    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    What does the development of a truly robust contemporary theory of domination require? Ashley J. Bohrer argues that it is only by considering all of the dimensions of race, gender, sexuality, and ability within the structures of capitalism and imperialism that we can understand power relations as we find them nowadays. Bohrer explains how many of the purported incompatibilities between Marxism and intersectionality arise more from miscommunication rather than a fundamental conceptual antagonism. As the first monograph entirely devoted to this issue, "Marxism and Intersectionality" serves as a tool to activists and academics working against multiple systems of domination, exploitation, and oppression.

    Reviews

    "In a world of multiple and in some cases worsening oppressions, the challenge of understanding-and strategizing how best to overcome-social domination and social injustice has become more acute than ever. Ashley Bohrer's striking intervention in current debates, informed not merely by an impressive familiarity with multiple literatures but her deep engagement with activist communities, makes a boldly contrarian case for the reconciliation of Marxism and intersectionality theory. Whatever side you are on in this debate, this is a book very much worth reading." (Charles Mills, John Evans Professor of Moral and Intellectual Philosophy, CUNY)
