SUMMARY

View the Table of Contents. Read the Introduction.This excellent primer traces the development of feminist theories in a legal system to which women and feminists are relatively new. The authors traverse various feminist legal theories, describing their inherent differences, as well as their crucial common ground; their influence on the legal world; their successes both perceived and real; and finally, their dynamic nature, which prime activists and academics for social and political change...The book also raises issues of goals unfulfilled and challenges to come by providing an insightfully provoking discussion of diverse issues. It explores more traditionally feminist legal topics such as domestic violence and rape, current debates, such as single-sex schools and women in the US military, and larger issues regarding the applicability of feminist legal theories in the face of a shrinking, globalized world. --"Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law, and Justice"This excellent primer traces the development of feminist theories in a legal system to which women and feminists are relatively new.

The book also raises issues of goals unfulfilled and challenges to come by providing an insightfully provoking discussion of diverse issues. It explores more traditionally feminist legal topics such as domestic violence and rape, current debates, such as single-sex schools andwomen in the U.S. military, and larger issues regarding the applicability of feminist legal theories in the face of a shrinking, globalized world. --"Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law, and Justice"This book is perfectly designed as a text for undergraduates. The writing is lively and accessible; the topic coverage is broad, interesting, and up-to-date; and the subject of feminist legal theory is represented in many forms. Levit and Verchick invite readers to engage in the debate over laws impact on gendered controversies, and to select solutions from among competing visions of equality. --"Choice" (highly recommended)Feminist Legal Theory brings together a comprehensive and lucid treatment of feminist theoretical approaches to the most pressing legal problems of our time. This book will serve as an essential desk reference for those who are new to feminist legal theory as well as for those of us who are veterans. --Katherine Franke, Columbia Law School"An important new assessment, wisely crafted, controversial, provocative, unusual, not just another addition to a settled field." --Susan Estrich, author of "Sex & Power ""A must-read for those who are interested in how feminist legal thinking has influenced and continues to have an impact on the development of legal rules. I recommend it to all those who are interested in the complex problems that confront women throughout the world in the twenty-first century." --Theresa Beiner, professor of law, University of Arkansas at Little Rock"Using the multi-faceted lens of feminism, Levit and Verchick circumnavigate contemporary legal theory with an amazing confidence, acute insights, and impressive energy. Anyoneinterested in ways that the law impacts the lives of women (and men) will find this book essential reading." --Keith Aoki, Philip H. Knight Professor of Law, University of Oregon School of Law[C]learly-worded and effective in the presentation of occasionally confusing or conflicting issues and perspectives. --"Women, Girls & Criminal Justice"At long last, the complex field of feminist legal theory is presented in accessible, teachable form by two of its experts, Nancy Levit and Robert R. M. Verchick. In this outstanding primer, the authors introduce the diveRobert Verchick is the author of 'Feminist Legal Theory: A Primer (Critical America (New York University Hardcover))', published 2006 under ISBN 9780814751985 and ISBN 0814751989.
