Editorial Reviews


"Amin's commitment to re-evaluating the unsettling practices of Genet's life represents a serious attempt to contend with the colonial, racist, and hierarchical legacies present in queer social forms. . . . Disturbing Attachments, by investigating the traction queer theory can have in contending with the compromises and failures hidden within its own field, demonstrates the potential for critical self-inquiry."
-- Rajat D. Singh ― Gay & Lesbian Review Published On: 2018-03-01

"There is no doubt that Disturbing Attachments is, ?rst and foremost, a work of and about queer studies, a fearless and scholarly probing of its disciplinary norms, its discursive limits, and its most embarrassing relations. It should be read by all those who care about the discipline’s future . . . and, most importantly, by those who care about its past."
-- Andrew Counter ― French Studies Published On: 2018-10-01

"Amin’s book offers a dizzying number of theoretical interventions, in an elegant style that makes up for the uncompromising density of the text. With refreshing currency, Disturbing Attachments displaces queer studies outside its presentist US context."
-- Mehammed Amadeus Mack ― Journal of Middle East Women's Studies Published On: 2019-07-01

"Disturbing Attachments is a formidable read. It is theoretically mobile, stylistically gratifying, and conceptually probing."
-- Helmut Puff ― American Historical Review Published On: 2020-01-01


"Queer studies desperately needs this book. Cogent, timely, and pathbreaking, Kadji Amin's work disrupts the genealogies of queer attachments while simultaneously interrogating, and at times relentlessly, the shape of the political in queer theory and the idealization of the queer erotic."
-- Sharon Patricia Holland, author of ― The Erotic Life of Racism
