Editorial Reviews

“?With theoretical sophistication and analytical brilliance, this collection is essential reading that provides readers with critical tools to understand the relation between Canadian (and North American) racisms, neoliberalism, and the “War on Terror.” These eight essays incisively reveal the multiple, interconnected, and transnational projects of racism through a critical race feminism that is an exemplary practice of solidarity, coalition, and critique.?”

— Inderpal Grewal, Women?‘s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Yale University

States of Race will be useful for those already knowledgeable about the subject, as well as for novices. [It] is a valuable resource for anyone interested in critical race feminism and its application in a Canadian context.”

— Shameless magazine

“A refreshing and thoughtful collection that explores a range of realities faced by women and feminists of colour?. The editors and contributors have interwoven critical race and transnational feminism, post-structuralist feminist theory, and philosophy to offer incisive analyses on a range of current topics of interest to all critical thinkers across the globe. This volume — subtle, illuminating and accessible — should be required reading for students and faculty in critical race theory, women's studies, and political and feminist philosophy courses.”

— Falguni A. Sheth, Philosophy and Political Theory, Hampshire College, Amherst, Mass.
