Undivided Rights captures the evolving and largely unknown activist history of women of color organizing for reproductive justice—on their own behalf. Undivided Rights presents a textured understanding of the reproductive rights movement by placing the experiences, priorities, and activism of women of color in the foreground. Using historical research, original organizational case studies, and personal interviews, the authors illuminate how women of color have led the fight to control their own bodies and reproductive destinies. Undivided Rights shows how women of color—-starting within their own Latina, African American, Native American, and Asian American communities—have resisted coercion of their reproductive abilities. Projected against the backdrop of the mainstream pro-choice movement and radical right agendas, these dynamic case studies feature the groundbreaking work being done by health and reproductive rights organizations led by women-of-color. The book details how and why these women have defined and implemented expansive reproductive health agendas that reject legalistic remedies and seek instead to address the wider needs of their communities. It stresses the urgency for innovative strategies that push beyond the traditional base and goals of the mainstream pro-choice movement—strategies that are broadly inclusive while being specific, strategies that speak to all women by speaking to each woman. While the authors raise tough questions about inclusion, identity politics, and the future of women’s organizing, they also offer a way out of the limiting focus on "choice." Undivided Rights articulates a holistic vision for reproductive freedom. It refuses to allow our human rights to be divvied up and parceled out into isolated boxes that people are then forced to pick and choose among.

This anthology assembles two decades’ of work initiated by SisterSong Women of Color Health Collective, who created the human rights-based “reproductive justice” to move beyond polarized pro-choice/pro-life debates. Rooted in Black feminism and built on intersecting identities, this revolutionary framework asserts a woman's right to have children, not have children, and to parent and provide for the children they have.

Niemand weiß, dass sie noch lebt. Nicht mal ihre Kinder. Doch die sind nun in höchster Gefahr. Sie raucht, sie flucht, sie trinkt. Und lässt sich von niemandem was sagen. Jeder in der Stadt schätzt – oder fürchtet – Freedom Oliver. Keiner kennt ihren wahren Namen, ihr altes Leben: ausgelöscht. Das Leben, in dem sie ihren Mann erschoss, den Schwager ans Messer lieferte und ihre Kinder verlor. Das Leben, das sie für das Zeugenschutzprogramm hinter sich ließ. Nur spät in der Nacht verfolgt Freedom per Facebook, wie Mason und Rebekah erwachsen werden. Und dann kommt der Tag. Der Tag, an dem ihre Feinde Rache schwören. An dem Rebekah verschwindet. Und Freedom weiß: Sie kann sich nicht länger verstecken, sie muss handeln ... Eine Heldin wie keine andere. Eine Geschichte von Liebe, Rache, Schuld und Tod.

Despite recent advances in the study of black thought, black women intellectuals remain often neglected. This collection of essays by fifteen scholars of history and literature establishes black women's places in intellectual history by engaging the work of writers, educators, activists, religious leaders, and social reformers in the United States, Africa, and the Caribbean. Dedicated to recovering the contributions of thinkers marginalized by both their race and their gender, these essays uncover the work of unconventional intellectuals, both formally educated and self-taught, and explore the broad community of ideas in which their work participated. The end result is a field-defining and innovative volume that addresses topics ranging from religion and slavery to the politicized and gendered reappraisal of the black female body in contemporary culture. Contributors are Mia E. Bay, Judith Byfield, Alexandra Cornelius, Thadious Davis, Corinne T. Field, Arlette Frund, Kaiama L. Glover, Farah J. Griffin, Martha S. Jones, Natasha Lightfoot, Sherie Randolph, Barbara D. Savage, Jon Sensbach, Maboula Soumahoro, and Cheryl Wall.

In Seizing the Means of Reproduction, Michelle Murphy's initial focus on the alternative health practices developed by radical feminists in the United States during the 1970s and 1980s opens into a sophisticated analysis of the transnational entanglements of American empire, population control, neoliberalism, and late-twentieth-century feminisms. Murphy concentrates on the technoscientific means—the technologies, practices, protocols, and processes—developed by feminist health activists. She argues that by politicizing the technical details of reproductive health, alternative feminist practices aimed at empowering women were also integral to late-twentieth-century biopolitics. Murphy traces the transnational circulation of cheap, do-it-yourself health interventions, highlighting the uneasy links between economic logics, new forms of racialized governance, U.S. imperialism, family planning, and the rise of NGOs. In the twenty-first century, feminist health projects have followed complex and discomforting itineraries. The practices and ideologies of alternative health projects have found their way into World Bank guidelines, state policies, and commodified research. While the particular moment of U.S. feminism in the shadow of Cold War and postcolonialism has passed, its dynamics continue to inform the ways that health is governed and politicized today.

Noam Chomsky ist der einflussreichste Intellektuelle der Vereinigten Staaten und in seinem neuen Buch befasst er sich erstmals umfassend mit dem großen Thema unserer Zeit: der sozialen Ungleichheit. Anhand von zehn Prinzipien zur Konzentration von Reichtum und Macht und mithilfe zahlreicher historischer Texte der amerikanischen Geschichte erklärt Noam Chomsky, wie der amerikanische Traum – dass jeder es mit harter Arbeit zu etwas bringen kann – in den letzten Jahrzehnten beerdigt und ein System nie da gewesener sozialer Ungleichheit errichtet wurde, von dem letztlich nur einige wenige profitieren. Requiem für den amerikanischen Traum macht die Breite und Tiefe von Noam Chomskys Denken zugänglich wie kein anderes seiner Bücher und verdeutlicht seine politischen Ideen mit einer beispiellosen Direktheit. Die Pflichtlektüre für alle, die noch Hoffnung auf eine gemeinsame, demokratische Gestaltung unserer Zukunft haben.
