What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

''Brad Evans and Julian Reid have written one of the most radical and illuminating critiques of the currently fashionable notion of resilience.''
Saskia Sassen, Columbia University

''Anyone interested in political theory after biopolitics must read this book.''
Cary Wolfe, RICE University

''Evans and Reid do more than provide a devastating critique of resilience - they dare us to leave this barren landscape by having the confidence to embrace human life as art, and to assert our poetic and dramatic subjectivities against the dominance of the machine.''
Mark Duffield, University of Bristol

''Resilient Life is a tour de force. Brad Evans and Julian Reid mount a powerful indictment of the prophetic image of thought and the oppressive worldview of endless insecurity and threat that such thinking produces. If there is any possibility of welcoming and celebrating a world yet to come, one that is radically different from what currently is, we must, they insist, begin by moving beyond the inertia and defeatism that a catastrophic imaginary generates.''
Adrian Parr, University of Cincinnati
