For more than fifteen years Rosi Braidotti's nomadic thought has guided discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory, exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, embodiment and difference. These two classic books - "Nomadic Subjects: Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory" and "Nomadic Theory. The Portable Rosi Braidotti" - provide a coherent introduction into Braidotti's nomadic thinking. Engaging critically and affirmatively with contemporary political and cultural issues, Braidotti invites us to go nomadic now to open up potential for common sustainable futures.
