Now revised and expanded, this work remains an essential guide to anyone with an interest in gender, sexuality, and the relationship between feminism and queer theory.
‘In wonderfully accessible and penetrating analyses, Marinucci makes the case that feminist and queer theory are inseparable allies – or should be. With its comprehensive appendix and carefully organized chapters, Feminism is Queer is an ideal text for teaching about gender, sexuality, and the practice of theorizing.’
Marjorie Jolles, Roosevelt University

Based on original fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as research material from other conflict zones, Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War? challenges the recent prominence given to sexual violence, bravely highlighting various problems with isolating sexual violence from other violence in war.
‘In the last decade have we all crafted and wielded a too-cohesive, thus oddly too-comforting, story about wartime strategic rape? Weighing their rare interviews with Congolese male soldiers, Maria Eriksson Baaz and Maria Stern push us all not to sympathize with perpetrators, but to think seriously about the messiness of both war waging and storytelling.’

Migration has become a key area of preoccupation for governments, international agencies and human rights activists the world over. This book argues, however, that studies of migration have become too limited in scope, focusing on the policy demands of governments and humanitarian agencies.
‘Each chapter covers crucial issues, but the collection as a whole makes key interventions in understandings of policy and humanitarian issues. It is provocative and imaginative in its careful, scholarly and accessible treatment of issues frequently taken for granted by governments, international agencies and human rights activists.’
Ann Phoenix, Institute of Education, University College London
A staggeringly unique and insightful exploration of the anus.
