MEDIA REVIEWS

"An exciting collection that addresses persistent problems in social theory and activism. Is feminist analysis more perceptive than queer analysis in understanding Asian women's same-sex experiences? How does attention class alter how we understand globalization and identity? These essays, by anthropologists, historians and local activist scholars, encourage us to ask new questions and should be read by anyone interested in gender, sexuality and culture today." - Don Kulick, Professor of Anthropology, Director of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, New York University, author of Travesti: Sex, Gender and Culture among Brazilian Transgendered Prostitutes
