"Bodies in Crisis is one of the few books that deals with the bodily dimensions of exclusion and resistance in Latin America. Bravo to Sutton for this highly original work."
(Javier Auyero author of Flammable: Environmental Suffering in an Argentine Shantytown
"A masterful study on embodiment and modes of feminity in 21st century Argentina. It is accessible enough to be used with upper-level undergraduates even as it is detailed and complex enough to be essential for specialists in Argentina, a difficult balance which Sutton nonetheless achieves flawlessly."
"Barbara Sutton provides a unique account of the social and political conjuncture in her country at the beginning of the twenty-first century that is both a brilliant attempt to theorize women's lives and struggles by bringing thhe body clearly 'back' into the picture, and a rendering of a concrete story of oppression and resistance in which women come to life as embodied subjects of history. Her well-written text brings her informants' stories richly to life."
"I rarely say this about academic books but I had a hard time putting this one down! Sutton has authored an exciting and engaging contribution to the literature on women and social movements."
