From the PublisherThe Signifying Body is actually a deceptively thin book, which belies the dense theoretical work taking place in its 150 pages.— JAC
"The topic of this book is significant and important. First, there needs to be more work that explores the intersection of race and gender in continental philosophy, and this book is a valuable example of such work. Second, the author bridges the gap between studies of Fanon and discussions of gender and sexual identity in continental philosophy. She also brings together Fanon, Heidegger, and Irigaray in a manner that pushes the scholarship on all three figures. Finally, the author's attempt to theorize the ethical encounter of the racial, sexual, and gendered Other is intriguing and should help to further the debate on that issue."— Ronald Sundstrom, University of San Francisco"
