    A collection of central passages from Butler s eminent works on gender and sexuality Difficulty to read and digest, unless one has some familiarity with Hegel and and a grasp of Foucault A must read for those studying gender and sexuality from any perspective or paradigm.

  2. Alex Chace says:

    I found it to be a very good collection of many of Butler s preeminent works I also found the background and introduction this collected reader provides to be crucial to navigating through Butler s work especially if you haven t read the literature she draws from so heavily Wittig, Foucault, Hegel, and others.

    The stuff on gender is by far the best, but her writing style is belaboured, and the literary based essays I find too superficial I find myself asking so what Interesting ideas about bodies, though.
