Reviews

"With Scream from the Shadows we at last have feminist voices from Japan that are not tethered to the Euro-American liberal tenets of area studies. Bracingly candid and self-reflective, Scream from the Shadows speaks directly to the post-9-11 moment of liberal feminism's affinity with militarized and other modes of state violence. It dares us to make critical transnational feminist inquiries urgently relevant to all our ongoing transformative projects." -Lisa Yoneyama, Women and Gender Studies Institute, University of Toronto
