"Over the last two decades, Chandra Talpade Mohanty has produced an extraordinary body of writings on transnational feminism, radically changing the way we think about such categories as 'third world women,' 'women of color' and 'globalization.' This volume combines her now classic essays with new writings that accentuate the centrality of anticapitalist feminist theories and practices to the most expansive and forward-looking version of women's studies today." Angela Y. Davis "Chandra Talpade Mohanty is unequivocally one of the most important feminist theorists and scholars writing and publishing today. In this collection, her essays take on new meaning to play important parts in what is both a dynamic full-scale analysis of the complex histories of the exploitation of women within neocolonial capitalism and an elaboration of anti-racist pedagogies and anti-capitalist solidarity practices." Lisa Lowe, author of Immigrant Acts: On Asian American Cultural Politics "The juxtaposition of these essays brings into sharp focus the theoretical framework Chandra Talpade Mohanty has developed and makes visible the enormity, the force, and the uniqueness of her contribution." Ruth Frankenberg, editor of Displacing Whiteness: Essays in Social and Cultural Criticism "Feminism without Borders is a powerful collection of essays that inform, engage, move, and stimulate. Mohanty's focus is on anticapitalist and antiglobalization struggles, in concert with practical ideas about how to create collective visions and organize transnationally... Feminism without Borders ... insist[s] on a politics of engagement that is guided by globally sensitive spatial and temporal considerations and grounded in unequivocal feminist antiracist and anticapitalist sentiments."--Enivornment and Planning D: Society and Space, 2005 Volume 23 issue 1
