Solidarity Politics for Millennials: A Guide to Ending the Oppression Olympics (The Politics of Intersectionality) Solidarity Politics for Millennials: A Guide to Ending the Oppression Olympics (The Politics of Intersectionality)

by Ange-Marie Hancock

Book Reviews

"Solidarity Politics for Millennials is, quite simply, a tour de force. Offering an analysis that is both sophisticated and accessible, Hancock stresses that the complexities of twenty-first century racial, gender, and class politics require a new approach rooted in intersectional thinking and deep solidarity. Blending political science, psychology, and a sharp grasp of pop culture, Hancock manages to (meaningfully!) compare the musings of Morpheus from The Matrix and Helo from Battlestar Galactica with the writings of W.E.B. DuBois, Hannah Arendt, Gloria Anzaldua, and Amartya Sen. Playfully written, the book is at once a delightful read and a detailed manual to bridge the gap -- between social groups, between generations, and between academics and activists. Covering a wide range of theory even as it tackles topical issues of marriage equality, immigrant rights, and electoral politics, this book is destined to be both a staple on professors' bookshelves and a winner in the classroom."
-- Manuel Pastor, professor, American Studies & Ethnicity, director, Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, and director, Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration, University of Southern California

"In Solidarity Politics for Millennials, Ange-Marie Hancock skillfully translates theories of intersectionality into an accessible 'how-to' guide for cultivating deep solidarity and resisting the 'Oppression Olympics.' Using timely examples from contemporary politics and popular culture, the book deftly illustrates the value of an intersectional approach to politics and public policy while providing hands-on activities and guidelines to students, scholars, and activists who want to take 'intersectional action.'"
