"I do not know of any other book in ethical theory that will so quickly orient a reader just trying to comprehend the field, while also making arguments that those immersed in the field are going to have to take into account. "Alterity Politics" is a superb book, one which provides an education in contemporary theory that will benefit enormously those who read it."--John McGowan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
