“As Fiona Mackenzie demonstrates in her important new book, the Highlands and Hebrides have become, in recent years, the center of a sustained effort to construct an alternative, place-based and more generous politics to that of a neoliberal imaginary … Mackenzie has written a book that is thrilling in its optimism and hopefulness. She convincingly explains in compelling detail the hopeful possibilities of the re-commoning in the Hebrides and Highlands. This is rarely the stuff of academic study but is at the heart of Places of Possibility’s profound ambitions and most important contribution: anticipating ‘more socially, environmentally and economically generous postneoliberalisms’.” (Antipode, 1 September 2013)
