Deleuze and Guattari
Author(s): Kenneth Surin

Representing a sustained engagement with the thought of Deleuze and Guattari, covering more than two decades and on a wide range of topics, from aesthetics and literature to capitalism and Marxism, Kenneth Surin takes politics as the thematic thread to this collection.

Deleuze and Guattari: Selected Writings tackles both central political issues, such as the State, globalization, and the citizen, as well as the political qualities of topics generally considered outside this realm, such as the animal, the image, and the literary. Surins pursues theoretical interventions inspired by Deleuze and Guattari's scholarship in relation to Marxism and specifically materialism and notions of political solidarity, which they did not engage with extensively or explicitly themselves, but which extend their critique along new lines of flight.

This book demonstrates the breadth and lasting relevance of Deleuze's and Guattari's legacy by tracing the affinities between Deleuze and both Marxist sociologist, Antonio Negri, and Raymond Williams, one of the founders of cultural studies as a discipline.

“Kenneth Surin's book is a thrilling journey through Deleuze and Guattari's vertiginous thought. Political philosophy sheds its tether to state and citizen, to be pitched anew on moving and moveable ground. Through a wild array of concepts and empirical themes, Surin gives us politics as the posing of problems, the creation of worlds, and the rush of events.” —Nicholas Thoburn, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, University of Manchester, UK
