List of Contributors
"This timely collection of essays addresses a critical shortcoming in both feminist scholarship and scholarship on race, namely, a failure to apply intersectionality theory comprehensively. The conception of this collection, as well as the integrity of its central theoretic concern, marks an important intervention. --Katherine Mellen Charron, author of Freedom's Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark" .
"All the chapters are thoroughly researched, well written, and carefully situated in relevant historiography. . . . If this is any indication of what the editors at the press have in mind for the future [of this new series], then readers and scholars of US history have a great deal to look forward to." Louise Newman, JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY
