Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this theoretically sophisticated and historically rigorous book, Christopher Chitty builds a compelling argument for an approach to the history of sexuality that is embedded in property relations, economic crises, and political institutions. The result is a modernized History of Sexuality that speaks to contemporary concerns with increasing forms of precarity. A work ahead of its time, Sexual Hegemony makes an uncannily prescient and powerful intervention. Its importance and brilliance cannot be overstated.”
-- Petrus Liu, author of ― Queer Marxism in Two Chinas

“[Sexual Hegemony] is extraordinary, even singular—and my hope is that it will change the way we think about sexuality and anticapitalist struggle alike.”
-- Christopher Nealon, from the Introduction

"Both a labor of love and a collaboration across the frontier of death, Sexual Hegemony is one of that desire’s most uniquely affecting expressions."
-- Josephine Livingstone ― The New Republic Published On: 2020-11-02

Sexual Hegemony is not a theory of sexuality but a history of it. It’s a history of the people who were left out of previous histories and who more closely resemble the same people left out of the modern, mainstream gay and lesbian movement…. In Chitty’s history, queerness is criminality and vice versa, and until we undo the stigmatization of those working against the regime of property and its armed wing, the state, our gender and sexuality will be, in Chitty’s phrase, only ‘partially emancipated.’… The implications of Chitty’s history are not just for those who study the broad movements of capitalism but also those who live within it now.”
-- Adam Fales ― Homintern Published On: 2020-11-09

“Homosexuality is a modern invention, and 150 years later, we’re still arguing about what it means and where it came from, and whether it was invented at all. It is, to quote Andrew Holleran, ‘like a boarding school in which there are no vacations.’ Chitty invites us to burn the boarding school down, and in the ashes, with history as our guide, to build something for everyone.”

-- Ben Miller ― The Baffler Published On: 2021-01-28

“Christopher Chitty’s Sexual Hegemony, an ambitious retelling of the history of capitalism through the politics of gay sex...suggests new substantive and methodological directions for the history of homosexuality—directions that could transform the meaning of queer politics in our moment.”

-- Kate Redburn ― Dissent Magazine Published On: 2021-04-22
