About the Author:

France Winddance Twine is Associate Professor at the University Of California, Santa Barbara. She is an editor of Racing Research, Researching Race, available from NYU Press.

Review:

"Given all the talk about globalization as the engine of homogenization, it is a relief to find in these collected essays an encyclopedia of antiracist and feminist strategies for social movement today. Rarely does the local emerge as so textured in a context that emphasizes the complexity to the global itself."

-Robyn Wiegman,Margaret Taylor Smith Director of Women's Studies, Duke University

"This valuable anthology expands out understanding of feminism, anti-racism—and by extension racism itself—through richly interdisciplinary, cross cultural accounts of diverse forms of activism. The authors provide moving testimony to the importance of linking feminist and anti-racist struggles and the complexities involved in doing so."

-Amrita Basu,Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies, Amherst College

"Twine and Blee break new ground with case studies of international, feminist, and antiracist struggles."

-Feminist Collections

”The editors have done an admirable job of drawing together works of diversely positioned authors, each of whom approach the topic of feminism and antiracism from their own unique personal and disciplinary standpoint.”

-Anne Wagner,Dept of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education, University of Toronto

"Although much contemporary feminist scholarship stresses the way gender dynamics intersect with those of race and class, it is often difficult to link those abstractions to concrete struggles. In this remarkable collection, authors from different locations, different disciplines, and different visions write about such efforts with an honesty that is always refreshing, sometimes painful. Whether describing successes in Indian slums, conflicts in California, or campaigns in France, the articles in this collection offer important insights into strategic possibilities—and pitfalls—for progressive feminist organizing."

-Gay Seidman,Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin, Madison
