Enloe"... provocative analyses of the simultaneous oppressions of race, class, gender and sexuality... a powerful collection." -Gloria Anzaldua"... propels third world feminist perspectives from the periphery to the cutting edge of feminist theory in the 1990s." -Aihwa Ong... a carefully presented wealth of much-needed information." -Audre Lorde... it is a significant book." -The Bloomsbury Review... excellent... The nondoctrinaire approach to the Third World and to feminism in general is refreshing and compelling." -World Literature Today... an excellent collection of essays examining `Third World' feminism." -The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural TheoryThese essays document the debates, conflicts, and contradictions among those engaged in developing third world feminist theory and politics.
