National Missile Defence and the Politics of US Identity

A Poststructural Critique

Natalie Bormann

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Applies the work of Foucault, whose work has been highly significant in recent IR literature
  • Offers a theoretically sophisticated, engaging analysis, that goes beyond the simplistic and un-reflexive work often published on key issues of global security
  • Seeks to understand an interesting conundrum - why has there been so much interest and continuous investment in NMD deployment when, as will be shown, there is such ambiguity surrounding the status of the threat it responds to, controversy over its technological feasibility and concern about its cost?
