“Comprehensive and highly accessible, Intersectionality is set to become the go-to book for students, activists, policy makers, and teachers looking for an analytic tool to help identify and challenge social inequalities and achieve social justice.”
Nancy Naples, University of Connecticut
“Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge shed new light on intersectionality by showing how people across the globe use it as an analytical and organizing tool for protesting against social injustices and solving social problems. Their clear explanations and real-world examples covering a wide range of issues make intersectionality highly accessible and practicable to scholars, students, and activists alike. This book will be essential reading for understanding how power operates and is contested in our neoliberal age.”
Dorothy Roberts, University of Pennsylvania

I bought this book (kindle edition) last night but the book does not appear in my kindle. There is a record of purchase but the book did not get delivered to kindle. Please help.
Only thing I wished was that Collins would engage more with her idea of 'matrix of domination' - but maybe she simply let go of this after her 2000 revision of Black Feminist Thought.
If you have access, I also recommend other works by Collins and Bilge!
If you want a good introduction, or are eager to read some new theorisation re intersectionalit, I very much suggest this very accessible book!
Not something for general readers, I think, but squarely targeted at academics/students. As with so many Polity books, impeccable sources and a turn-to volume for anyone with a need to know more about this topic.
Intersectionality is an important concept, superbly illustrated in this excellent book.
I wanted to read this because I wanted the understand its relationship with identity politics and with activism and it has given me insights into both, as well as helping me see how it can be useful in examining a complex world where nuance is being lost and the politics of the 'other' is being exploited.
As a part of the LGBT community, a feminist and with many other labels stuck on me, I've followed the discussions on intersectionality with interest over the years, so it was not new territory for me, but I think this book is well worth a read to learn (or refresh) both some of the basic theory and more on the newer approaches as we learn from the past.
This is a handy introduction that will suit the general reader as well as the A level humanities student. As such, it is an overdue book for our time.
