The path-breaking encyclopedia of Feminist Theory is an accessible, multidisciplinary insight into the complex field of feminist thought. The Encyclopedia contains over authoritative entries from an international team of contributors and includes clear, concise and provocative explanations of key themes and ideas. Each entry contains bibliographic guide to further reading. The entries included here provide readers with a sense of how the theories they encounter have developed over the years and how is the field perceived today. The work is organized thematically to stress the individual areas of feminist thought in a more focused manner.
Areas covered include:
* FEMINIST THEORY (e.g. thought and types of theory, perspectives on radical feminism, biological behaviour)
* FEMALE METHODOLOGY (e.g. gender theory, feminist epistemology, sex and gender, cross-cultural feminist ethics)
* FAMILY, KINSHIP AND MARRIAGE (e.g. sexual orientation, surrogacy, monogamy, politics of hierarchy)
* FEMINISM AND LITERATURE (e.g. sexuality wars, feminism and semantics, pornography & censorship, cyber-feminism)
The set fulfills the need for a comprehensive yet focused work serving two purposes; one – the availability of an introductory work for students, and second – a work which serves as a refresher course for the teachers and scholars in the field. The Encyclopaedia of Feminist Theory clearly is the work meeting this want.
