Irene Diamond has written a passionate and provocative book that challenges the feminist movement to step beyond its preconceptions. . . . We desperately need this synthesis. -from the Foreword by Starhaw
In a wide-ranging critique of Western thought and practice, ecofeminist Irene Diamond raises unsettling questions about the ethic of control that permeates how we think about fertility, sexuality, agriculture, and the environment.
Irene Diamond teaches political science and women's studies at the University of Oregon. Her previous books include Sex Roles in the State House and the coedited volumes Feminism and Foucault: Reflections on Resistance and Reweaving the World: The Emergence of Ecofeminism.
