"Jacqueline Rose, friend and ally, achieves what many of us attempt: to preserve the delicacy of a training in literary reading in the tough realities of the political. She made psychoanalysis possible for a whole generation. This volume gives a sense of the range: analysis, text, warofrom South Africa to Palestine." --oGayatri Chakravorty Spivak, University Professor, Columbia University
"Jacqueline Rose is one of our most trenchant, politically engaged intellectuals. It will be important for a wide range of readers to have this collection of her essays, along with the introduction, which will help readers unfamiliar with the full range of her work, and the splendid interview that concludes the volume." --Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley
