Description - Between Woman and Nation by Caren Kaplan
Divided into three parts, this collection attempts to describe the effect of the homeland, country, region, locality and globalization on the definition of the word "woman" from such diverse places as Quebec to Beirut. The first part examines constructions of nationalism and communities whose practices complicate these definitions. The second section investigates regulations of particular nation-states and how they affect the lives of women, while the third presents studies of transnational identity formation, in which contributors discuss ideas such as "multicultural nationalism" and "global feminism".
