Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this important and provocative book, packed with deep insights, Chandler illustrates how global problems are turbaned into problems of human subjectivity. This book will set the vital question of the discursive shift from the external to the internal world at the top of the agenda." - Professor Jonathan Joseph, Department of Politics, University of Sheffield, UK
