Format: Paperback
This widely varied (perhaps appropriately) collection of essays shares a common commitment to exploring the concepts of Deleuze and Guattari in a variety of political and media assemblages. The topics range from addressing meta-theories such as Paul Patton's interesting comparison between D&G and Richard Rorty, to such narrowly focused pieces as Laleen Jayamanne's using D&G to examine Spike Lee's use of place in Lee's film Do the Right Thing. Particularly strong essays are Malene Busk's "Micropolitics: A Political Philosophy from Marx and Beyond," which provides a nice overview of the active political implications of Deleuze and Guattari, and Rosi Braidotti's "How to Endure Intensity: Towards a Sustainable Nomadic Subject," which combines Deleuzean concepts of becoming with a creative feminist commitment. Readers familiar with D&G's basic concepts will find interesting rhizomes to follow, but those new to these seminal thinker's unusual modes of thought might be better served familiarizing themselves with basic approaches first. Recommended for graduate-level and professional philosophers and media studies practitioners.
