Reviews

'Jenny Edkins takes us on a transformative journey into the subtleties of a politics without certainty. Powered by a quiet anger at the injustices of this world, her essays artfully resurrect modes of life that would "otherwise vanish without a trace." This book exemplifies what it means to slowly, hopefully, on day-to-day terms, undo a patently colonial world.'
Himadeep Muppidi, Betty G.C. Cartwright Professor of Political Science & International Studies, Vassar College
