Those who've learn Susan Faludi's _Stiffed_ will locate many parallels among the 2 books, although this one is targetted at a extra educational viewers. a few familiarity with psychoanalytic and poststructuralist idea can be worthy. Savran refers on numerous occassions to Judith Butler, so having learn _Gender Trouble_ will be worthy heritage.
