State of Exception, Agamben, Giorgio

95 pp. Corners a little curled. All else as new. References. Index. "Two months after the attacks of 9/11, the Bush administration, in the midst of that it perceived to be a state of emergency, authorized the indefinite detention of noncitizens suspected of terrorist activities and their subsequent trials by a military commission. Here, the distinguished Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben uses such circumstances to argue that this unusual extension of power, or 'state of exception,' has historically been an under-examined and powerful strategy that has the potential to transform democracies into totalitarian states."

The result of extensive research in Germany and Austria, it is based on a solid grasp of the secondary literature as well as a thorough mastery of all the relevant primary sources."

"By showing how intensely and politically self-defeating is the monist politics of right-wing extremists, the authors in effect make a powerful argument for the much-abused pluralist, democratic politics of the American mainstream. For all its clumsiness and inequity, party politics and representative, constitutional government remain the only device that can hope to cope with a society in endless and often violent flux." -- Morton Keller
