“Still Ahead Somehow:” Paul Amar’s The Security Archipelago

Here is a new book review by Neel Ahuja, which I edited in my work as advisory editor for the journal boundary 2 (the review’s title, from a poem by Langston Hughes, was my doing). It is posted to my “Literature/Politics” section of the journal website.

Neel’s piece engages Amar’s book on bio-politics in a comparative paradigm, indicating how neo-liberal reconfigurations of the nation-state have exacerbated rifts on power dynamics, exposing populations and cities to new forms of state violence.
