Editorial Reviews

Review

<|>Small Wonder<|> is an extraordinary book in both its philosophical richness and its poetic evocation of a vision of hope that does not falter before the direness of our time. Dallmayr brings his vast erudition of the philosophical tradition to bear onsome of the most burning issues that any critical theory has to face in today?s world. It is a beautiful and somber book that reminds us of our responsibility to take notice of those ways in which a new world is being brought into being in the crevices and cracks of our everyday activities... (Drucilla Cornell, Professor of Political Science, Comparative Literature, and Women and Gender Studies, Rutgers University)

There is no single conclusion to be drawn from Small Wonder, but rather little pockets of hope within the text. With the multitude of topics approached, Dallmayr avoids prescribing a totalizing thought to rescue us from empire in its many forms, but provides a book which will speak differently to each reader. The disparate topics allow the reader to focus on particular aspects, but also remind them to adopt a holistic image of thought. Finally, the biggest contribution of Small Wonder is Dallmayr's employment of a more 'practical philosophy' approach to global politics, which successfully interconnects the theoretical and the empirical. (Mark Edward Millennium: Journal of International Studies)

Small Wonder draws on a brilliant palate of thinkers-in Western and non-Western political theory, Frankfurt School critical theory, twentieth century Continental philosophy, post-colonial theory and literature-to argue artfully against empire and for peaceful global governance. Dallmyer's orientation is at once perspectival and global, deeply learned and politically urgent, fierce, humble, and generous. This is an erudite and compelling work of political theory, but it is also a beacon of hope and a tribute to thinking in a wretched historical time. (Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley)

<|>Small Wonder<|> is an extraordinary book in both its philosophical richness and its poetic evocation of a vision of hope that does not falter before the direness of our time. Dallmayr brings his vast erudition of the philosophical tradition to bear on some of the most burning issues that any critical theory has to face in today’s world. It is a beautiful and somber book that reminds us of our responsibility to take notice of those ways in which a new world is being brought into being in the crevices and cracks of our everyday activities.
