'Vikki Bell's book is both philosophically erudite and politically acute. She is an excellent reader of philosophy and literature alike, uncovering the most crucial cultural presumptions in contemporary political discourse. She moves with great skill through Simone de Beavoir, Hannah Arendt, and Richard Wright, making us rethink some of the most basic philosophical notions that inform our ordinary understanding of politics. Her emphasis on temporality and fantasy will provoke us all to think more radically about where we are and where we think we are going' - Judith Butler, Maxine Elliot Professor, University of California at Berkeley
