    [this is a short review that may be expanded at a later date]: the worst parts of this volume (and they are legitimately wretched] is the resurfacing of anarcho-communism as a conceptual framework to understand struggles (it's not like i shouldn't expect this from AK press, but i still feel the ok with calling a dying and obsolete system odious) specifically in "Radical Queers and Class Struggle: A Match to Be Made" (Gayge Operaista) or reproducing work that has been literally done thousands of [...]

    For a book on queer anarchism, this was shockingly boring. Its also intensely arrogant to assert that all of these professional academics are "queering anarchism" when the anarchist movement has an extremely rich history of participation by queer and gender variant people. Then again, as one of the other commenters mentioned, this book is comprised almost entirely of workerist and platformist types so their anarchism might need to be 'queered' a little. Also, "Queering Heterosexuality"? Really? [...]

    Some good ideas hidden among pages and pages of ramblings and personal stories

    this book was lent to me by a friend who hadn't finished reading it yet and to be honest i'm sure if they'd finished reading it, they wouldn't have recommended it to me. it's very boring and has a section on "queering heterosexuality" which is about how if you have enough weird sex, no matter what your actual orientation, you should be able to call yourself queer. which is, you know, not true. it's not great.


  • LB

    I really enjoyed this one, although I've gone through it quite quickly, its one I could read again, take notes and branch out into other writings because of it. I think the idea of being a queer anarchist feminist is something I've always been without knowing the terminology until recently. I think this could be useful reading for anyone who thinks that our current societal structures are failing people.


  • Genavive

    Very informational collection of works describing the intersectionality of queer and anarchist struggles and desires. I fit into one or more of those categories, and it helped me even realize some things about myself and my very beliefs.


  • Rupert P-h

    Kind of a 2.5 For me, it wasn't exciting enough to get a stronger response despite my high hopes. The comments section covers most of what falls flat with this collection: more cis/straight targeted than I'd prefer, and nothing particularly new for queer anarchists. Some good essays, some bad.


  • Corvus

    I read this book. I enjoyed this book. My critical review does not mean I did not like this book. Also, this cover art is spectacular.That said, I think this book is more for educating straight and cis anarchists or unfortunately even making straight people think they are queer. If you're already a queer and/or trans anarchist than you may not find anything new here. I felt uncomfortable as well with how much of the book was dedicated to finding ways to make cis/heterosexuality queer and the def [...]


  • Shay Gabriel

    Half the essays were pretty great and critical of the notion that we can screw our way to freedom; the other half, unfortunately, exemplify some of the most obnoxious trends in radical queer politics. Of particular note is "queering heterosexuality," a rather insufferable piece written by a "non-straight-identified heterosexual" who uses the word t****y to describe some transgender people she hung out with once. There's also an essay that literally calls binary-identified transgender people coun [...]


  • Helene

    Since this is a collection, of course some of the articles were better than others, and there was a lot of repetition - like basically 25 definitions of 'queer' and 'anarchism'. But some very interesting topics were covered - I had never heard of queercripping, for instance. Some topics sounded interesting, like an intersection between anarchism and BDSM, but were covered very inadequately. There was also a lot of focus on practical life style decisions. But yes, I will recommend this, but the t [...]


  • subterran

    this is very much an introductory book, but while i appreciated its readability, some chapters gave numerous sweeping claims without giving any specific examples, and i wouldn't have trusted the information they gave if i hadn't already known it to be true. other chapters seem like they would be more useful to a reader new to these topics, but it would probably be better to get your information from a book of more consistent quality.i was disappointed by a definition of queerness that included c [...]


  • P.H.G. Haslam

    A very exciting book. I've rarely read something I agree so wholeheartedly with! And in some really unusual ways. The first six or so essays are solid and brilliant, but after then it becomes more hit and miss. Plenty worthwhile reading despite this. The book gives me a complete assurance in really questioning every one of my own assumptions, and the central importance of seeing the grey in between.Fantastic thing to be in print, much recommended.


  • Shannon

    Full disclosure, I know two of the editors. Much of this is very thoughtful and made me think of things I hadn't. Much of it will strike seasoned anarcha-queer readers as harmless treading of dialectic water. I am genuinely confused as to the inclusion of Sandra Jeppesen's essay, "Queering Heterosexuality" (and, as alluded to in another review, her use of the T-word). Worth a read, especially as an introduction to, err, queering anarchism.


  • Chris Keeve

    I read this as someone with very little exposure to anarchist texts/theory, but a lot of familiarity with intersectional queer/trans theory. It's a good stepping stone into radical queer thought, especially as it pertains to something as simple as re-thinking the ways in which we relate to each other and engage with each other inside and outside of radical spaces.


  • Shane

    This is an important and diverse volume that really does draw practical connections between contemporary queer theory and anarchism, especially with a look towards intersectionality Make this a must read!


  • Arlian

    I originally was given this book to review for MRR. It's fine, not as bad as I originally feared it would be, at least. Too liberal for my tastes, but not as bad as I originally thought it would be. 3.5 stars.


  • Devon

    a diverse collection of essaysme read like freshman gender studies papers, a few are brilliant. are somewhere in the middle. i especially liked Jaime Heckert's "Anarchy without Opposition" and Saffo Papantonopoulou's "Straightness Must Be Destroyed"


  • Timothy

    I really liked this book. all of the essays were thought provoking and discussed a wide array of topics at a comfortable introductory level.
