Daly calls this volume a “public syllabus,” a fitting description for the twenty-two articles collected here. Without claiming to be exhaustive, the book articulates a range of feminisms (as well as womanist and mujerista perspectives) and a range of ethics that provides an excellent introduction to the discipline of social ethics. Because both editor and authors name themselves with care, their work is instructive for ethics that would attend to social location, embodiment, and practice—a refreshing corrective to “masculinist” ethicists who have not named themselves and assumed a universal perspective. The collection is divided into methodological, critical, and “practical” sections. That an especially moving and personal exchange between Katie Cannon and Carter Heyward is included in the “methodological” section highlights the extent to which “theoretical” and “practical” concerns interpenetrate, as do the “methodological” insights in applications such as those by Beverly Harrison and Karen Lebacqz. This is an invaluable resource for anyone concerned with ethical reflection and action, an exceptionally successful public “syllabus” that is equally appropriate inside and outside the classroom.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 066425327X, Paperback)

This volume considers the task of changing society's assumptions about women, analyses ways to challenge our culture's tradition, and explores ways in which we can live together in the modern world. A variety of issues, from reproduction to war, are discussed from an array of perspectives, including womanist and ecofeminist. The book is ideal for feminist theology and feminist ethics classes, and is sure to become an instant classic.

The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors though reflection on classic works in the field.
