A really extraordinary collection of important voices. With the publication of Post-Theory, it is clear that the theory community has a future precisely because it is willing to entertain genuinely new possibilities and to learn new languages of discourse. -- Robert Con Davis, University of Oklahoma
A striking intervention which makes opening the post exciting again. Post-Theory's dialogic conception and adventurous debate really do show a way forward. -- Peter Brooker, Nene College of Higher Education
