Reviews
Review Quotes
This is an exciting book that opens up Deleuze and Guattari's work to a rethinking and recomplexifying of race and what anti-racist struggles entail. Deleuze and Race provides a compelling example of how we can understand race in terms that both respect the lived reality of those living with or under racism, and those that have come to develop alternatives, self-representations and practices that move beyond and undermine racism's continuing force. This collection of essays shows how thinking in terms of becomings, movements of territorialisation and deterritorialisation, lines of flight, forms of biopower and geopower, enables new more dynamic concepts of race to be developed.

As this collection of essays shows, the politics of phenotype and origin is never far from any engaged consideration of how the world works. It is well know that Deleuze and Guattari provide new concepts of the ways humans are differentiated, through processes of state formation, capitalism, madness and desire. But while sexual difference has received much attention in Deleuze studies, racial difference seems to be a more thorny problematic. In this volume, an international and multidisciplinary team of scholars inaugurates the Deleuzian study of race through a wide-ranging and evocative array of case studies.Key Features Highlights implicit and explicit references to race across Deleuze's oeuvre Relates Deleuze to other theorists of race, such as Foucault, Butler and Gilroy Uses examples drawn from the arts as well as current affairs and historyArun Saldanha is Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Minnesota.

Description for Reader
The first collection to theorise race and racism through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze In this volume, an international and multidisciplinary team of scholars inaugurates the Deleuzian study of race through a wide-ranging and evocative array of case studies. Deleuze and Guattari provided new concepts of how humans are differentiated, through processes of state formation, capitalism, madness and desire. While sexual difference has received much attention in Deleuze studies, racial difference is a thornier problematic. As this collection of essays shows, Deleuze and Guattari had extremely original things to say about race, and the politics of phenotype and origin is never far from any engaged consideration of how the world works. Key Features Unpacks the implicit and explicit references to race across Deleuze's body of work, with a special focus on the Capitalism and Schizophreniaworks written with Guattari Couples Deleuze with other theorists of race, such as Foucault, Butler and Gilroy Draws examples from the arts, current affairs and history Contributors include Claire Colebrook, John E. Drabinski, Ian Buchanan and Laura U. Marks
Main Description
Deleuze and Guattari had extremely original things to say about race, and the politics of phenotype and origin is never far from any engaged consideration of how the world works. In this volume, an international and multidisciplinary team of scholars inaugurates the Deleuzian study of race through a wide-ranging and evocative array of case studies.
Main Description
Gilles Deleuze challenges traditional assumptions about human difference, particularly through his collaborations with the philosopher Félix Guattari. While sexual difference is a popular focus of Deleuzean studies, racial difference is another, more problematic concern. As this collection shows, Deleuze and Guattari had extremely original things to say about race, believing the politics of phenotype and origin are integral to a thorough consideration of human civilization. In this volume, international, multidisciplinary scholars kick off a Deleuzian study of race through wide-ranging and evocative case studies. The first book to relate Deleuze's philosophy to issues of race, this volume unpacks implicit and explicit references to race across Deleuze's entire body of work, with a special focus on Capitalism and Schizophrenia , both written with Guattari. Contributions pair Deleuze with other theorists, including Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and Paul Gilroy, broadening the collection's scope to continental philosophy and critical theory. Scholars draw on examples from the arts, current affairs, and history, and include Claire Colebrook (Penn State University), John E. Drabinski (Amherst College), Ian Buchanan (Cardiff University), and Laura U. Marks (Simon Fraser University).
