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

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.
