Abstract

The three voices which speak in this review article are linked through a shared interest in ecofeminism. However, the three texts which are the subject of this review differ significantly in the degree to which they integrate ecofeminist perspectives. Thus the Corrin collection addresses the issue of male violence only in its sociopolitical context, while the Warren text is solely a work of ecofeminist scholarship. Nevertheless, there are connecting themes. One is the nexus of violence and oppression. These issues are decidedly ecofeminist issues, because, whatever the form of oppression--whether it is expressed through male violence, war, racism, class discrimination or nature domination--the logics of domination are similar.
