‘These elegantly written and erudite essays expose the myopic and embedded character of geopolitical and statist framings and, at the same time, identify openings for a different kind of future offered by the citizen pilgrim. The critique of drone warfare and how it undermines international law is particularly devastating.’
Mary Kaldor, London School of Economics
'Power Shift … is full of interesting insights and displays an impressive degree of rhetorical power. For all those who are in search of a forceful, mostly Left critique of the status quo, this book is a must-read.'
