This second edition reestablishes Braidotti as one of the most vibrant and important thinkers in poststructuralist feminism and adds to the first edition's key essays a selection of more recent work, concluding with an in-depth interview that clearly and frankly relates Braidotti's perspective to other positions in feminism, queer theory, and identity politics.
This book exceeds the hyperboles one wants to draw upon to describe great books. By its title alone, Nomadic Subjects promises to avoid the clichés, oppositions, and warring political divides that have come to mark theory. Critical of the glibness of the present yet avoiding easy nostalgia or utopianism, 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 yet 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, this book is a tonic, sounding the tone of the future.
