Anne Phillips is the Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her many books include "The Politics of Presence" and "Multiculturalism without Culture" (Princeton).
"[B]oth those who are aware of what is happening around these issues and those who have not reflected on recent developments around markets, bodies and properties would do well to read Phillips' timely, intelligent overview of the challenges of early 21st-century global body politics... [A] rich feast of considered reflections on some of the most pressing issues of our times."--Maureen McNeil, Times Higher Education
