    At last - an intelligent and accessible introduction to the relationship between feminism and deconstruction.
    In this incisive and illuminating book, Diane Elam unravels:
    * the contemporary relevance of feminism and deconstruction
    * how we can still understand and talk about the materiality of women's bodies
    * whether gender can be distinguished from sex
    * the place of ethics and political action in the light of postmodernist theory.
    Clearly and brilliantly written, Feminism and Deconstruction is essential reading for anyone who needs a no-nonsense but stimulating guide through one of the mazes of contemporary theory.
