One Planet, Many Worlds displays the same critical ingenuity, analytical subtlety,
polymathic erudition, and gravitas that one has come to expect from Chakrabarty. Those
who engages its arguments attentively, even in dissent, will come away energized by the
encounter with a strenuous and self-exacting thinker capable of ranging back and forth
across a vertiginous range of disciplines from geology to phenomenology.
