"A uniquely valuable resource written by a stellar group of authors. They pierce through every aspect of the discourse around the BRICS, showing the reality beneath the politically engineered triumphalism.'" Alfredo Saad-Filho, Professor of Political Economy, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

"This book is the most significant work yet published to examine these issues through a critical lens. It features essays from leading leftist scholars across the world such as Patrick Bond, Immanuel Wallerstein, Leo Panitch, William Robinson, Elmar Altvater, and Vijay Prashad, among many others ... The authors document the currently existing positions on the BRICS: from those who celebrate it, are cautious of it, to those who criticize it." James Parisot, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
