Title:Gender and the Politics of History
Columbia University Press, 1999 revised edition. Very good second-hand condition. This landmark work, from renowned feminist historian Joan Wallach Scott, is a trenchant critique of women's history and gender inequality. Exploring topics ranging from language and gender to the politics of work and family, Gender and the Politics of History is a crucial interrogation of the uses of gender as a tool for cultural and historical analysis. The revised edition - in addition to providing a new generation of readers with access to a classic text in feminist theory and history - reassesses the book's fundamental topic: the category of gender. In provocatively arguing that gender no longer serves to destabilize our understanding of sexual difference, the new preface and new chapter open a critical dialogue with the original book.
