'Other Kinds of Dreams' provides an invaluable insight into the political activity of black and Asian women in the UK both inside and outside the black and Asian communities. The book breaks new ground by: * destroying the misconception that black and Asian women lack political involvement * integrating gender into the study of black and Asian political participation in Britain
* exploring the potential for alliances between black women and the new progressive 'black man's movement'
* examining black women activists' perception and experiences of white feminism. 'Other Kinds of Dreams also questions the homogeneity of the term 'black' and asks whether increasing social stratification within black communities undermines this unity.

"As we trek into the next millennium, asserting, maintaining, and defending our humanity in the face of global capital, we very much need 'Other Kinds of Dreams'."
-Angela Y. Davis, UC-Santa Cruz, From the Foreword
Accounts of political activism in African-Caribbean and Asian communities often overlook the role of black women activists and therefore contribute towards an image of passivity, apathy and exclusion. Through an empirical study of black women's organisations, this book interrogates contemporary theories of racism and racialisation, political mobilisation and feminism relating to the experiences of black women to wider issues of politics and difference, class and coalitions. 'Other Kinds of Dreams' questions the homogeneity of the term 'black' and asks whether increasing social stratification within black communities undermines this unity. It also analyses the relationship between black women's organisations, black men and white feminists within the context of coalition building for social transformation. 'Other Kinds of Dreams' provides invaluable insights into the political activity of black women in spite of the immense barriers they face, both from within black communities and from society as a whole.This will prove essential reading to students of cultural studies, 'race' and ethnic studies, women's studies and all those with an interest in race relations and political activism.
