Review:

"In "Muddying the Waters," Rich Nagar reflects on more than two decades of transnational feminist activism and scholarship, drawing on academic studies and activist collaborations in Tanzania, India, and the United States. . . . It poses questions about the responsibility academics have to those they co-produce knowledge with."--"Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography"
"

"Nagar s work is a call for politically engaged and ethical research that takes matters of epistemic violence seriously Muddying the Waters makes an important contribution to debates on the need for political meaningfulness in academic production by offering an illustrative example of how it can be achieved The book equips its readers with analytical tools to identify and begin to develop responsible and ethical research projects that cross geographical, socio-political and institutional borders."--"Journal of Narrative Politics"
"

"A significant contribution to scholarly conversations across the Global North-South, and White vs. feminists-of-color divides. A must-read for anyone who is interested in truly global feminist theorizing."
--Bandana Purkayastha, author of Negotiating Ethnicity
"Muddying the Waters is a searching memoir of one woman's struggle with struggle itself. It breaks from the typical academic genre: fractures the page, leaves fragments untranslated, invokes past and present coauthors, stages a play, asks impossible questions, and ends with a metaphor of impossible struggles-- a small bird fighting a fire, one beak-full of water per flight. The prose is self-critical, courageous, poetical, and open-hearted. The book cannot be read dispassionately by anyone who sees their own reflection in that bird's travail."--Gender, Place & Culture
