Review quote

-This is a significant contribution to the expanding body of work on Ranciere. It spans an impressive array of fields, from the social sciences and political theory to feminism, literary analysis and film theory. It also includes important discussions of his most recent publications, as well as a dialogue with Jean-Luc Nancy and an enlightening interview with Ranciere himself. All of these features make this collection a very welcome contribution to the burgeoning debate around Ranciere's veritable tour de force in the fields of history, aesthetics and politics.- Gabriel Rockhill, Villanova University -Oliver Davis has already established himself as a foremost and highly original commentator on the work of Jacques Ranciere, bringing unusual insight to its polymorphous achievements in politics and aesthetics. In this collection he sets out a striking polyphony of different voices and approaches, both deeply engaged and critical -- voices that represent a rare level of accomplishment each in their own right. Set against Ranciere's own contributions in interview and conversation, crossing between disciplines and generations, this volume offers a unique match to the importance of its subject.- Adrian Rifkin, Goldsmiths, University of London -Jacques Ranciere occupies a position of mainstream marginality in contemporary thought, and the present volume demonstrates both facets of this complex position very well. This volume will appeal both to Ranciere scholars and to those relatively new to his oeuvre.- Christopher Watkin, Monash University "This is a significant contribution to the expanding body of work on Ranciere.
