Filed under: Texts

A collectively authored volume that provides a unique conceptual framework for understanding contemporary US society and history, and developing a dynamic vision and strategy for social change.

The authors combine and transcend various theories of history (marxism, anarchism, feminism, and nationalism) to develop an alternative conceptual framework, complementary holism. Applying this framework to questions of economics, politics, gender, race, and culture highlights the usefulness of complementary holism for understanding society and strategizing its transformation.

Liberating Theory provides concepts that promote “autonomy within solidarity.” It rejects the idea that any one oppression is primary while all others are secondary and it provides a vehicle for activists to share intellectual tools, visionary aims, and practical strategies so as to support and work with one another without compromising the integrity of their own desires.
