The Roots of Power
Animate Form and Gendered Bodies
feminist theorists acknowledge the importance of the body, but
few theorists have attempted to discuss the natural body that is
the place of cultural inscriptions. What The Roots of Power
makes clear is that we must carefully examine the evolutionary
body in order to understand its cultural transformations."

Roots of Power is a brilliantly conceived book. Its densely
lucid and unfailingly telling text, which is as remarkable for
its informative detail as for its philosophical sagacity,
effectively trims the culturalist sails of leading postmodern
thinkers--among them Derrida, Lacan, Harraway, Foucault."
