One of the most talked-about scholarly works of the past fifty years, Judith Butler's Gender Trouble is as celebrated as it is controversial.

Arguing that traditional feminism is wrong to look to a natural, 'essential' notion of the female, or indeed of sex or gender, Butler starts by questioning the category 'woman' and continues in this vein with examinations of 'the masculine' and 'the feminine'. Best known however, but also most often misinterpreted, is Butler's concept of gender as a reiterated social performance rather than the expression of a prior reality.

Thrilling and provocative, few other academic works have roused passions to the same extent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Indispensable for feminist theory.' - Hypatia

'At times brilliant, always groundbreaking, Gender Trouble is bound to make some trouble of its own.' - Outweek

'The most authoritative attack to date on the "naturalness" of gender. This is a brilliant and innovative book.' - Sandra Lee Bartky


'Rereading this book, as well as reading it for the first time, reshapes the categories through which we experience and perform our lives and bodies. To be troubled in this way is an intellectual pleasure and a political necessity.' - Donna Haraway
