Product Description:

Review:

Rosi Braidotti's Nomadic Subjects has made a substantial contribution to the fields of continental philosophy and feminist theory, and her conceptual analysis is more relevant now than ever. Written in Braidotti's inimitable style, this second edition lays out the conceptual foundations that her later writing puts to work.--Amy Allen, Dartmouth College

This book exceeds the hyperboles one wants to draw upon to describe great books. By its title alone, Braidotti's Nomadic Subjects promises to avoid the cliches, oppositions and warring political divides that have come to mark theory. At once critical of the glibness of the present, yet avoiding easy nostalgia or utopianism while remaining active Braidotti's work signals a new style adequate for twenty-first century horizons. Hers is a nomadic theory, refusing to be anchored in any camp or tradition, and yet also a remarkable affirmation of the subject, even if that subject bears none of the usual (and now rather tiresome) attributes of self-possession, self-reflection and self-consciousness. For anyone who feels somewhat jaded or beleaguered by theory - and who wouldn't? - this book is a tonic, sounding the tone of the future.--Claire Colebrook, Sparks Professor of English, Penn State University

Nomadic Subjects inspires renewed feminist commitment to the movements that are redefining gender and its meaning for both men and women in all levels of culture.--Phyllis Kaminski "Feminist Teacher "

[Braodotti's] lively writing is a wonderful blend of the person and academic.... This book belongs in every library that serves graduate students and faculty in women's studies and philosophy.--Choice
