Hospitality is critically important in Derrida's writings, and his work in this field has been influential across a range of disciplines from geography, politics and sociology to literary studies and philosophy. While it is part of everyday experience, and every society has a code of hospitality by which behaviour is judged, Derrida also argues for the impossibility of true hospitality.

Judith Still shows how this functions as a way of thinking about relations between individuals, and also as a way of analysing the (often inhospitable) reception of outsiders, such as refugees or migrants, by the community or state. She also follows the thread of sexual difference in Derrida's writing in order to shed light on his exploration of the complex and delicate, strange yet familiar, political and ethical dilemmas of how to be those impossible things, a good host and a good guest. Hospitality to animals is taken as a limit case in defining what it is to be human.

Recensione:

An important, intelligent book on the context of Derrida's thinking about hospitality ... This indispensable volume enhances understanding of the French cultural and political context of Derrida's thinking. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. --N. Lukacher, University of Illinois at Chicago, Choice

Still succeeds admirably, in my view, in exploring the traditional model of hospitality with reference to the Odyssey and the Old Testament (chapter 2); and in response to that, the implications of a maternal model of hospitality, first for friendship, which is traditionally viewed as existing only between men (chapter 3); then for naming as an issue of hospitality in the colonial context (chapter 4); thereafter for the welcoming to Europe of migrants with their Gods (chapter 5); and last, for our relation to non-human animals (chapter 6). In each instance, Still convincingly shows the link with hospitality, which may not be immediately obvious to the reader. There are many gems in this book. --Jacques de Ville, University of the Western Cape, Oxford Literary Review

This impressive book expertly welcomes the reader into the difficulties of the question of hospitality. While interpreting work on this topic by Derrida and Levinas, Cixous and Irigaray, Still also opens new doors onto issues in feminism and post-colonialism. She refers to telling examples in contemporary politics, and unfailingly reflects on the way her own work is performatively implicated in the structures of hospitality she is drawing out. --Geoffrey Bennington, Asa G. Candler Professor of Modern French Thought, Emory University
