Eric WorbyThis invigorating and intellectually stimulating book promises to reinvent the very questions we ask about the practice, object, and experience of the political in the postnational age that is coming ever more sharply into view. The authors provide a serviceable and relevant theoretical horizon not only for a moribund political anthropology but for a sclerotic political science as well. By placing the problem of sovereignty at the heart of political projects of all kinds, and by focusing on violence as the principal means by which such projects are contingently realized, they have provided scholars of the postcolonial world with a new set of conceptual tools to think about power beyond the state.
