October 8, 2009 | 212 pages

In this exciting and insightful new work, Zillah Eisenstein weighs up the new anti-imperial possibilities created by the 2008 election of Barack Obama. Eisenstein likens the end of the Bush/Cheney presidency to the fall of Stalin, or Pinochet, and asks whether this is a key historical moment that will alter race and gender in newly unknown ways. Tracing the social and political presence of Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, The Audacity of Race and Gender presents 25 conceptual "frames" of fast-paced critical analysis. Illuminated by her distinctive style and personal narrative, Eisenstein challenges her readers to always be looking for the "newly new" political configurations in order to create a politics of and for the globe.
