Since its publication in 1990, Gender Trouble has become one of the key works of contemporary feminist theory, and an essential work for anyone interested in the study of gender, queer theory, or the politics of sexuality in culture.
"Indispensable for feminist theory.."
"At times brilliant, always groundbreaking, "Gender Trouble is bound to make some trouble of its own."
"The most authoritative attack to date on the 'naturalness' of gender. This is a brilliant and innovative book."
-Sandra Lee Bartky
"A tremendously sophisticated and well-argued book, a very exciting read."
-Women & Politics
