About the Author:

Nancy A. Naples is Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Sociology at the University of Connecticut. She is the author of many books, including Feminism and Method: Ethnography, Discourse Analysis, and Activist Research, and Grassroots Warriors: Activist Mothering, Community Work, and the War on Poverty.

Review:

"The book's major contribution is in providing the empirical material to suggest an alternative model of citizenship. Rather than identifying the model citizen as the "voter," the community "volunteer," or the aspiring politician, citizenship here is depicted as crossing the boundaries between paid and unpaid work, engaging with the caretaking work of the local community, and challenging the strictures of a deeply hierarchical society in all domains of life.."
-"Mobilization, Fall 2001
"One hopes this book will serve as a lesson for a renewed "war on poverty." Upper-division undergraduates and above."
-"Choice, Feb 1999
""Grassroots Warriors, provides a welcome counterpoint to the harsh judgments of those who disparage poor women for lacking work and family ethics and illustrates instead how the community action programs provided women opportunities to develop skills that enhanced their abilities to contribute to their communities. Nancy Naples provides a theoretically insightful analysis of the progressive possibilities of anti-poverty policy."
-Jill Quadagno, Florida State University
