Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures
Feminist Genealogies calls upon us to rethink feminist theories and practices within a complex intersectional and transnational framework. In contesting prevailing notions of global feminism, which tend to depart from resistance practices crafted in the West, Mohanty and Alexander have chosen essays that create new and provocative conversations among activist women involved in important transformative political projects in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. These conversations demand that we think deeply about advanced capitalist relations and how they reproduce and are reproduced through forms of domination that are sexualized, gendered, and racialized. This timely collection of essays should stimulate new discussions about feminist political engagement and about feminist organizing practices as ways of envisioning and struggling for democratic futures. - Angela Y.

Midterm: The Elections of 1994 in Context
Midterm: The Elections of 1994 in Context examines the electoral and policy changes so rarely seen in American elections. It examines the contemporary concerns unique to the 1994 election: the role of the religious right, the “angry white male,” the Contract with America, and voter antipathy toward the first two years of the Clinton administration. By looking at the election in context with other mid-term elections, from 1810 to the 1994 election, we gain a thoughtful analysis of the 1994 election. Hamilton Professor of Government Philip Klinkner is the editor of this work as well as the author of chapter 4, Court and Country in American Politics: The Democratic Party and the 1994 Election . Theodore Eismeier, the James L. Ferguson Professor of Government at Hamilton College, is also a contributor. More ...
