Summary
"In an important contribution to postcolonial, gender, and Eurasian ethnic studies, Tlostanova examines Central Asia and the Caucasus to trace the genealogy of feminism in those regions following the dissolution of the USSR. The forms it takes, she finds, resist interpretation through the lenses of both Western feminist theory and woman of color feminism--hence, Tlostanova argues, Eurasian borderland feminism must chart a third path sensitive to the region's own unique past"--
