I chose a few Macat summaries and am disappointed. This one is repetitive and extremely superficial. I would guess that its audience is teenagers and others of about high school levels of education who want to know how many copies of a particular book have been sold rather than a more detailed exploration of the ideas within the author's work.
I'm not sure how a book like this is written. No one seems to want to claim authorship. It's written by the publisher? That should have been a red light.
I have been slogging through Butler's work, eager to unlock its insights. This overview identifies key concepts, outlines a context and how Butler is used and critiqued.
The narrator mixed up the abbreviation LGBT to LBGT by chapter 10 and further. Overall a valuable book that explains an intimidating body of text by Judith Butler and portrays the same ideas without adopting over complicated Austin-esque dance around the English language.
Good intro and overview of butlers theories. Clearly expressed thankyou. I am entering the world of feminist theories so useful for me
