A rich set of feminist perspectives on the varied and often contradictory nature of state practices, structures, and ideologies  Growing socio-economic inequality and exclusion are defining features of the twenty-first century. While debates on globalization, free trade, and economic development have been linked to the paradigm of “neo-liberalism,” it does not explain all the forms of social change that have been unfolding in comparative contexts.  Feminists Rethink the Neoliberal State provides a timely intervention into discussions about the boundaries, practices, and nature of the post-liberalization state, suggesting that an understanding of economic policies, the corresponding rise of socio-economic inequality, and the possibilities for change requires an in-depth reconceptualization. Drawing on original field research both globally and within the United States, this volume brings together a rich set of perspectives on the varied and often contradictory nature of state practices, structures and ideologies in the post-liberalization era.  The essays develop an interdisciplinary approach that treats an understanding of historically-specific forms of inequality—such as gender, race, caste, sexuality and class—as integral to, rather than as after-effects of, the policies and ideologies associated with the “neoliberal project.”  The volume also tackles central questions on the restructuring of the state, the state’s power operations, the relationship between capital and the state, and its interactions with the institutions and organizational forms of civil society in the post-liberalization era. As such, Feminists Rethink the Neoliberal State examines both what is distinctive about this post-liberalization state and what must be contextualized as long-standing features of modern state power.   A truly international and interdisciplinary volume, Feminists Rethink the Neoliberal State deepens our understanding of how policies of economic liberalization shape and produce various forms of inequality.

    Real Submissives is a must read for any women considering exploring their submissive side. This book goes places that will surprise some and possibly shock others—as it is never anything less than candid. 
    	As a record of the experiences of lifestyle submissive females, it certainly isn’t some 50 Shades fantasy-fest! These women ‘walk the talk’; whether it be extreme role-play, slave training, pony girl, enforced servitude and prostitution, abduction and kidnapping. As this is the REAL THING, some of the experiences related can be extremely shocking and disturbing. It’s DEFINITELY not one for the faint hearted! 
    	For many interviewees, the need for domination had its roots, not surprisingly, in childhood. An authoritarian, even brutal, father started a trend which they sought to recreate in future relationships. In many fantasies, it will be noted, the division between controlled and controller becomes blurred. In other words, the so-called submissive is actually directing the scenario. By far the most popular and powerful scenario for most women was the idea of being used by two or more men. For all those who fantasise about it only those with a co-operative male partner willing to organise it ever do anything about it. 
    	A submissive is rarely passive, but invariably an active participant in the action, often directing the scenario ‘from below’ and letting the dominant man or woman know exactly what she wants. Many a master has learned to his cost the penalty of not providing the submissive woman with what she craves. She will up and leave. As one slave-girl put it: “A woman will follow where she wants to be led”. I sincerely hope you enjoy where this book leads you.
    	“Submissives are the sky divers of the sexual universe”
