Description

The path-breaking Encyclopedia of Feminist Theories is an accessible, multidisciplinary insight into the complex field of feminist thought. The Encyclopedia contains over 500 authoritative entries commissioned from an international team of contributors and includes clear, concise and provocative explanations of key themes and ideas. Each entry contains cross references and a bibliographic guide to further reading; over 50 biographical entries provide readers with a sense of how the theories they encounter have developed out of the lives and situations of their authors.

Reviews

'The Encyclopedia of Feminist Theories represents an important contribution to feminist studies and scholarship and would be a valuable addition to reference collections in academic and research libraries, particularly those in institutions with women's studies programs. It also would be useful in large public libraries and special libraries in the humanities and social sciences.' - American Reference Books Annual 2000 Edition

'Academic libraries supporting Women's Studies programs should have it on their list for serious consideration. - Against the Grain
