Reviews

"By articulating terrorism, patriotism, and U.S. exceptionalism not only to race but also to homophobia, heteronormativity, and queerness, Terrorist Assemblages offers a trenchant critique of contemporary bio- as well as geopolitics. As an author on a hotly debated topic, Jasbir K. Puar is as gracious about acknowledging other authors' contributions as she is unyielding in her interrogations of secular-liberalist epistemic conventions. This is a smart, admirably researched, and courageous book."--Rey Chow, author of Sentimental Fabulations, Contemporary Chinese Films: Attachment in the Age of Global Visibility "I could not stop reading this outraged, meticulous, passionate, and brilliantly-visioned book. Jasbir K. Puar's analysis of the neoliberal, imperial, sexual, and racist present reaches into the U.S. Academy and multiple transnational publics and is critical of them all, even when she has solidarity with them. It's been a long time since I read something so smart and so thorough in its storytelling."--Lauren Berlant, author of The Queen of America Goes to Washington City: Essays on Sex and Citizenship "In this powerful book, Jasbir K. Puar offers a stunning critique of 'homonational' politics. She rethinks intersections as assemblages, as networks of affect, intensity, and movement. The very rigor of her critique suggests an unflinching optimism about what is possible for queer politics."--Sara Ahmed, author of Queer Phenomenology: Orientations, Objects, Others
