MEDIA REVIEWS
""Discourses of Difference uncovers the many ways women travel writers have tried to deal with problems of credibility. They have played down the adventurous parts of their journeys or not reported events deemed "unfeminine." They have consciously created "women's texts," by writing in ways that allowed their books to be produced and read differently from men's travel writing. And the instability of the narrator's position--particularly in books of the colonial period, as Kingsley's example demonstrates--reflects the more general contradictions and complexity of white women's relation to power."
-"The Women's Review of Books
