Product description

Review

Brilliant! I have been waiting twenty years for a book like this. It should be required reading for any person even considering entering the dialogue about where the 'B' fits in the LGBT world. Let the revolution begin."
- Kyle Schickner , Bi Activist/Filmmaker

' Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution ... is a groundbreaking exploration of bisexual politics by a revolutionary thinker.'
- Publishers Weekly

'This is the most innovative and exciting book to be published on bisexuality in many years, and one which will move work in this area forward in many vital ways. Eisner weaves together bisexual theory and activism with related areas in a sophisticated and rigorous manner that enriches both the field of bisexuality and those that are drawn into dialogue with it. In particular, the explorations of racialization and the conversations between bisexual activism and the politics of global conflicts are highly original, thought-provoking, and important. Throughout the book Eisner challenges existing practices, such as biphobia and 'mythbusting' of bisexual stereotypes, and puts forward intriguing and valuable alternatives. The book will be helpful far beyond the bisexual movement itself and is a must-read for feminists, LBG&T workers, critical race and queer theorists and activists particularly.'
- Meg Barker , author of The Bisexuality Report

' Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution is a brilliant and comprehensive look at where the bisexual movement has been, and where it should head in the future. Rather than merely denying or debunking the countless accusations and stereotypes that plague bisexuality (as many past writers have done), Shiri Eisner exposes the underlying assumptions and misconceptions about sex, gender, and sexuality that give rise to societal monosexism and biphobia. A must read, not only for those of us who fall under the bisexual umbrella, but forfeminists, queer and trans activists, and anyone who is concerned with social justice.'
- Julia Serano , author of Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity and Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive

' Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution is a breath of fresh air. So much of sexual-political activism and writing these days seems to seek acceptance by mainstream society rather than profound change. Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution steps right outside of that. It is far and away the most significant analysis of bisexuality published this century.'
- Sue George , author of Women and Bisexuality and blogger at Bisexuality and Beyond

'Shiri Eisner unpacks bisexuality and the bisexual experience, challenging 'monosexism' privilege in a refreshing, clear, unwavering voice. But, instead of the usual narratives of bi activism, Eisner brings us a global, 'radical' vision, recognizing the seemingly endless battle for mere acknowledgement as whole people, while taking us further-toward a 'bi revolution.' Make no mistake: Shiri Eisner offers us more than a fresh voice for a new generation of bi activism; Eisner offers us all a call to action.'
- William E. Burleson , author of Bi America: Myths, Truths, and Struggles of an Invisible Community

'Shiri Eisner has deftly woven a fresh, clear, subtle, and profound analysis of the revolutionary potential of bisexuality. I wholeheartedly recommend this passionate, engaging, and thought-provoking book to anyone who cares about the intersections of gender, sexuality, and social justice.'
- Jamie Heckert, PhD , co-editor of Anarchism & Sexuality: Ethics, Relationships and Power

'What a joy! Hurrah, hurrah. Decades after we birthed our bi US anthology, Eisner's practical tips for organizers, brain food for theory-heads, and inspirational proposals offer a visionary trans-national approach that takes bi experiences and identities to new levels, depths, breadths. A volume for all of us, bi every name we call ourselves.'
- Loraine Hutchins , co-editor of Bi Any Other Name: Bisexual People Speak Out "
