Vexy Thing: On Gender and Liberation
By exploring the past and present of patriarchy in the world we have inherited and are building for the future, Imani Perry exposes its mechanisms of domination as a necessary precursor to dismantling it.
Drawing on a rich array of sources - from nineteenth-century slavery court casesand historical vignettes to writings by Toni Morrison and Audre Lorde - Perry shows how the figure of the patriarch emerged as part and parcel of modernity, the nation-state, the Industrial Revolution, and globalization.
