    Full text not available from this repository.


    Book synopsis: This book looks at how misogyny and western political thought were intertwined in their origins and how this relationship has worked itself out through the classic texts of traditional and modern political theory. In this revised edition, the analysis of these texts is accompanied by a new introduction and conclusion which bring the debates on this topic up to date. The concluding chapter examines contemporary feminist theory by discussing pooststructuralist and postmodernist themes, which allows for a reappraisal of the critical perspectives brought to bear in the earlier chapters and for a discussion of recent feminist developments in terms of textual analysis and critiques of foundational categories and concepts.
