“McGowan shows that a genuinely emancipatory politics is intrinsically universalist, and he reveals the various ways in which identity politics inevitably serves the conservative establishment and traps us into a conception of politics as a struggle of one identity against others. Universality and Identity Politics is a groundbreaking book.”
~Mari Ruti, author of Penis Envy and Other Bad Feelings: The Emotional Costs of Everyday Life
