"This is a broad and authoritative book, which puts together philosophy, politics, economy and technology. Much more than a loose collection of articles, the book expresses a coherent point of view: cosmopolitan in outlook but attentive to local differences and specific cultural practices. Held and Moore have produced a benchmark book in the analysis of cultural politics." Richard Sennett - Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and New York University. "This is a staggering collection of state-of-the art interventions by top-notch specialists and world-renowned scholarsA...A major contribution to interdisciplinary debates on contemporary culture, and a must for every thinking person." Rosi Braidotti, Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, Utrecht University
