At last - an intelligent and accessible introduction to the relationship between feminism and deconstruction.
In this incisive and illuminating book, Diane Elam unravels:
* the contemporary relevance of feminism and deconstruction
* how we can still understand and talk about the materiality of women's bodies
* whether gender can be distinguished from sex
* the place of ethics and political action in the light of postmodernist theory.
Clearly and brilliantly written, Feminism and Deconstruction is essential reading for anyone who needs a no-nonsense but stimulating guide through one of the mazes of contemporary theory.
