. . . Brown's work is pathbreaking. . . . an intellectual feast . . . it's always lucid, brilliantly argued, with impressive regard for complexity and nuance, and it comes complete with a feminist passion, ready to pounce.
Santa Cruz Review


The strengths of Brown's work are striking. . . . Brown, although scholarly, writes with force, elegance and a pervasive irony. Her message comes through with urgency . . . Brown has written that rare book with a vision complex enough to challenge a cynic's perspective.
Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy


. . . offers important insights about classical social and political theory for feminism . . .
Contemporary Sociology


Is politics gendered? Wendy Brown thinks so, and argues for this point with elegance, imagination and pungent phrases. Brown's book is challenging, provocative and . . . original; it does force us to question the degree to which gender controls our politics.
The Review of Politics


. . . provocative and important . . . this book will reward not only the political philosopher, but also anyone interested in how we have become the 'political animals' Aristotle claims we are.
American Political Science Review


Brown's volume is an important addition to the literature in both feminist theory and political theory.
