Que(e)rying political practices

Nico Beger

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Available in paperback for the first time The first queer and poststructuralist reading of political rights concepts in the specific European transnational context Investigates the conceptual themes of lesbian, gay and transgender rights and lobby politics in Europe and their open and hidden relations to binary and hierarchical orders of dominance Contributes to an understanding of the conditions upon which politics of inclusion, participation, social justice and equality rest and why struggles for sexual minority rights have been so difficult and slow Illuminates how the paradigms of political discourse constitute, consolidate and contest the meaning and cultural significance of gender and sexuality on modern, democratic, capitalist European societies
