Thinking Through: Essays on Feminism, Marxism and Anti-Racism brings together new and recent writing by Himani Bannerji linking social analysis with politics. Bannerji unravels "experience" in the sense of personal happenings and feelings, and elicits its social and political elements. She forwards a politics of anti-racist, marxist feminism which questions the notion of "distinct/separate oppressions" based on concepts of gender, race and class as separate "issues" or discrete categories spelling multiple social subjectivities or identities and political agencies. Thinking Through is an integrative, reflexive social analysis and politics which speaks in the language of class while expanding the notion of class as social relations of power, inclusive of racism and sexism in the context of capitalism, colonialism and slavery. Bannerji shifts the problematic and politics from one of a multicultural or liberal politics of difference to that of new ways of thinking through socialists projects. Incisive and important, this is a new approach to theorizing gender, "race", class and socialist revolution. -- Midwest Book Review
