As a linguist, Julia Kristeva has pioneered a revolutionary theory of the sign in its relation to social and political emancipation; as a practicing psychoanalyst, she has produced work on the nature of the human subject and sexuality, and on the "new maladies" of today's neurotic. The Portable Kristeva is the only fully comprehensive compilation of Kristeva's key writings. The second edition includes added material from Kristeva's most important works of the past five years, including The Sense and Non-Sense of Revolt, Intimate Revolt, and Hannah Arendt. Editor Kelly Oliver has also added new material to the introduction, summarizing Kristeva's latest intellectual endeavors and updating the bibliography.

Kelly Oliver is professor of philosophy and women's studies at SUNY-Stony Brook. She is the author of Reading Kristeva and Womanizing Nietzsche among other books.

Editorial Reviews

[Kristeva's] work is entirely new, accurate, not through scientific puritanism but because it takes up all the space it deals with, fills it precisely, making it necessary for anyone who counts himself out to reveal himself as an opponent or a censor.
