“Design as Politics destroys our fantasies of 'sustainable design' and urges us to face our collective future. Read this before deciding whether you have the courage and conviction necessary to be a designer of the future.” ―Lisa Norton, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
“To say that this book is 'timely' is an understatement. Fry offers us one of the most prescient theses for the design of a different possible future – a time and a politics 'to-come' – that we have. We all ignore the messages of this book at our own peril.” ―Duncan Fairfax, Goldsmiths, University of London
“There is no more challenging and urgent political question than whether democracy is able to deliver sustainable economic and political futures. Fry's is the first book to ask this question, not in the abstract but in the context of asking how we make the future.” ―Clive Dilnot, Parsons, The New School for Design, New York
