'Transgender Jurisprudence: Dysphoric Bodies of Law is an important book. ... Sharpe's discussion [of trangender jurisprudence]... is convincing and thought-provoking, ... her observations incisive and legally persuasive ... [and] her examination of the fundamental heterosexism and phallocentricity of "reform" jurisprudence is brilliant.'

-Queen's Law Journal (Vol 28(1) 2002 pp 363-369 at pp 365, 366, 368 and 369), Professor Bruce MacDougall of the Faculty of Law, University of British Columbia, Vancouver

'Transgender Jurisprudence is a work of the most careful and comprehensive scholarship ... [and] ... will, I have no doubt, be a standard resource to all those who have reason to work in the area, both as practicing lawyers, activists, or academics, in years to come.'

-Sydney Law Review (Vol 24 2002 pp 442-448 at p 443), Professor Desmond Manderson, Canada Research Chair in Law & Discourse, McGill University, Montreal

'Transgender Jurisprudence provides an excellent, well-researched contribution to the fields of transgender studies and jurisprudence concerning gender and sexuality. ... It is also a valuable contribution to wider discussions concerning feminism, poststructuralism and queer studies.'

-Res Publica (Vol 8(3) 2002 pp 275-283 at pp 282-283), Dr Surya Munro of the Department of Law, Keele University

'[Sharpe] expresses the hope that the book has made an important contribution ... That it has done so is beyond doubt. Indeed more than a contribution, Sharpe has comprehensively reshaped and redefined the field of transgender jurisprudence. ... [T]he end result is a book which is not only sustained, integrated and comparative, but which introduces a set of original and sophisticated arguments that will provide an indispensable grounding for subsequent work in the field for some time to come.'

-Griffith Law Review (Vol 12(2) 2003 pp 387-390 at p 390), Professor Rosemary Hunter, Dean of the Faculty of Law, Griffith University

[Transgender Jurisprudence] has already become a foundational work by which others will be measured. ... [It] sets a high bar ... As one who litigates cases on behalf of transgender people as well as those involving same-sex couples seeking marriage rights, I think Sharpe has done an incredible job identifying [homophobia as] the source of the tension in such cases.'

- Adelaide Law Review Vol 24(2) 2003 pp 99-104 at 104.
