Power is clearly a crucial concept for feminist theory. Insofar as feminists are interested in analyzing power, it is because they have an interest in understanding, critiquing, and ultimately challenging the multiple array of unjust power relations affecting women in contemporary Western societies, including sexism, racism, heterosexism, and class oppression.In The Power of Feminist Theory, Amy Allen diagnoses the inadequacies of previous feminist conceptions of power, and draws on the work of a diverse group of theorists of power, including Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and Hannah Arendt, in order to construct a new feminist conception of power. The conception of power developed in this book enables readers to theorize domination, resistance, and solidarity, and, perhaps more importantly, to do so in a way that illuminates the interrelatedness of these three modalities of power.

This open-ended anthology is a journey into the very canon that Mary Daly has argued to be patriarchal and demeaning to women. This volume deauthorizes the official canon of Western philosophy and disrupts a related story told by some feminists who claim that Daly&’s work is unworthy of re-reading because it contains fatal errors. The editors and contributors attempt to prove that Mary Daly is located in the Western intellectual tradition. Daly may be highly critical of conventional Western epistemological and theological traditions, but she nevertheless appropriates themes &“out-of-context&” for the building of her own systematic philosophy. The following are just a few of the many themes explored in this volume: &• the question of subjectivity understood as an ongoing process of be-coming &• the ambiguity of the need for feminists of colonial nations to speak out about violence against women in other parts of the world while that speaking carries with it the stamp of a colonial location &• the territoriality of lesbian and women&’s space &• the theological dimensions of twentieth-century Western philosophy. Contributors are Wanda Warren Berry, Purushottama Bilimoria, Debra Campbell, Molly Dragiewicz, Frances Gray, Amber L. Katherine, AnaLouise Keating, Anne-Marie Korte, Mar&ía Lugones, Geraldine Moane, Sheilagh A. Mogford, Laurel C. Schneider, Renuka Sharma, and Marja Suhonen.

In Feminist Interpretations of John Rawls, Ruth Abbey collects eight essays responding to the work of John Rawls from a feminist perspective. An impressive introduction by the editor provides a chronological overview of English-language feminist engagements with Rawls from his Theory of Justice onward. Abbey surveys the range of issues canvassed by feminist readers of Rawls, as well as critics’ wide disagreement about the value of Rawls’s corpus for feminist purposes. The eight essays that follow testify to the continuing ambivalence among feminist readers of Rawls. From the perspectives of political theory and moral, social, and political philosophy, the contributors address particular aspects of Rawls’s work and apply it to a variety of worldly practices relating to gender inequality and the family, to the construction of disability, to justice in everyday relationships, and to human rights on an international level. The overall effect is to give a sense of the broad spectrum of possible feminist critical responses to Rawls, ranging from rejection to adoption. Aside from the editor, the contributors are Amy R. Baehr, Eileen Hunt Botting, Elizabeth Brake, Clare Chambers, Nancy J. Hirschmann, Anthony Simon Laden, Janice Richardson, and Lisa H. Schwartzman.

Cet ouvrage prolonge les travaux rassemblés dans L'objet identité: épistémologie et transversalité (2006) où, depuis leur discipline respective, plusieurs des chercheurs ici réunis s'étaient penchés sur l'objet identité. Dissidence et identités plurielles se propose maintenant d'étudier l'objet identité moins pour sa dimension épistémologique que sous l'angle des pratiques individuelles et collectives participant à son élaboration, que celle-ci prenne la forme de communautés ou de nations, de groupes raciaux ou ethniques, ou d'identités sexuelles et de genres. Essentiellement centrée sur les cultures anglophones, l'optique de cet ouvrage est caractérisée par la pluralité : disciplinaire, thématique et contextuelle. L'objectif commun à tous les chercheurs est de réfléchir à la transformation sociale, particulièrement en regard de la théorisation contemporaine sur les identités. A l'épreuve de la réalité mondaine, penser l'identité est-il d'aucune utilité ? Promesse d'un progrès scientifique et social et, en même temps, menace de fermeture, voire de repli, le combat pour l'égalité et le projet humaniste qui le sous-tend ne peuvent pas passer outre une réflexion sur le rapport qu'entretiennent la théorisation de l'identité et la transformation sociale à laquelle elle est censée aboutir, quand celle-ci ne la précède pas. Théorisées et mises en pratiques, les identités sont marquées du sceau d'une ambivalence consubstantielle à la position minoritaire : la dissidence. C'est cette ambivalence de la dissidence identitaire que l'ensemble des articles se propose d'analyser, aussi bien sur le plan textuel que sur celui des mouvements socio-politiques. Ainsi, les dissensions dans les manifestes littéraires et politiques, les positions discordantes dans les discours théoriques et historiographiques, la subversion dans les textes de fiction, les polémiques dans les lectures d'œuvres d'art, réfléchissent-elles les oppositions, clivages et réorientations stratégiques dans les mouvements des groupes minorés. Parallèlement, les auteurs prêtent une attention notable à la négociation délicate que commande le passage de la théorie sur la dissidence identitaire aux pratiques individuelles et collectives mises en jeu par ses acteurs sociaux et politiques. Pour que, dans cette translation, ne viennent à gripper la proposition et la mise en place d'une politique globale et égalitaire des identités, au-delà des seuls intérêts particuliers ou partisans.

The Middle East has become a place that almost everyone "knows" something about. The region is rarely considered a site for socially conscious activism, and is frequently written off as culturally defined by Islam, strongly anti-Western, and uniquely susceptible to irrational political radicalism, authoritarianism, and terrorism. However, as this new volume reveals, the region is rich with political mobilizations that neither inexorably lead toward democratization nor degenerate into violence. The authors present case studies of Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey inspired by Social Movement Theory (SMT). However, they also critique and expand the horizons of SMT's classical concepts of political opportunity structure and collective action frames, and mobilize structures and repertoires of contention based on intensive fieldwork. This strong empirical base allows for a nuanced understanding of contexts, culturally conditioned rationality, the strengths and weaknesses of local networks, and innovation in contentious action in the enduring authoritarian regimes of the region where, with the exception of Turkey, there is little sign of democratization.
