While acknowledging Hannah Arendt's keen philosophical and political insights, Kathryn T. Gines claims that there are some problematic assertions and oversights regarding Arendt’s treatment of the "Negro question." Gines focuses on Arendt's reaction to the desegregation of Little Rock schools, to laws making mixed marriages illegal, and to the growing civil rights movement in the south. Reading them alongside Arendt's writings on revolution, the human condition, violence, and responses to the Eichmann war crimes trial, Gines provides a systematic analysis of anti-black racism in Arendt’s work.

"In this pathbreaking collection of articles, Dr. Beverly Guy-Sheftall has taken us from the early 1830s to contemporary times. Only since the seventies have black women used the term "feminism." And yet, it is that concept that she uses to bring into the same frame the ideas and analyses of Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Frances W.E. Harper of the early nineteenth century, and the work of women such as the late Audre Lorde, Barbara Smith, and bell hooks who stand on the threshold of the twenty-first century... She has refused to cut off contemporary African American women from the long line of sisters who have righteously struggled for the liberation of African American women from the dual oppressions of racism and sexism." —From the epilogue by Johnnetta B. Cole, President, Spelman College "The indefatigable Beverly Guy-Sheftall has put together a breathtaking sweep of African American feminist thought in one indispensable volume." —Elizabeth Spelman, Professor of Philosophy, Smith College

This book is the only available compilation of women in education and psychology whose work has been marginalized, forgotten, or attributed to their male colleagues. This resource includes women from the progressive era (1900-1950), the psychological period (1950-2000), and the political period (2000-2010). Caucasian and African American scholars from the Northeast, Southern, and Midwestern states are highlighted. Some of the chapters are shorter than others due to the limited literature concerning some of the women. In addition, chapters describing the elimination of gender inequity in early childhood education, the marginalization of women in education under No Child Left Behind as well as discrimination of women in higher education are included. The book concludes with the need to rethink teacher education to include the exceptional contributions of the women who are showcased in this book. Finally, this source is an attempt to eliminate gender inequity in teacher education and educational psychology by restoring the contributions of feminine scholars.

First-wave feminism arrived on the international scene in the nineteenth century, a time when women had very few rights as citizens and were largely controlled by a government with laws that protected and served men. Today, through the work of feminist movements, women have gained the right to vote and work, but the quest for social and economic equality remains. This text gives students insight into the fascinating history of the feminist movement and its leaders while presenting thoughtful analysis of feminist issues to help students think critically about the history and present need for feminism and women’s rights today.

In spite of the double burden of racial and gender discrimination, African-American women have developed a rich intellectual tradition that is not widely known. In Black Feminist Thought, Patricia Hill Collins explores the words and ideas of Black feminist intellectuals as well as those African-American women outside academe. She provides an interpretive framework for the work of such prominent Black feminist thinkers as Angela Davis, bell hooks, Alice Walker, and Audre Lorde. The result is a superbly crafted book that provides the first synthetic overview of Black feminist thought.
