Blea provides a synthesis of the women's history of Native Americans, Asians, African Americans, and Latinas, and she examines the similarities and differences among these women. From each she extracts suggestions on ways to promote racial and ethnic tolerance. After examining the backgrounds and experiences of female radicals, Blea looks at indigenous or Native American women and the impact of European colonization and domination. Subsequent chapters examine African American women, Asian and Pacific Island women, and ways the experiences of these groups can help devise an approach to healing from intolerance. Of particular interest to students and other researchers involved with women and ethnic studies, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and social welfare issues.
