The Routledge Reader in Gender and Performance Reviews

""The Routledge Reader in Gender and Performance is a fascinating and useful collection of interdisciplinary essays... Bringing together some of the most important and groundbreaking theorists and performers of the late twentieth century, this reader juxtaposes essays on gender in performances in post-apartheid South Africa and post-Communist Russia with well known, and frequently cited essays by prominent feminist theorists such as Jill Dolan, Judith Butler, Teresa de Lauretis, and Laura Mulvey. Though the essays themselves, because they are mostly reprints, do not necessarily offer many groundbreaking ideas, their groupings and introductions offer opportunities for introducing film students and other scholars to the emergence of many important and widely known theories of performance.."
-"Quarterly Review of Film and Video
"The editors have put the "Reader together with exemplary care...there's stimulation for anyone wanting to survey the intellectual landscape of contemporary feminism."
-"Lambda Book Report, March 1999
