Against War: Views from the Underside of Modernity (Latin America Otherwise) by Nelson Maldonado-Torres

Against War is a tour-de-force study in ethics and the philosophy of liberation that brings together the European Jewish, Afro-Caribbean, and Latin American undersides of modern thought. Nelson Maldonado-Torres does this not for the sake of articulating an intellectual historicism or textual mastery but for the sake of illuminating his own theory of critical epistemic normativity. This long-awaited work, written by the best critical theorist of his generation in Caribbean and Latin American thought, is groundbreaking; it properly takes the decolonial turn to another level as it inaugurates what the author aptly coins decolonial ethics. I expect this work to receive much well deserved study for generations to come. It is a triumph.--Lewis R. Gordon, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Judaic Studies, Temple University
