Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
Beschreibung""Politics Out of History" speaks in illuminating ways to distinctive features of contemporary experience. Wendy Brown's work commands widespread attention and respect, and there has been considerable interest as to how it would develop after "States of Injury." This book will not disappoint."--William Connolly, The Johns Hopkins University, author of "Why I Am Not a Secularist"
"Brown shows enormous skill in interpreting difficult texts, sounding them to their depths, and eliciting from them some of their most subtle meanings. Her book is steadily absorbing, and provides a genuine contribution to political theory."--George Kateb, Princeton University
