MEDIA REVIEWS

"In some ways I like to compare this book to Alasdair MacIntyre's wonderful A Short History of Ethics. The reason is that it so challenges conventionalities about what constitutes political theory. Therefore, Elshtain's beginning with Luther is a wonderful way to show how so much of political liberalism embodied in Kant presumed a Lutheran distinction between the two kingdoms in a manner that we have suffered from ever since. . . . The book is written eloquently and with great grace that makes it accessible to a wide range of readers about issues that matter."

--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University


"This would be a refreshing text for any course on modern political thought or feministic political theory. It raises, as perhaps few other texts at this level of accessibility do, the whole range of issues surrounding the construction of the self which underlie gender studies and contemporary political thought."

--Shane Phelan, Women and Politics


"It covers a number of masculine-feminine themes in the history of political and social thought in an easy-to-read style, and so is accessible to undergraduates. The section on Freud is very good. It also illustrates the themes that are characteristic of Elshtain's longer and more difficult books. It is thus a good introduction to feminist readings of the canon without throwing the reader off with jargon and density of prose."

--James Tully, McGill University


"Elshtain offers a very distinctive and important approach to feminism in political thought--an approach which deserves to be pondered in the years to come."

--Fred Dallmayr, University of Notre Dame
