About this title

Synopsis:

Taking a view of inequality as encompassing the distribution of wealth, risk, status, and well-being, this work explores how institutions, individuals, and coalitions contribute to the often surprising twists and turns of distributive politics. It identifies a variety of psychological and institutional factors that influence distributive outcomes.

Review:

"Imagination has not been contemporary social theory's strongest suit. Michele Barrett is one of the few theorists who has consistently argued for its importance, and in these elegantly written, lucidly formulated, vigorously argued essays, she develops and enlarges her exploration of this complex terrain of inquiry." -Stuart Hall,

"Michele Barrett engages timely issues in great range and depth: humanism, anti-humanism, and ecological responsibility; the disciplinary constitution of objects of study and the writerliness of theory; the relationship of politics and aspiration. She supplements Marxism, interacts with post-structuralism, situates postmodernism in postmodernity, and remains firmly focused on historical change within feminism. She brings us all the way into popular culture, and ends with a virtuoso encounter between Virginia Woolf and Michel Foucault." -Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak,

"In this astute and lively book, Michele Barrett takes the reader on a memorable and informed trip through the highs and lows of twentieth-century culture and its analysis. Imagination in Theory explores the dynamism of the century-long association of literature and theory, and provides one of the best arguments for the productive energy of that alliance." -Cora Kaplan,
