"The second edition of Intersectionality is a gift. Collins and Bilge have done it again, and somehow they've improved on the already stellar contributions of the first edition. At once incisive and accessible, this is a text for novice scholars looking for an entry point into intersectionality studies, as well as for more seasoned readers seeking a rich text with which to deepen engagement with this critical field. Intersectionality is a dynamic, interdisciplinary, and hotly contested terrain of scholar-activism, and Collins and Bilge are generous guides and teachers. Rather than merely tell, the second edition of Intersectionality expertly shows readers the key tenets of intersectional approaches and important applications of the concepts in a thoroughly global context. Perhaps most importantly, Collins and Bilge never let you forget that for all the hand-wringing over what intersectionality is, where it comes from, and what it can or cannot do, intersectionality is about social justice. This book is a remarkable contribution from two of the most vitally important and generous leaders of the field." Patrick R. Grzanka, editor of Intersectionality: Foundations and Frontiers, 2nd edition "Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge provide a rich and nuanced framework for understanding the meanings of intersectionality and why it is so powerful for addressing issues of social justice in these times." Barbara Smith, Co-founder Combahee River Collective "An illuminating and accessible entry into intersectionality, which acknowledges creative tensions between academic inquiry and political praxis. The authors' careful and rigorous work symbolizes the best of what intersectionality has to offer a world that is desperate for new solutions and battle-scarred by quick fixes." Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro, University of Southern California "a timely release and much needed follow -up" Atlantis: Critical Studies in Gender, Culture and Social Justice
