About the Author
Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. Felix Guattari (1930-1992) was a psychoanalyst at the la Borde Clinic, as well as being a major social theorist and radical activist.

serious reader of contemporary philosophy. Deleuze and
Guattari correctly predicted the intensification of the
stratification of "civilized society" by 1980; they also
presaged the World Wide Web and declared their deep
suspicions about any and all massive systems for networking
humankind before the web ever existed. Their anarchic call
for radical individual autonomy never sounded truer than now.
(A noteworthy additional book to seek from their giant
bibliography: Pierre Clastres' Society Against the State.)
The overall presentation of the 2013 Bloomsbury Revelations edition is great, the format is quite comfortable (it's noticeably bigger than the Continuum edition) and has nice cover design. But beware, there are way too many typos! It's very close to the threshold of unacceptability. It's quite a shame for Bloomsbury to publish such an exceptional book with so poor editorial job. This certainly won't stop me from completing it, but I won't be inclined to buy anything from the Bloomsbury Revelations series again.
