Gordon provides an explosive critique of contemporary popular and intellectual cultures.
Angela Y. DavisA brilliant blend of philosophy, memoir, and cultural analysis, Her Majesty's Other Children reflects Lewis Gordon's ongoing commitment to pursue critical scholarship that cuts across academic disciplines and geographic borders, straight to the heart of the urgent questions we face on the cusp of the new millennium. Without doubt, Gordon is one of the most important young intellectuals examining issues of race and gender today, and his ability to situate his reflections in an international contextat both the scholarly and personal levels, as he does heremakes his observations indispensable as we confront our collective future.
Manning MarableLewis Gordon is one of the most thoughtful critics of contemporary black life and society. Gordon's latest work, Her Majesty's Other Children, brings philosophical illumination to the contours of black social thought . . . his critics will be deeply impressed with the scholarly and passionate commentary he brings to the debate about the black intelligentsia.
Sylvia WynterWriting as a Fanon scholar and jazz musician, Lewis Gordon incisively restores the Fanon for whom one emancipatory goal was uppermost"to set man free." It is in its reenactment of this goal that Gordon's Her Majesty's Other Children is distinguished not only from the works that it critiques . . . but also from the recent spate of books that have set out to academicize the issue of race. In Gordon's work, the emancipatory goal of Fanon's work, its Copernican insight, is dynamically renewed in the terms called for by the approaching end of our millennium.
