State of Exception, Agamben, Giorgio
103 Agamben, Giorgio State of Exception

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."
