      This is a really thoughtful, thorough book Intersectionality is a concept that many like to evoke, but Bilge and Collins take the time to explore its origins, its uses, and its issues This book is dense, but still readable The authors always provide helpful relevant examples of social situations in which an intersectional perpsective can provide new insight or better action Still, sometimes the writing seems needlessly abstract Intersectionality is a fairly simple, elegant concept It refers to t [...]

      I met this book with excitement because I ve been a fan of Dr Collins for a long time and had the opportunity to see her speak on this recently I was not disappointed While things slowed down a bit in chapters 6 and 7, the conversation throughout the book was brilliant From the history behind intersectionality, to the cradle to prison pipeline, to praxis, to the value of anthologies this was a wealth of dynamic information and critical analysis Looking forward to seeing how I can take these less [...]

      Tis rare I review and rate a work related text probably because I dip in and out rather than consume whole but I flew through this extremely useful book on the past and present of intersectionality Far than a primer, the authors intervene in and expand on many debates and themes I actually wished it was longer.

    7. Yasmine Flodin-Ali says:
