Updates galore in the new 4th edition of Feminist Theory

By | May 23, 2012

We are thrilled to announce the publication of Feminist Theory, 4th Edition by Josephine Donovan which includes new material from Rebecca Traister and Reihan Salem, among others. 

A bit about the book:

This first major study of feminist theory, revised and updated here in its fourth edition, now takes the reader into the twenty-first century. It addresses the basic question, “What is feminism?’’ by outlining the various strands of feminist theory: liberal, cultural, Marxist-socialist, Freudian, and radical. This fourth edition brings the discussion up-to-date, integrating the developments in feminist theory that have emerged in the last two decades, such as ecofeminism, multiculturalism, postmodernism, and global feminism—including new material since the publication of the third edition (2000).

And a snippet from the preface to the 4th edition:

"My hope remains the one that motivated me to write this book in the first place (during the height of the second wave)—that it may help keep alive feminism’s historical identity and its historic promise."
