Description - Reclaiming Identity by Paula M. L. Moya
This collection of ten essays argues that identity is not just socially constructed but has real epistemic and political consequences. They examine the way theory, politics and activism clash with or complement each other, providing an alternative to the widely influential understandings of identity. Although this work is theoretical in orientation, it deals with specific social groups - Chicanas/os, African Americans, gays and lesbians, Asian American - and social issues directly related to race, ethnicity, sexuality, epistemology and political resistance.
