This groundbreaking book presents conceptual, theoretical and applied research on women''s life histories. The authors fulfill two needs: they provide a collection of essays that grapple with controversial issues in the study of life history, and they present many narratives from women of color, the majority collected and interpreted by women of color. The individual chapters offer a variety of voices linked by a philosophical and political orientation that places women of color at the center of scholarly inquiry rather than at the periphery. Ultimately, readers find in this text innovative ways of reconceptualizing the complexities of women''s lives.
From the Publisher:

Unrelated Kin is a startling collection of narratives by and about women of color. Presenting survivalist, testimonial and collaborative voices from Native American, African American, Asian American and Latina women, the volume boldly explores the subtle and often shocking realities of non-western and non-white women's lives.

The conceptual, theoretical and applied research on women's life histories is central to all the narratives in Unrelated Kin: how are the life experiences of women of color different from those of other women? Can a single research methodology account for the diverse life experiences of all women, of all people? Can outsiders (e.g. white/male) elicit and interpret a woman's life without bias?

Linked by a philosophical and political belief that acknowledges the authority of women to write and to speak their own lives, Unrelated Kin offers intimate views of race and gender within the women's respective cultures|and communities, reveals candid details about the struggles and triumphs of "marked" lives, and provides innovative ways of reconceptualizing research on women's life histories.
