Promotional Information

In political theory today, feminist theory is the area most alive with innovative and exciting work, and Iris Marion Young is one of the leading contributors to this development. In these essays, she shows how a feminist perspective can awaken us to new issues and transform familiar questions in both political theory and practical politics. -- Joseph H. Carens, University of Toronto

About the Author

Iris Marion Young is Professor of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. Her previous books include Justice and the Politics of Difference (Princeton) and Throwing Like a Girl and Other Essays in Feminist Philosophy and Social Theory.


"In all of these essays, Young makes political theory into 'the art of the possible'. It is her great strength as a theorist that she is able to identify issues in both academic literature and the public mind that philosophers have construed too narrowly, or failed to address altogether... Young is undoubtedly one of the more intelligently radical philosophers writing in the US."--Philosophy in Review
