About this book

A new generation of political science scholars who are comfortable employing intersectional analysis are emerging and their work hones in directly on the complexity of politics, governance and policy making in an increasingly small, technologically connected, ideologically nuanced, global Public Square.

Reviews

"This wide-ranging and cutting-edge collection links theoretical and 'real world' concerns to provide an exciting contribution to the analysis of power and policy that illuminates the complexities involved. Both accessible and sophisticated, it is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand and challenge current patterns of privilege and marginalisation." Valerie Bryson, Professor Emerita, University of Huddersfield, UK

'The authors in this exciting collection deftly address an impressive array of issues including advocacy groups and NGOs, gender identity and identification cards, disaster relief, and HIV testing across a range of geographic settings and political contexts. In so doing, their research highlights the importance of bringing an intersectional lens to long-standing questions about political institutions, political identities, and public policy.' Dara Z. Strolovitch, Associate Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies and Affiliated Faculty, Department of Politics, Princeton University, USA and the author of Affirmative Advocacy: Race, Class, and Gender in Interest Group Politics
