CHOICE Review

Keating (women's studies, Texas Women's Univ.) offers a thoughtful and provocative theoretical framework for moving through and beyond binary thinking and identity politics. She argues for a politics of commonality in difference, "defined not as sameness but as points of complex connections." Keating asserts that this is possible if the conversations about change and transformation begin from the theories of women of color. Her work is grounded deeply in Gloria Anzaldua's groundbreaking use of the Nahuatl idea of nepantla, that in-between space of chaos and uncertainty. In an amplification of her earlier work on and with Anzaldua, and This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, ed. by Cherriie Moraga and Anzaldua (CH, Oct'81), Keating brings into dialogue writers and thinkers from radically different strains of philosophical thinking. Perhaps most compelling is Keating's effort to revise contemporary feminist identity politics frameworks into what she calls "transformational identity politics." This book provides a much-needed reframing of feminist theories, and the final chapter (and the sample syllabus) will be a useful tool for transforming feminist pedagogy. Those interested in social justice work will benefit from Keating's post-oppositional framework for bringing about social change. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty/professionals; general readers. R. M. Bredin California State University--Fullerton
