Reviews

"Manning emphasizes a kind of affect that brings to the fore a feeling of being a part of a larger environment, something relational, something that helps people to see themselves as part of something bigger."--Karen Simecek "Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory" (9/8/2017 12:00:00 AM)
"The Minor Gesture is a fascinating and intellectually challenging book that successfully problematises common-sense (neurotypical) understandings of perception, action and embodiment. In doing so it politicises mundane everyday experience and calls for sustained critique of normatively framed lifeworlds."--Ben Simmons "Disability & Society" (1/5/2018 12:00:00 AM)
"A wide-ranging and carefully argued book. . . . Now that we know just how much mental activity escapes our conscious awareness and defies standard and dialectical accounts of knowledge, reason, and agency, efforts like Manning's to better understand neurodiversity and to mobilize that understanding for research-creation and political activism alike are invaluable."--Eugene W. Holland "Contemporary Political Theory" (8/8/2017 12:00:00 AM)
