Book Description

Power relations among humans have likely been a topic of interest since long before any historical claims to its nature were proffered. This book recognizes that power and gender may be rooted in the experience of power in western society.


'In all chapters, the authors' unwillingness to simply accept the frameworks that have gone before, especially those based in Western stereotypes, biases and assumptions, is their greatest contribution ... That they do not agree ... makes this volume even more useful and interesting as well as innovative.' - Kelley Hayes-Gilpin Northern Arizona University
