"In response to the noisy world of contemporary theory, Kavanagh has assembled a provocative collection of essays by critics and philosophers who share the conviction that there is a limit beyond which the drive to theorize transforms theory into something different from what it presents itself as being. . . . Limits attempts with considerable success to strike a delicate balance between critiquing theoretical excess and defending theory's usefulness."

—Scott Sprenger, Modern Language Notes
