'Vicki Kirby's presentation of Butler is, like Butler's own critical reading, thoughtful and rigorous, generous yet insubordinate. The level of scholarship here is superior: our author glides skillfully from Hegel to Lacan, Freud to Derrida, Althusser to Foucault, in order to capture the sense and flow of Butler's own arguments. In a slim volume, she succeeds in treating a wealth of complex material ... Kirby cuts quickly to the crux of Butler's most interesting arguments and then unpacks them with care'. Karen Kachra, Toronto, Canada.--Sanford Lakoff "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews " "A useful work for anyone interested in the impact of feminist thought in the broad domain of cultural theory today. We could hardly find a more generous and thorough introduction to the complexities and impact of Butler's thoughts ... the most exciting chapter of Kirby's admirable guide through Butler's work is her concluding interview with this living theorist herself ... This book provides an excellent resource for those wishing to stay in touch with this pioneering thinker"L. Segal, Culture, Health and Sexuality, January 2008--Sanford Lakoff "Vicki Kirby's intimate exegesis of Judith Butler's oeuvre is an appropriate place to illustrate the disquiet with cultural analyses outlined by emerging material feminism."-Myra J. Hird, Feminist Studies, Vol. 35, Summer 2009
