"A rich, immensely generous, and quite beautiful book." London Review of Books "Playing on Braidotti's inspiration room music and genetics in her definition of transpositions. I read her wise, smart, inviting book as itself a "transposon"-i.e. a mobile vehicle for risky change in the score of post humanist becoming that is mortal life. Braidotti transplants vigorous philosophical shoots into worldly solid as she cultivates less death-defying, more nomadic, and insatiably curious and passionate ethics for our schizophrenic biotechnological times." Donna J. Haraway, University of California at Santa Cruz "This is a remarkably strong book, especially in its negotiation of the complex tension between the multiplicity of political forces on the one hand and the sustained commitment to emancipatory politics (without essential identity) on the other. A substantial intervention in social and political theory." Claire Colebrook, Edinburgh University
