Product description

Review

This book provides clear and thoughtful re-readings of the tradition from a feminist perspective and reincorporates a classical notion of civil society... recommended.

Review

Sibyl Schwarzenbach takes a large view of political philosophy, both its history and its contemporary manifestations, but stays selective in her treatment of social philosophers from Aristotle to John Rawls. Her book is a substantial accomplishment, on both the historical and systematic levels, and is presented vigorously and appealingly.

(Allen Wood, Stanford University and Indiana University)

Sibyl Schwarzenbach's attempt to show the importance of women's experiences and feminist theory for the justification of the democratic state is the most successful I have seen. Its achievement should be widely recognized and commented upon by feminist political philosophers and, hopefully, by political philosophers more generally, attracting as much attention as Susan Okin's Justice, Gender, and the Family.

(James P. Sterba, University of Notre Dame)
