"Incredibly inclusive, this is essential reading for students and teachers of Design Studies in any context. A superlative collection of authoritative contributions from many of the most influential writers on design, past and present." Paul Atkinson, Sheffield Hallam University, UK "The Reader combines new interpretations with influential texts that have shaped Design thinking over the last thirty years. It shows how Design is becoming more complex and how the emerging discipline of Design Studies has risen to this challenge. It will be an essential resource for students." Suzette Worden, Curtin University of Technology, Australia "A critical snapshot of what's vital now in global comparative critical thinking on Design. The clearly structured and framed sets of key essays disclose the full reach and power of the myriad acts of designing that create our realities and, increasingly, narrow our future options." Lisa Norton, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA "The Reader will become a standard reference for the subject. It establishes the field for all those interested in Design and its impact on the contemporary world. The Reader offers an informed overview of ways of engaging with the central themes of Design such as ethics, globalization, identity and gender." Jeremy Aynsley, Royal College of Art, UK "An extraordinarily valuable resource for students in all areas of Design. It opens up endless fields of inquiry and also affirms 'Design Studies' as the only theoretical framework which encompasses all the richness and multiplicity of Design both conceptually and globally." Eduardo Corte-Real, IADE Design School, Portugal
