Praise

Reveals a powerful, radical voice. . . . Matsuda is committed to uncovering . . . the hidden injustices and histories that underlie American democracy and its legal system. -Gayatri Gopinath, A. magazine

“Eloquently and lucidly . . . [Matsuda] moves from exposing the very personal level of what identity politics means for Asian-Americans to offering a blueprint for women and minorities in the legal academy working for social justice. From [her] we once again get nothing less than expected: a body that soars, a voice that roars.” -Madhavi Sunder, Ms.

“What makes this work so exciting and so indispensable to both scholars and activists is Matsuda’s ability to theorize social movements and to draw practical, transformative implications from legal and feminist theory. Her explorations of such urgent issues as affirmative action, hate speech, domestic violence, and anti-crime rhetoric offer new and compelling strategies with which to resist the cascading conservatism of this era.” Angela Y. Davis, author, activist, scholar

“Matsuda’s consciousness-raising . . . is a useful exercise for all.” –Publishers Weekly
