The Post-Political and Its Discontents

Spaces of Depoliticization, Spectres of Radical Politics

First Edition

Edited by Japhy Wilson and Erik Swyngedouw

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Interrogates the theoretical literature on the post-political--its value and limits, its internal tensions and the possibility of creative syntheses with other approaches
  • Critically engages with multiple cases of contemporary depoliticisation, such as multiculturalism, philanthropy, participatory development sustainability planning and the regulation of biotechnology
  • Assesses the emancipatory potential of anti-austerity protests, the Occupy movement and other political struggles in the context of continuing processes of post-politicization
