Manuel DeLanda’s Assemblage Theory published

9781474413633Manuel DeLanda’s Assemblage Theory has been published in the Speculative Realism series at Edinburgh University Press.

Clarifies and systematises the concepts and presuppositions behind the influential new field of assemblage theory

Manuel DeLanda provides the first detailed overview of the assemblage theory found in germ in Deleuze and Guattari’s writings. Through a series of case studies DeLanda shows how the concept can be applied to economic, linguistic and military history as well as to metaphysics, science and mathematics.
DeLanda then presents the real power of assemblage theory by advancing it beyond its original formulation – allowing for the integration of communities, institutional organisations, cities and urban regions. And he challenges Marxist orthodoxy with a Leftist politics of assemblages.
