Reviews
"In its critique of Western rationality, Enlightenment categories, and hierarchical orderings, this book makes a significant contribution. Chancy uses race and gender theory in smart and provocative ways. Her elucidation of difficult texts and contexts is clear and convincing. The research is well presented, the arguments well developed, and the conclusions intellectually satisfying."--Françoise Lionnet, author of Writing Women and Critical Dialogues: Subjectivity, Gender, and Irony
