Edgework brings jointly seven of Wendy Brown's such a lot provocative fresh essays in political and cultural idea. they vary from explorations of politics post-9/11 to serious reflections at the educational norms governing feminist stories and political concept. Edgework can be involved in the highbrow and political worth of critique itself. It renders modern the traditional jurisprudential that means of critique as krisis, within which a tear within the cloth of justice turns into the party of a public sifting or thoughtfulness, the improvement of standards for judgment, and the inauguration of political renewal or recovery. every one essay probes a latest problem--the cost of being unpatriotic for dissenting from U.S. overseas coverage, the erosion of liberal democracy by means of neoliberal political rationality, feminism's lack of a innovative horizon--and seeks to understand the highbrow deadlock the matter signs in addition to the political incitement it could actually harbor.
