About the Author

Nancy A. Naples is Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies at the University of Connecticut. She has published several books, including Women's Activism and Globalization, Teaching Feminist Activism, and Grassroots Warriors, which was a finalist for the C. Wright Mills Award from the Society for the Study of Social Problems (all published by Routledge).


"This is an exciting and brilliant book that transforms sociological method....This is frankly feminist, frankly critical, frankly committed to issues of social justice. It's committed also to an idea of research that reaches from people's own and necessarily divergent experiences into the forms of power that shape them....Women's studies has needed a research method and here is one that is wholly committed to feminist objectives and principles."
-Dorothy E. Smith
"A stimulating, important, and accessible book for classroom use. Naples brings distinctive insights from her work in policy analysis and grassroots activism to her explorations of epistemological and methodological issues. She demonstrates how concerns for social justice can advance the growth of knowledge."
-Sandra Harding, editor of "The Feminist Standpoint Theory Reader
