MEDIA REVIEWS

"With the blended ink of scholarly brilliance, activist wisdom, and biting humor, the writers in this volume accomplish a remarkable doubled analytic: they carry their critical lens under the covers of the moral panics of sexuality, targeting the erectile dysfunction of the Right wing and the conservative agenda more broadly, daring to theorize strategic diversionary motives and trace the multiple ideological tremors the morning after. At the same time, however, they refuse to neglect and attend intimately to the embodied crises of and sustained violence against women, queer, of color, marginalized, and figured/disfigured bodies, tossed to the political side of the road like a used condom." - Michelle Fine, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Women's Studies and Urban Education, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, USA

"The various scholarly contributions in this collection are written in a succinct, clear and accessible style which is suitable for newcomers to the subject. The outcome is a major accomplishment, making this book indispensable as both a learning and a teaching resource." - Matthew Hall, Feminism & Psychology
