Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Security Archipelago, Paul Amar provides an alternative historical and theoretical framing of the refashioning of free-market states and the rise of humanitarian security regimes in the Global South by examining the pivotal, trendsetting cases of Brazil and Egypt. Addressing gaps in the study of neoliberalism and biopolitics, Amar describes how coercive security operations and cultural rescue campaigns confronting waves of resistance have appropriated progressive, antimarket discourses around morality, sexuality, and labor. The products of these strugglesandmdash;including powerful new police practices, religious politics, sexuality identifications, and gender normativitiesandmdash;have traveled across an archipelago, a metaphorical island chain of what the global security industry calls andquot;hot spots.andquot; Homing in on Cairo and Rio de Janeiro, Amar reveals the innovative resistances and unexpected alliances that have coalesced in new polities emerging from the Arab Spring and South America's Pink Tide. These have generated a shared modern governance model that he terms the andquot;human-security state.andquot;

Synopsis:

Based on in-depth ethnographic research in Cairo and Rio de Janeiro, Paul Amar describes new forms of governance emerging in the Global South, partly in opposition to neoliberalism.
