Editorial Reviews

Review

“Halberstam’s marvelous new book combines fierce argumentation, vivid description, astute as well as hilarious commentary. The author not only provides a powerful critique of common defenses and dismissals of 'postmodernism,' but offers a redefinition of ‘identity politics’ for the new millennium as well.“
-Lisa Duggan,author of Twilight of Equality: Neoliberalism, Cultural Politics, and the Attack on Democracy



“The wide-ranging scope of (Halberstam’s) work both serves to make her book accessible to many kinds of readers as well as to show the wide scope in which her argument registers. This makes her book a joy to read. Similarly, her wit and ability to capture large theoretical terms in rich and layered (and funny!) images contributes to the pleasure of this book of ‘theory’.”
-The Cream City Review

,

“This small seductive book pours warmth as Halberstam confesses and connects movements of pop culture and high art to a deeper understanding of the potentials of the body. She includes us in her world and its privileged understanding of her subject....In a Queer Time displays Halberstam’s sophisticated understanding of contemporary culture in a plain and engaging tone.”
-Pop Matters

,

“An extremely honest and provocative book. Judith Halberstam’s In A Queer Time and Place both validates and admires the beauty of the transperson as well as the genderqueer in this new era of identity performance. It is an incredible portrayal of the partnership between trans issues and gay and lesbian issues that I applaud with a full heart.”
-JD Samson,from the band Le Tigre



“Halberstam’s text is academically important, critiquing identity politics and examining uncommon but essential transgender representations in art, film, and society.”
-The Bloomsbury Review

,

Well written, smart and eye opening. Not only for those interested in queer study. I especially liked the chapter on The Full Monty and Austin Powers.

it's impossible for me to be entirely fair because i absolutely LOVE judith halberstam...

as a student of gender and queer history, i find dr. halberstam's work so compelling because not only does it utilize pathbreaking and up-to-date theoretical schema, but the lovely doctor also writes with wit and ease, making her new book a very pleasurable read. her use, as always, of visual texts to suppliment her arguements is helpful and engaging. her work on trans issues is groundbreaking and fresh, and if you're going to read anything on the subject, please read her.

it's my dream to be the femme version of dr. halberstam. enough said.

This was my first time reading Halberstam and I've decided we don't jell. If you're a fan, of course you'll like her earlier work on Queer theory. If not, this book is hit or miss. My main complaint: too much of her argument involves the same stereotyping and intolerance she rails against.

This book was described as "used -- acceptable" and that is exactly how I found it. It has some significant water damage and a tiny bit of highlighting at the beginning, but I would expect these qualities in this book. No complaints.
