Summary

"Sex or gender? This false alternative, which has long befuddled the theorization of femininity and sexual difference, is exploded by this excellent collection. Relying on Lacan's eventful revision of Freud, the essays analyze various aspects and implications of the a-biological, a-constructivist process of "sexuation" by which the subject emerges, embodied and sexed, from its encounter with the Other. A bonfire of a book whose strong, often brilliant analyses generate a heat sufficient to warm a multitutude of feminist and political debates."--Joan Copjec, University at Buffalo, State University of New York
