This review is from: Revolting Subjects: Social Abjection and Resistance in Neoliberal Britain (Paperback)
Revolting Subjects is a brilliant book about the ways in which various people, from asylum seekers to the ‘chav’, are depicted as the ‘underclass’ in contemporary Britain. Imogen Tyler weaves together academic theories and original research studies to provide an insightful, succinct, and beautifully written picture of Britain as we know it, in all its inequality. I found the case studies particularly compelling- they give the theories depth, context, originality, and are also incredibly moving, particularly ‘Abas Amini’s’ story. The contemporary take on, and new framing of, abjection theories are original and fascinating, bringing new life to old academic material, making it more relevant for modern readers. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and was continually moved and inspired. A must for anyone interested in theories on class, disgust, revolt and neoliberalism.
