The Pluriverse is the latest in a line of critical conceptual dictionaries problematizing the idea of ‘development’ from a variety of left-leaning progressive perspectives. The editors provide a lengthy set of introductions and rationales for the book, followed by a number of essays on why ‘reformist solutions’ won't work. The core of the book: ‘A People's Pluriverse: Transformative Initiatives’ consists of about 80 shorter essays by scholars and scholar-activists from all over the world, focused on the project to establish the idea of the pluriverse as the alternative to Sustainable Development and (in most cases) global capitalist hegemony, arguing for the pluriverse as a more life-enhancing foundation on which to build the theory and practice of a better world. The book is almost unique in terms of the conceptual range and geographical scope of the contributors.
