First published in 1990. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


"There are several titles that review the historical background and philosophical development of various branches of feminist theory, and Nye's new work must be counted among the best. It is lucid, comprehensive, and tightly written. The author's grasp of the dialectical and substantive intricacies is quite impressive. There are exceptionally good discussions of the relationship between Marxism and feminism, on feminism and psychoanalysis, and on deconstruction and feminism. Indeed, Nye's exposition of the notoriously arcane work of Lacan, Derrida, and the French semioticians is among the most masterful in the literature. . . . Should be viewed as one of the representative works in the field." -- Choice
