Staff Reviews

This brilliant volume captures Angela Davis' immense talent for revisionist historical analysis and counter-cultural social theory. The titular themes of identity form a powerful braid of justice, and as a result of their myriad connections this has become nothing short of the textbook for intersectionality.

— Derek


A powerful study of the women's liberation movement in the U.S., from abolitionist days to the present, that demonstrates how it has always been hampered by the racist and classist biases of its leaders. From the widely revered and legendary political activist and scholar Angela Davis.
