The Feminist Theory Reader provides a revolutionary new approach to anthologizing the important works in feminist theory by incor¬porating the voices of women of color and postcolonial scholars throughout. Classic works in feminist theory by scholars such as Simone de Beauvoir, Adrienne Rich, and Judith Butler appear alongside Amnta Basu, Gloria Anzaldiia, and Chandra Talpade Mohanty, providing both local and global perspectives and infusing the collection with the vitality needed for understanding feminist theory in the twenty-first century. REVIEWS: "Finally, here's a collection of feminist theory writings that is truly worldly. This is a book for all of us." -Cynthia Enloe, author of Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives --- "The Feminist Theory Reader transforms and transcends current debates. Neither assuming the centrality of "western white" feminist theory nor the automatic superiority of its critics, this stunning volume interweaves critical insights from a range of scholars and activists. In doing so. the editors illuminate the formative role played by women of color and international feminists in shaping feminist theory." -Nancy A. Hewitt, editor of A Companion to American Women's History. "The Feminist Theory Reader stands out for its attention to global perspectives in each of its sections. Intelligently organized and diverse, this text will enrich and enliven the feminist theory classroom. It is a valuable contribution to women's studies pedagogy." -Bonnie Zimmerman, editor of Encyclopedia of Lesbian Histories and Cultures
"Fulfills an essential need for gender and women's studies faculty today-to introduce students to the full range of sophisticated thinking by women around the globe about conditions of women around the globe. This is a rich contemporary collection." -Judith Kegan Gardiner, editor of Masculinity Studies and Feminist Theory: New Directions
