Product description

Review

"It's clear that its author is still interested in stirring up trouble--academic, political and otherwise."--Bookforum

"A book that shines with the splendor of engaged thought."--Brooklyn Rail

"Here is a unique voice of courage and conceptual ambition that addresses public life from the perspective of psychic reality, encouraging us to acknowledge the solidarity and the suffering through which we emerge as subjects of freedom."--Homi K. Bhabha

"Judith Butler is quite simply one of the most probing, challenging, and influential thinkers of our time."--J.M. Bernstein

Synopsis

In her most impassioned and personal book to date, Judith Butler responds in this profound appraisal of post-9/11 America to the current US policies to wage perpetual war, and calls for deeper understanding of how mourning and violence might instead inspire solidarity and a quest for social justice.
