Key Contemporary Concepts Reviews


'A book which all students of the human sciences will find useful, both for its range of engagements and its pedagogic ambitions. The book is best thought of as a cabinet full of the theoretical curiosities of the modern age, able to be dipped in to and out of at will. And, like a cabinet of curiosities, it is not just a repository of knowledge but, also, in the very best sense, an entertainment. To be read and to be enjoyed.' Nigel Thrift, University of Bristol
