Examining the development of ecofeminism from the 1980s antimilitarist movement to an internationalist ecofeminism in the 1990s, Sturgeon explores the ecofeminist notions of gender, race, and nature. She moves from detailed historical investigations of important manifestations of US ecofeminism to a broad analysis of international environmental politics.

Noel Sturgeon is Associate Professor of Women's Studies and Graduate Faculty in American Studies at Washington State University.
"Noel Sturgeon's book comprehensively explores the wide diversity within ecofeminist theory and activism while challenging the common assumptions that (1) feminist theory is, or should be, anti-essentialist, without any reliance on essentialist constructs, and that (2) all essentialist constructs are politically problematic, having no political usefulness. With the number of feminist and ecofeminist perspectives ever increasing and thus presenting a real danger of disunity across differences within the feminist movement the need for strategic alliances between feminists is all the more urgent. In this sense Sturgeon's argument is itself strategically well timed. Her book illuminates the ecofeminist literature that preceses it and affords clear direction for future work." -- Philosophy in Review
"As both scholar and activist, Sturgeon approaches ecofeminism with a critical yet sympathetic voice, offering fresh insights that will be immediately useful. Racism is a woman's issue, as Sturgeon makes clear, and addressing this issue is central to the history and future of ecofeminism and all movements for social and environmental justice. We have waited a long time for a book like this one." -- Greta Gaard, University of Minnesota
"... makes an invaluable contribution to the academic dialogue on ecofeminism by providing a historical/political context for ecofeminist thought as it has developed internationally and in the US... As a cultural critic with experience as an activist in the women's peace movement, Sturgeon seems perfectly positioned to tell... her narrative.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
