Reading feminist theory as a complex imaginative achievement, Feminist Imagination considers feminist commitment through the interrogation of its philosophical, political and affective connections with the past, and especially with the race trialsMoreReading feminist theory as a complex imaginative achievement, Feminist Imagination considers feminist commitment through the interrogation of its philosophical, political and affective connections with the past, and especially with the race trials of the twentieth century.

The book looks at: the directionlessness of contemporary feminist thought- the question of essentialism and embodiment- the racial tensions in the work of Simone de Beauvoir- the totalitarian character in Hannah Arendt- the mimetic Jew and the concept of mimesis in the work of Judith Butler. Vikki Bell provides a compelling rethinking of feminist theory as bound up with attempts to understand oppression outside a focus on women.

She affirms feminism as a site and mode of making these connections.
