This outstanding collection of essays brings together for the first time the writings of a group of well–known figures in the Marxist–feminist tradition. The essays subject the work of significant thinkers in classic and contemporary social and political theory – from Marx to Foucault – to critical appraisal. More importantly, they go beyond the criticism to offer genuine advances in the way social and political life can be reconceptualized in the light of feminist critique. Contributions include Linda Nicholson on feminism and Marx; Nancy Fraser on a discourse ethic of solidarity; Iris Young on feminist critiques of moral and political theory; Judith Butler on Beauvoir, Wittig and Foucault.
