Weird to have a dictionary on Deleuze surely? Well, maybe, but this book is quite simply a life saver. Without it, I would have run away from Deleuze & Guattari and back to the safe shelter of theories which are not as political, not as progressive, not as challenging. This book is the product of a magnanimous, public-spirited team of scholars who have served Deleuze's legacy no end of good.

The idea of a Deleuze Dictionary might be controversial since Deleuzian concepts are never stable. This was the reason I stayed distanced from this book for a long time but could not help and bought it during my thesis. I was relieved to find that it is explanatory but not reductive. A rich selection of terms are clearly and efficiently explained with all its wideness of meaning by scholars specialised in that area of Deleuzian corpus. Highly recommended..

Deleuze presumes that being is creativity, keeping with Nietzsche's observation that the world is emotive and sensory. 'The Deleuze Dictionary' has helped me to study and write on literature in a new and more creative way, different from mimetic and structural approaches. The many entries, written by specialists, enables me to search for cross references and to find new approaches. I agree with the editor A. Parr in that this dictionary "comes to being in its use" - it produces infinite openings in your own thoughts of the work of art you are dealing with, closer to the fluxus of sensuality in the text.
