Summary: Homeland, country, region, locality, and globalisation: all words whose definitions in turn affect the definition of the word ''woman.'' The essays in Between Woman and Nation discuss women in diverse locales-ranging from Quebec to Beirut. The contributors-leading scholars of gender, ethnicity, trans-nationalism, and globalisation-are united in their determination to locate and describe the performative space of interactions between woman and nation, interactions which frequently con
found and resist essentialised notions of either. Divided into three parts, the collection first examines constructions of nationalism and communities whose practices complicate these constructions. The second section investigates regulations of particular nation-states and how they affect the lives of women, while the third presents studies of trans-national identity formation, in which contributors critique ideas such as ''multicultural nationalism'' and ''global feminism.'' In its demonstration of the critical possibilities of feminist alliances across discrepant and distinct material conditions, Between Woman and Nation will make a unique contribution to women's studies, feminist theory, studies of globalisation and trans-nationalism, ethnic studies, and cultural studies.

''The strength of the collection then lies precisely in its ability to engage empirically and theoretically with pressing contemporary issues within postcolonial feminist theory. Using contributions from various disparate geopolitical sites the collection integrates the theoretical aspects into a cutting edge overall framework while maintaining the importance of local empirical contributions. Any reader who is interested in rethinking the perception of centre and periphery in relation to the nation-state will find this collection useful and interesting.''--British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies ''It is clear from the essays in this collection that feminist cultural studies can make valuable contributions to understanding the gender politics of national and transnational economies of ideas, art, desires, and social movements. Kaplan, Alarcon, and Moallem have polished a series of articles that will no doubt inspire much strong future work.''--Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, issue 19/5, 2001
