I am teaching a junior honors course in the fall which is examining new theoretical perspectives on race, gender and class and then reading some works in US Women's History which show hoe historians have sought to integrate theory and the practice of history(to make a bald distinction).
I would be very grateful if anyone could suggest good books in African-Women's History and also in Western History which look at the relationship between race and gender identities.
