible realities it presents, profound with the clarity of its observations, and inspiring with the hopefulness of the struggles and perseverance it documents." -- Mobilization

"The strength of this volume lies in the intersection of fascinating case studies on contemporary feminist activism in the Americas with ample conversation about feminist methodological practices ... highly useful for graduate students, junior and more senior scholars who want to ensure that their research is accountable to and useful for the communities that they study." -- The Latin Americanist

"Shayne's edited volume sheds light on the real everyday and institutional challenges to doing feminist and activist research in the Americas ... Highly recommended." -- CHOICE

"Editor Julie Shayne makes a strong case that reflections of feminist risk-taking of varying kinds and degrees help us recognize both the challenges and benefits that can result. For this reason, the reflexive volume will be helpful to scholars engaging in feminist research in Latin America and other Southern/non-Western contexts." -- Gender & Society

"Julie Shayne took a risk with this book, and the result is impressive: By challenging the activism-research divide that US academies so often sustain, the authors in this collection challenge epistemological as well as national, race, class, age, and gender boundaries. Taking Risks is a must read for researchers and students alike!" -- Amy Lind, editor of Development, Sexual Rights, and Global Governance
