About the Author

Mary E. Hawkesworth is Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. Her books include Embodied Power: Demystifying Disembodied Politics and The Oxford Handbook of Feminist Theory.


This cogent text is a teacher's `best choice': a comprehensive and comprehensible analysis of globalization and its raced-gendered harms, also featuring alternative visions and transformative practices. This welcome, timely new edition brings us up to date regarding empirical data, theoretical debates, gains, setbacks, conflicts, and ever-evolving challenges of pursuing transformative social justice. Hawkesworth's depiction of globalization demands and enables critical engagement, while her survey of transnational feminist activisms makes alternatives visible and encourages action. -- V. Spike Peterson, University of Arizona
The second edition of this volume is essential reading for those involved in all aspects of global governance. It will help them understand that `celebrating women as economic agents' is not just about words but about totally new perspectives and actions. -- Gillian Youngs, Canterbury Christ Church University
