Revisioning the Political
Feminist Reconstructions of Traditional Concepts in Western Political Theory
Revisioning the Political by Nancy J. Hirschmann
Book DescriptionFeminist scholars have been remaking the landscape in political theory, and in this important book some of the most important feminist political theorists provide reconstructions of those concepts most central to the tradition of political philosophy. The goal is nothing less than the construction of a blueprint for a positive feminist theory.Many of these papers are completely new; others are extensions of important earlier work; two are reprints of classic papers. The result is a progress report on the continuing feminist project to re-envision traditional political theory. As such, it constitutes essential reading not only for feminist thinkers but also for traditional philosophers and political theorists, who will need to come to terms with these contemporary critiques and re-readings.

Gender, Class, and Freedom in Modern Political Theory, Paperback (November 2007)
Demonstrates that modern theories of freedom are susceptible to gender and class analysis and they must be analyzed in terms of gender and class in order to be understood. Through readings of major and minor works of Hobbes, Locke, Kant, and Mill, this book examines the gender and class foundations of the modern understanding of freedom.
Subject of Liberty, Paperback (September 2002)
Reconsiders the dominant Western understandings of freedom through the lens of women's real-life experiences of domestic violence, welfare, and Islamic veiling. This book argues that the typical approach to freedom found in political philosophy reduces the concept's complexity, which is more revealed by taking such practical issues into account.
Rethinking Obligation, Paperback (May 1992)» View all books by Nancy J. Hirschmann
Provides an innovative analysis of liberal obligation theory that uses feminism as a theoretical method for rethinking political obligations from the bottom up.
