"The Anomie of the Earth appears at a decisive moment in our appraisals of all things nomos, all things Schmittian. Thoughtful, incisive, and stunning in its breadth, the volume brilliantly makes the case for thinking about forms of life antagonistically, while intervening boldly in current debates running from biopolitics to the postcolonial. A volume absolutely not to be missed."
— Timothy Campbell, coeditor of, Biopolitics: A Reader
"The Anomie of the Earth is an insightful and passionate call for a pluralist politics at a time when life and the Earth itself are at peril. By building bridges between two of the most daring traditions of epistemic and political experimentation, this volume gives new life to the ever elusive project of recasting the political along non-Eurocentric lines. What emerges from these pages is a tremendously enriched understanding of the relation between knowledge and action—a politics for the pluriverse."
— Arturo Escobar, author of, Encountering Development: The Making and Unmaking of the Third World
