Review of: Tzanelli, R., 2020. Magical Realist Sociologies of Belonging and Becoming: The Explorer. London: Routledge. ISBN: 978-0367432393

A critical review of the book titled “Magical Realist Sociologies of Belonging and Becoming: The Explorer” and authored by Rodanthi Tzanelli. Based on this review, this book discuss in-depth a structural dualism that not only helps us to expand our understanding and dichotomies around the problem of ecology and climate change but gives a clear diagnosis on the Western magical imaginary in a digital and hyper-global world. At least for this review, Magical realist sociologies of belonging and becoming brings a clear and fresh position to the foreground, scrutinizing on the other side of imperialism as well as the impacts of digital technologies in the daily lifestyle. The darkness says much of the mainstream cultural values of society than we certainly imagine. For those readers concerned by politics and mobilities, this book offers a high-quality and elegantly-written text which articulates magisterially different academic position, viewpoints and theories into an all-encompassing diagnosis.
