The Roots of Power
Animate Form and Gendered Bodies

Maxine Sheets-Johnstone


"Many 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."
--Nancy Tuana
 University of Oregon

"The 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."
