Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A brilliant success. Ronell’s book makes us better understand who we are and what 'drives' us—that is to say, this is a book of the very first rank of importance."—Rüdiger Campe, professor of German, Johns Hopkins University

"As Ronell pursues the conceptual, figural, rhetorical, and even visual investigation of all the registers of testing, her line of argument remains exceptionally clear. The writing is always astute and imaginative—even witty. The Test Drive is cogently argued, exceptionally erudite, and stunningly original work.”—Hent de Vries, author of Religion and Violence: Philosophical Reflections from Kant to Derrida
