Editorial Reviews

'Books like this one are urgently needed. With this strong collection Anna Hickey-Moody and Peta Malins have taken to heart Deleuze's advice that the effort to create concepts must always start with concrete and simple situations. The two editors succeed, with the help of contributors from a variety of disciplines and venues of research, to give us a valuable, novel and persuasive demonstration of the kind of social analysis and political intervention that Deleuze's resourcefulness is capable of bringing about. This volume will be appreciated for its new and challenging perspectives on social issues of current concern.' Constantin V. Boundas, Professor Emeritus, Philosophy and Center for Theory, Culture and Politics, Trent University, Ontario, Canada'This timely volume is an antidote to the waning of philosophical theory in social thought. It demonstrates how to study contemporary social issues through Deleuze and Guattari's philosophy, putting to work their key concepts on some of the most pressing issues and challenges of our time. The assembled essays boldly step beyond identity politics, producing a subjective, affective, socially informed ethics adapted to urban and remote rural locations, and plot escape routes from the axiomatization of everything in the time of immaterial labour. Editors Anna Hickey-Moody and Peta Malins and their impressive list of contributors show how theory as practice is a necessary ingredient for social change. Deleuzian Encounters is a rallying point for socially-minded theorists who have not forgotten that the point of philosophy is to change the world.' - Gary Genosko, Canada Research Chair, Lakehead University, Canada
