Deleuze's A Thousand Plateaus a top-five pick
Human rights lawyer Chibli Mallat (best known for legal actions on behalf of the victims of Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein) has chosen one of our dearest and all-time most popular books as one of the top five books in "maverick political thought": A Thousand Plateaus, by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. (Er, Mille Plateaux, as he prefers.)
Mallat briefly discusses this book's brilliance and how it relates to Mallat's research on Islamic law. Read what he has to say and join in the conversation at FiveBooks.
