MEDIA REVIEWS

'Surma's first book was groundbreaking, but this one exceeds even my highest expectations for a sequel. She deftly weaves critical cosmopolitanism into the warp and woof of writing on a theoretically sound loom. The results include an ethics of care with immediate contemporary relevance conveyed in a crafted prose that is a joy to explore. In line with her plea that 'it is more urgent than ever for writers in the non-fiction domain to draw on some of the insights and approaches of their fiction-writing colleagues', she convincingly shows, with considerable style, how any more equitable cosmopolitan world order will not only be a new word order, but an imaginative re-ordering of words and worlds. This outstanding book simultaneously opens pathways to fairer futures and provides a theoretical frame for transforming the practice and study of writing and rhetoric.' - David McKie, the University of Waikato, New Zealand
