Overview

“An international treasure . . . beautifully written, deeply engrossing.” —Barbara Ehrenreich

Encountering anarchists in her native Australia led Lynne Segal into political activism, beginning with her first arrest for protesting at the age of eighteen. Moving to London, she spent the 1970s combining motherhood with communal living, politicking, and free love, eventually moving into academia. Looking back at a life well lived, Making Trouble examines where that generation of dreamers have ended up.

Lynne Segal is a professor of gender studies at Birkbeck College, London. She has published widely on sexual politics, gender concerns, and social justice. Her books include Straight Sex: Rethinking the Politics of Pleasure.
