Summary

Summary

This book offers an integrated overview of the themes and discourses of feminism and multiculturalism which inform the 'politics of difference'; an area of burgeoning interest in contemporary political theory. Andrea Baumeister introduces the challenge posed by the proponents of diversity to liberalist theorists such as Rawls, Raz and Kymlicka, and outlines their responses to this challenge.While other texts cover either feminism or multiculturalism within 'Identity Politics', no other book brings these strands of thought together, recognising their common themes.
