Great text on the historical relationship between capitalism and the formation and emergence of sexual identities. Although it is a scholarly piece of work, it often felt somewhat dense and unclear in terms of the prose. Overall, a wonderful feminist Marxian analysis of sexuality and why political economy is important to the future of cultural studies in relation to race, gender, and sexuality.

very theoretical analysis on identity politics and how it fits in imperialism, the limits of staying within the confines of identity politics only from a marxist feminist perspective. Always connecting class in the identity realm.

ok it's a bit of a slog from 'the academy'-- but i get so bored with queer self focus and analysis that is divorced from economics
