Reviews

"Like a breath of air from some enlightened future, this book will invigorate and inspire all readers looking for a fresh alternative to the smugly inward theoreticism of so much contemporary feminism and queer theory, advancing by leaps and bounds a conversation that has struggled to emerge for far too long."--James Penney, Trent University
"Lewis asks incisive questions about the relationship between the universal and the particular, between sex and gender, and sameness and difference. In so doing it rejects both an economistic reading of macro processes and an individuated reading of relations at the micro level. Ultimately it is a provocative book: for it provokes both thought and action."--Tithi Bhattacharya, Purdue University
"At a time when Marxist politics is struggling more than ever against the current, queer Marxist scholarship is enjoying a slight, startling, heartening resurgence. Lewis's The Politics of Everybody is a major contribution to the trend."--Tithi Bhattacharya, Purdue University "Europe Solidare Sans Frontiรจres"
"[A] thought provoking and original text."--Tithi Bhattacharya, Purdue University "Critical Social Policy"
