520    |bTyson E. Lewis and Richard Kahn argue for a new critical
       theory of the monster as an imaginary other on the margins
       of human and animal. Through a unique combination of 
       critical, posthumanist, and educational theories, the 
       authors engage in a surreal journey into the worlds of 
       feral children, alien reptoids, and faery faiths in order 
       to understand how social movements are renegotiating the 
       boundaries of community. Part philosophy of imagination, 
       part political theory, and part pedagogical critique, this
       book is a twenty-first century bestiary - a catalog to 
       navigate the monstrous world in which we live. 
520 1  "By engaging an encyclopedic range of figures from the 
       philosophical tradition and popular culture, Lewis and 
       Kahn lead us on a fascinating journey to discover the 
       monsters that populate our posthuman world. We are 
       confronted by horrible and fearsome beasts of violence, 
       exploitation, and destruction, but we also recognize 
       ourselves in creative monsters that blur the boundaries 
       between human and nonhuman life. Most impressively, Lewis 
       and Kahn propose paths to train the monsters of our world,
       a monstrous education, a pedagogy for the beautiful 
       monsters we can become."  - Michael Hardt, co-author of 
       Commonwealth  "Our cultural fascinations with the 
       monstrous and its omnipresence in our contemporary Western
       imaginings play center-stage in this provocative 
       exploration of a zoophilic exopedagogy. From the feral, to
       the alien, to the faery, Tyson Lewis and Richard Kahn put 
       pressure on our affective comfort zones by asking us what 
       it means to love the monstrous amidst and within us. The 
       answer comes through their theoretically vast and 
       conceptually rich exploration of a radical democratic 
       pedagogy of the unrepresentable."  - Davide Panagia, 
       Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies, Trent 
       University, Co-Editor of Theory and Event, and author of 
       The Political Life of Sensation.
