Gender and the Politics of History by Joan W. Scott
Book DescriptionWinner, in the original edition, of the 1989 Joan Kelly Prize of the American Historical Association, this landmark work from a renowned feminist historian is a trenchant critique of women's history and gender inequality. Exploring topics ranging from language and gender to the politics of work and family, Gender and the Politics of History is a crucial interrogation of the uses of gender as a tool for cultural and historical analysis. The revised edition-in addition to providing a new generation of readers with access to a classic text in feminist theory and history-reassesses the book's fundamental topic: the category of gender. In provocatively arguing that gender no longer serves to destabilize our understanding of sexual difference, the new preface and new chapter open a critical dialogue with the original book.

Parite!, Paperback (December 2005)
France is in the throes of a crisis defined by the rhetoric of a universalism that takes the abstract individual to be the representative not only of citizens but also of the nation. In this book, the author shows how the requirement for abstraction has led to the exclusion of women from French politics.
Only Paradoxes to Offer, Paperback (August 1997)
A study of the problem faced by feminists arguing for political rights in the context of liberal democracy. They argued that the differences between men and women were irrelevant for citizenship, yet by acting on behalf of women, they introduced the very idea of difference they sought to eliminate.
Transitions, Environments, Translations, Hardback (July 1997)
Explores the varied meanings of feminism in different political, cultural and historical contexts. Scholars from various countries provide documentation of different political and cultural initiatives, and they explore the terms by which successful collaborations might be made.
Reason's Muse, Paperback (March 1994)» View all books by Joan W. Scott
The French Revolution proclaimed the equality of all human beings, yet women remained less than equal in the new society. The exclusion of women at the birth of modern democracy required considerable justification. This book traces the course of this reasoning through early 19th-century texts.
