Integrative Feminisms presents a unique discussion of feminist radicalism in North America in the context of feminism's global development since the 1960s. Across divergent agendas, Angela Miles illuminates the transformative power common to apparently diverse radical, eco-, Black, socialist, lesbian and "third world" feminists. Drawing on interviews with activists, historical and documentary research, and her own participation, the book delivers a unique and powerful analysis of concentric feminisms in a transnational context.
"This book brings alive the creative politics of feminists around the world who are, together, shaping a new future." -- Charlotte Bunch, Center for Women's Global Leadership
"Angela Miles has written a book for the '90s, one that will make Americans talk of Quebec feminism, the UN and African women['s] health movements all in one breath--it's a tonic against parochialism." -- Cynthia H. Enloe, Professor of Government, Clark University
Perspectives on Gender represents the very best feminist scholarship on gender in the social sciences. The books in the series advance the understanding of how inclusive of difference our perspectives need to be to capture what gender means and emphasize the important role of social change in and for gender relations.
