MEDIA REVIEWS

"The writers collected in Further Adventures of The Dialectic of Sex retrieve the incendiary vision of Shulamith Firestone from the ash heap of early second wave feminism.They provide us with guidepoststo Firestone's prescient text, laden with insights and arguments about issues that roil public debate today:reproductive technology, transformations of the sexed body, and the regulation of marriage and the family.This collection will put Firestone back on the bookshelves and course syllabi, to engage and provoke the next generation of feminist rabble rousers." - Lisa Duggan, author of Sex Wars: Sexual Dissent and Political Culture

"Further Adventures of The Dialectic of Sex is essential reading in feminist and queer studies.This exciting anthology takes one of radical feminism s most powerful documents and mines it s most progressive and problematic dimensions. Shulamith Firestone s often forgotten, but hugely influential text, is placed in dialogue with contemporary writing in technology studies, debates about gender segregation and sports, and the anti-family. This interdisciplinary collection couldn t be more useful and timely thanks to its attention to the creative and political contexts of its authorship and the authors' engagement with the challenging directions of the most rigorous work in contemporary queer studies." - Jennifer Doyle, Associate Professor, University of California, Riverside and author of Sex Objects: Art and the Dialectics of Desire
