Now in its fourth edition, the critically acclaimed "Glossary of Contemporary Literary Theory" has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include over 70 important new terms and usages from this volatile and fast-changing field. A substantial number of the new entries come from the increasingly influential area of gender politics, including queer theory and masculinity studies. New terms in this edition include: camp reading, closet criticism, deghettoization, femaling, faghag/fagstag character, lavender language, literary cross-dressing, literary outing, sexual code-switching, and transgender. In addition, many existing entries have been revised, often substantially, and the guide to further reading has been updated. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
