BOOK REVIEWS Christiansen-Ruffman, Linda (ed.), The Global Feminist Enlightenment: Women and Social Knowledge. Madrid, Spain: International Sociological Association, 1998. 131 pages. The history of this edited collection tells an important story about the cur- rent status of "women and social knowledge." Editor Linda Christiansen- Ruffman, an active member of the International Sociological Association's (ISA) Research Committee on Women in Society, explains that 7he Global Feminist Enlightenment is one in a series of books published by the ISA aimed to publicize the association, invite new members, and foster intellectual dialogue. The project was initiated by Immanuel Wallerstein, the ISA pres- ident from 1994 to 1998, and involved selecting prominent scholars organized into ten world regions who would convene regional working conferences.
