Returning to Revolution: Deleuze, Guattari and Zapatismo Hardcover - 2012

by Thomas Nail


From the publisher

We are witnessing the return of political revolution. However, this is not a return to the classical forms of revolution: the capture of the state, the political representation of the party, the centrality of the proletariat or the leadership of the vanguard. After the failure of such tactics over the last century, revolutionary strategy is now headed in an entirely new direction. Thomas Nail argues that Deleuze, Guattari and the Zapatistas are at the theoretical and practical heart of this new direction. 'Returning to Revolution' is the first full-length book devoted to Deleuze and Guattari's concept of revolution and to their connection with Zapatismo.

From the rear cover

'From Deleuze-Guattari to the Zapatistas and the Occupy movement, there is a long line of flight and an intertwining of subjective potencies that define, both theoretically and practically, the return of revolutionary action - which is traced here by Thomas Nail. This return to action is not dispersed in the molecular plurality of social movements, nor is it confused with any ideal prefiguration of the common, but instead produces new political bodies and strategic participation. Well done Nail!' Antonio Negri An account of the concept of revolution in the work of Deleuze and Guattari We are witnessing the return of political revolution.
