Towards an Improper Politics

First Edition

Mark Devenney

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Characterises democratic politics as improper against the dominant view of democracy as a regime
  • Shows that questions of property, inequality and impropriety are central to post-Marxist thought and politics
  • Frames conceptual arguments within specific examples of political interventions from around the globe, including the politics of a brick and of occupations
  • Rethinks hegemony in terms of proprietary order thus rethinking the links between culture, economy and polity
  • Accords a dignity to forms of politics that are often deemed marginal
