Essays on Feminism, Marxism and Anti-racism
Thinking Through brings together new and recent writing by Himani Bannerji. Through anti-racist, Marxist feminism, Bannerji questions the notion of distinct/separate oppressions which understands gender, race and class as separate issues. Incisive and important, Thinking Through offers a new strategy to theorizing gender, race, class and socialist revolution.
"Himani Bannerji’s essays illuminate the politics of difference as they affect women of colour in the post-colonial world, raising questions that go beyond the analysis of Marx or Fanon. The narration, that draws on her personal and political anguish, is precise and powerful in refuting the myth of universal sisterhood.... A major text in the study of cultural identity."— Swasti Mitter, Gender and Development Studies, United Nations University, Institute of New Technologies, The Netherlands
