POSTMODERN ENCOUNTERS. Foucault and Queer Theory. Queer theory is not a singular or systematic conceptual or method-ological framework, but a collection of intel-lectual engagements with the relations between sex, gender and sexual desire. Published in the USA in 1999 by Totem Books Inquiries to: PO Box 223, Canal Street Station, New York, NY 10013. If queer theory is a school of thought, then it’s one with a highly unorthodox view of discipline.

Sex Matters There’s been a lot of queer stuff going on in universities recently. Barbie, Shakespeare, even Jane Austen have been given a queer makeover. On the streets Bart Simpson is seen sporting a pink triangle, and the word ‘queer’, once hurled or whispered as an insult is now proudly claimed as a marker of transgression by people who once called themselves lesbian or gay. What’s it all about?

Michel Foucault is the most gossiped-about celebrity of French poststructuralist theory. The homophobic insult 'queer' is now proudly reclaimed by some who once called themselves lesbian or gay. What is the connection between the two?

This is a postmodern encounter between Foucault's theories of sexuality, power and discourse and the current key exponents of queer thinking who have adpted, revised and criticised Foucault. Our understanding of gender, identity, sexuality and cultural politics will be radically altered in this meeting of transgressive figures.

"Foucault and Queer Theory" excels as a brief introduction to Foucault's compelling ideas and the development of queer culture with its own outspoken views on heteronormativity, sado-masochism, performativity, transgender, the end of gender, liberation-versus-difference, late capitalism and the impact of AIDS on theories and practices.

This book provides an excellent overview of what has been grouped into "queer theory". It explains Foucault and the subsequent development of queer theories about various topics very concisely. The author discusses major contemporary thinkers like Judith Butler, and yet the prose and the layout remain straightforward and amazingly simple. No other queer theory book provides so much information in 80 pages.
By the way, anyone who likes the style of this book should check out the other brief and entertaining books in the "Postmodern Encounters" series.
