Feminism and postcolonialism are allies, and the impressive selection of writings brought together in this volume demonstrate how fruitful that alliance can be. Reina Lewis and Sara Mills have assembled a brilliant selection of thinkers, organizing them into six categories: Gendering Colonialism and Postcolonialism/Radicalizing Feminism, Rethinking Whiteness, Redefining the 'Third World' Subject, Sexuality and Sexual Rights, Harem and the Veil, and Gender and Post/colonial Relations. A bibliography complements the wide-ranging essays. This is the ideal volume for any reader interested in the development of postcoloniality and feminist thought.
