Methods and Nations: Cultural Governance and the Indigenous Subject

Taylor & Francis, 01/03/2004 - 272 páginas
Methods and Nations critiques one of the primary deployments of twentieth-century social science: comparative politics whose major focus has been nation-building in the Third World, often attempting to universalize and render self-evident its own practices. International relations theorists, unable to resist the cognitive imperialism of a state-centric social science, have allowed themselves to become colonized. Michael Shapiro seeks to bring recognition to forms of political expression-alternative modes of intelligibility for things, people, and spaces-that have existed on the margins of the nationhood practices of states and the complicit nation-sustaining conceits of social science.
