CO-WINNER OF THE AMERICAN POLITICAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION'S 1992 VICTORIA SCHUCK AWARD 'This book is essential reading for political scientists wanting to see how feminist theory is transforming their discipline and a major new contribution to progressive thought on the topical issue of 'democracy'. Written with detachment and dry wit, Engendering Democracy takes feminist questions to the heart of political theory.' Michele Barrett, Department of Social Sciences and Humanities, City University 'She is a rare academic writer who can tackle ideologies in everyday language: the book is a joy to read.' New Statesman and Society 'An intelligent and undidactic discussion of a wide field of feminist and democratic theory which will be fruitfully inconvenient for both the conservative and the revolutionary.' Political Studies 'Engendering Democracy deserves to be read widely.' Radical Philosophy 'A very readable account of how feminism challenges democratic theories.' Women in Philosophy Newsletter 'A highly readable, concisely argued treatment of the relationship between feminist theory and democracy.' Queens Law Journal 'An invaluable collection of the writings of one of Britain's best feminist political theorists and a fascinating record of the development of the key political concerns of the past decade.'
