About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a much-needed new political theory of an old phemen. The last decade alone has marked the highest number of migrations in recorded history. Constrained by environmental, ecomic, and political instability, scores of people are on the move. But other sorts of changes-from global tourism to undocumented labor-have led to the fact that to some extent, we are all becoming migrants. The migrant has become the political figure of our time. Rather than viewing migration as the exception to the rule of political fixity and citizenship, Thomas Nail reinterprets the history of political power from the perspective of the movement that defines the migrant in the first place. Applying his kipolitics to several major historical conditions (territorial, political, juridical, and ecomic) and figures of migration (the mad, the barbarian, the vagabond, and the proletariat), he provides fresh tools for the analysis of contemporary migration.
