Gender, Class, and Freedom in Modern Political Theory
Nancy J. Hirschmann

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book is bound to have a wide audience among both political theorists and feminists. One of its strengths is its analysis of the way in which the theories of freedom of Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Kant, and Mill are gendered. Hirschmann argues pointedly with other feminist interpretations of these theories and she provides an unusually sophisticated feminist analysis of the canon."--Marion Smiley, Brandeis University

"This is a great book. Hirschmann's thorough discussion of freedom--though based on a close reading of only five theorists--will, in my opinion, change how we think about freedom. Hirschmann also demonstrates why all good political theory needs to be feminist--not ideologically, but methodologically feminist. Historians of political thought and theorists of freedom and feminism will find much to challenge and provoke their thinking."--Brooke Ackerly, Vanderbilt University
