Daniel McLoughlin (ed.), Agamben and Radical Politics: 11 essays on Giorgio Agamben's thinking about economy and government, revolt and revolution (Edinburgh: 2016)
Giorgio Agamben's analysis of sovereignty was profoundly influential for critical theory as it grappled with issues of security and state violence in the wake of September 11 2001. But what does his work have to say in an age of economic crises and political revolts? The essays in this volume analyse Agamben's recent work on government and his relationship to the revolutionary tradition. They shed new light upon Agamben’s thought, and open up new ways of thinking about economy and action, two issues that have become crucial for politics and critical theory in the post-financial crisis world. Includes a new essay by Agamben entitled 'Capitalism as Religion.'
