Relating the articles published in this issue to the content of the original call, this piece will turn to the gender politics orientation of the various pieces included. I will locate each of the contributions in a discussion dealing with the kind of orientation which makes up the main section of this article. That discussion will point to the enduring appeal of different feminist approaches, although, as I shall explain, not all contributions are easily appropriated to that outlook. Following on from this, I will discuss the possible significance of one pattern which is detectible in the articles, namely the fact that the conception of patriarchy is unchallenged by the articles collected here. Before approaching those tasks, however, I will provide brief summaries of the articles, grouping them in line with three sets: i) pieces which place emphasis on women, ii) articles equally focused on men and women, iii) contributions more focused on men (though they also illustrate the inseparability of the andro- and gynocentric perspectives).
