Description - Modern Feminist Thought by Imelda Whelehan

This introduction to modern Anglo-American thought provides a critical survey of dominant trends in feminist theory since 1968. From the historical roots of second wave feminism to current debates in 1990s feminist theory and politics, it sets out the different philosophies and political positions of the various feminist approaches. Topics covered include: liberal feminism, marxist/socialist feminism, radical feminism, lesbian feminism, black feminism, men in feminism, postmodernism, media and post-feminism. Wide-ranging and up-to-date, it summarizes key positions and debates clearly and succinctly yet remains conceptually challenging. "Modern Feminist Thought" concludes that feminism is still, in its new academic form, a potent political force.
