"What a joy it is to greet this inspirational book of engaged feminist political theory. I love the image of our thinkers floating down from on high, some free flying, some with parachutes entangled into webs of collectivity, all, aiming to land on an earth that has been transformed by their courageous work. J.K. Gibson-Graham applauds this daring stunt!" (From the 'Foreword' by J.K. Gibson-Graham) "This book brings together some of the most exciting social theorists writing, thinking and working today. It ventures beyond familiar accounts of contemporary challenges and opens up important new ways of framing future trajectories for change. It should be read far and wide." (Professor Keri Facer, University of Bristol, AHRC Leadership Fellow for Connected Communities)
