It links an account of the main issues within feminist political theory to studies of womens actual participation within politics. The first three chapters introduce the reader to debates surrounding the concepts of politics, gender and theory, respectively. Together, these chapters provide a clear thematic framework from which more specific arguments in feminist political theory can be understood. The author uses the distinction between the themes of inclusion, reversal and displacement to examine work in gender in political theory. Four central debates are considered in turn: equality, justice, citizenship and representation. Gender in Political Theory is a crucial introductory text for those wanting to gain an overview of the treatment of gender in the field of politics. It will be invaluable to academics and students of politics, as well as those in other related disciplines which have been influenced by gender theory who want to know how gender impacts on the study of politics.
