This is a book to read and reread. For not only are the insights of the author herself highly valuable . . . she also conveys, in an exciting way, and from an ecological perspective, some of the most important ideas of such thinkers as Deleuze, Guattari, Serres, Cixous and Irigaray..
A worthy read.Political Geography
Verena Andermatt Conley demonstrates that ecological thinking was an extremely important element in the formation of poststructuralism and she thus powerfully reorients our understanding of that innovative generation of French thought. Moreover the ecopolitics that emerge from her readings is innovative and refreshingly different from the various strands of ecological thought dominant in the Anglophone world today.Michael Hardt, Duke University
...the attention Conley draws to the geophilosophical basis of Deleuze and Guattari's thought...is the most important feature of her book... So what ecopolitics must do, and what this book does very well, is initiate a new dialectic, one that balances capitalism and the environment, without allowing the priority generally afforded humans to dictate terms...Ecopolitics: The Environment in Poststructuralist Thought
is undoubtedly deserving of a broad readership.Ian Buchanan, University of Tasmania
