This Bridge We Call Home: Radical Visions for Transformation
Gloria Anzald˙a, AnaLouise Keating
Psychology Press, 2002 - Social Science - 608 pages
Over twenty years after the ground-breaking anthology This Bridge Called My Back challenged feminists to envision new forms of communities and practices, Gloria E. Anzald˙a and AnaLouise Keating have brought together an ambitious new collection of over eighty original contributions offering a bold new vision of women-of-color consciousness for the twenty-first century. Through personal narratives, theoretical essays, textual collage, poetry, letters, artwork and fiction, this bridge we call home examines and extends the discussion of issues at the center of the first Bridge such as classism, homophobia, racism, identity politics, and community building, while exploring the additional issues of third wave feminism, Native sovereignty, lesbian pregnancy and mothering, transgendered issues, Arab-American stereotyping, Jewish identities, spiritual activism, and surviving academe. Written by women and men - both 'of color' and 'white,' located inside and outside the United States - and motivated by a desire for social justice, this bridge we call home invites feminists of all colors and genders to develop new forms of transcultural dialogues, practices, and alliances. Building on and pushing forward the revolutionary call for transformation announced over two decades ago, this bridge we call home, will challenge readers to rethink existing categories and invent new individual and collective identities.--Publisher's description.

My product arrived a lot earlier than i expected. The book was in a perfect condition and I saved so much at the same time. I am so glad that I bought my product from here than buying it from somewhere else. Read full review
As a man of color, this book is probably one of the most profound books available. Similar to bridge called my back, way ahead of its time!
