In an age of great richnessthat isheavily burdened by uncertainty, risk, contradiction, and absurdity, there is much fuel for intellectual criticism and debate. Reflecting uponthe present as the fundamentaltime for action, this anthology contains contributions by Carlos Pacheco, Colin Richards, Ghassan Zaqtan, Joao Barrento, John Frow, Moira Simpson, Paul Gilroy, Peter Sloterdijk, Rosangela Renno, Santiago Kovadloff, Surendra Munshi, and Wang Hui. As citizens of the world, they are not just concerned with their country, house, religion, or personal pleasure, but with the consequences of the wars that are currently taking place and those thatloom on the horizon, as well as withthe deepening of asymmetries as the most negative aspect of globalization."
