      1. A massively influential volume by radical French theorists Deleuze and Guattari, which presents a highly original analysis of late capitalism using concepts such as ‘the body without organs,’ ‘becoming animal,’ ‘micropolitics,’ and ‘the rhizome.’ The authors argue for the development of ‘rhizomatic structures’ and ‘nomadic thought’ as positions of resistance against oppression and the destructive forces of globalization today. Translator Brian Massumi’s foreword is a useful stepping off point in reading this difficult text.
