"This is a book that demands the attention and engagement of geographers, and others ‘inside' and ‘outside' academia, working on the intersections between social movements, political identities and the neoliberal state, ultimately offering a productive and uniquely positive approach to understanding and acting on the issues raised by such concerns." (Area, February 2011)"Featherstone has produced a book as dexterous, creative, and wide-ranging as the political networks it seeks to describe." (Progress in Human Geography and Environment and Planning D, February 2011)
"This reviewer thinks we should be rather more generous - for, whatever the political objectives, we should be hugely grateful for Featherstone's rescuing of the past relational geographies of resistance." (Progress in Human Geography, February 2011)
"Featherstone's book contributes to our understanding of the formation of counter-global networks. He shows that transnational networks are not void of place. ... This book provides a good starting point for scholars who seek an understanding what happens to networks when subaltern relationships are spread across the globe." (Mobilization, March 2010)
"This optimistic take on the role of political contestation in world-making processes is a welcome change from the gloom and doom so typical of other geographical texts." (Environment and Planning A, 2009)"This book powerfully engages with contemporary relational understandings of space by drawing upon, critiquing and developing a rich theoretical palette. This together with the use of evocative ethnographic material serves to provide a convincing account of how political identities are created, reworked and deployed in networked practices of resistance. The book makes a significant contribution to the theorizing and explaining of political identities and practices forged through the articulation of resistance in empirically varied contexts."
–Paul Routledge, University of Glasgow
"Featherstone’s focus on the extra-local ties underpinning situated subaltern struggle offers a salutary alternative to conventional accounts of place-based resistance. His book’s overall argument is as generative as it is critical for remapping global grievances and the interlinked insurgencies they inspire."
–Matthew Sparke, University of Washington, Seattle
