Deleuze's fondness for geography has long been recognised as central to his thought. This is the first book to introduce researchers to the breadth of his engagements with space, place and movement. Focusing on pressing global issues such as urbanization, war, migration, and climate change, Arun Saldanha presents a detailed Deleuzian rejoinder to a number of theoretical and political questions about globalization in a variety of disciplines. This systematic overview of moments in Deleuze's corpus where space is implicitly or explicitly theorized shows why he can be called the twentieth century's most interesting thinker of space. Anyone with an interest in refining such concepts as territory, assemblage, body, event and Anthropocene will learn much from the "geophilosophy" which Deleuze and Guattari proposed for our critical times.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Oceans are rising, atmospheres are warming, soils are changing, and the whole social world feels it's in slow upheaval. But as Saldanha writes, though the ground beneath our feet is always shifting, it is still a ground and not a bottomless abyss. Saldanha argues that it is a specifically Deleuzian kind of thinking that offers geographers the best tools to think through the complexity and messiness of our times, opening up rather than shutting down analyses, tending towards complexity rather than simple reduction. * Antipode *
Space After Deleuze is a brilliant and lucid account of the spatial thought of Gilles Deleuze and his sidekick Felix Guattari, that will delight and inspire geographers and philosophers alike. It will be essential reading for everyone who loves Deleuze, thinking, and space. But that's not all. For as a fossil fuelled and capital addicted humanity hell-bent on suicide continues to torture itself and the world, even the planet itself is screaming out for fresh thinking, a new people, and a new earth. By channelling the geo-communist spirit of Deleuze and Guattari, Arun Saldanha maps out a thinking space that is truly worthy of life on earth - a revolutionary geo-philosophy fit for the Anthropocene. Whereas Michel Foucault once quipped that "perhaps one day, this century will be known as Deleuzian" Arun Saldanha stunningly shows why the whole millennium will have been Deleuzian. -- Marcus A. Doel, Professor of Human Geography, College of Science, Swansea University, UK
Space After Deleuze is a welcome invitation to rethink the very notion of `space'. Arun Saldanha introduces students of space-geographers, architects and planners-to the geophilosophy of Deleuze and Guattari that is fundamental to this task. The book bravely turns a Deleuzian conception of the `dynamic thickness' of space toward the most pressing social, political and (always) geographic issues of our age. -- Chris L. Smith, Associate Professor in Architectural Design and Techne, The University of Sydney, Australia
