Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: Carole Pateman is one of the leading political theorists writing today. This wide-ranging volume brings together for the first time a selection of her work on democratic theory and feminist criticism of mainstream political theory

This volume includes substantial discussions of problems of democracy, citizenship and the welfare state, including the largely unrecognized difficulties surrounding womens participation. The inclusion of essays from both a mainstream and feminist perspective provides concrete examples of the differences between these two approaches to democracy, questions of consent and political obligation, and the relationship between the private and public spheres.

This scholarly and highly challenging work will be of interest to students and researchers in political theory, political science, womens studies and sociology.
