9780748633289: Critique of Security

This book brings together a range of diverse discussions about security in order to sustain a genuine critique of the subject. It is unique in its examination of the historical and political links between social security and national security and in its assessment of the way that emergency powers (as the most intense realisation of the rhetoric of 'national security') have been synthesised with 'normal' law.Among other ideas and concepts, Mark Neocleous discusses the place of security in the liberal tradition of political theory. Building on insights from Foucault and Marx, he argues that liberalism's central category is not liberty, but security. He also deals with the role of security in justifying the introduction and continuation of emergency powers through a historical excavation of the state of emergency, a political reading of the way emergency powers are only tangentially concerned with warfare, and a theoretical reading of the debate between Schmitt and Benjamin.

About the Author:


Mark Neocleous is Professor of the Critique of Political Economy at the Brunel University

Review:

'There is no more urgent question than that of why and how western political systems have become saturated by the concern for security. Yet the more governments pursue security the more they subvert the freedoms they claim to secure. The more also they render the world dangerous. Mark Neocleous is amongst the most acute observers of this lethal paradox. Returning to it here, by interrogating the complicity that also obtains between security, freedom and capital, Neocleous asks who gets what, where, when, and how when security operates as the generative principle of formation for our political and economic orders. Detailing also how emergency powers derived from martial law in a process that has progressively militarised social and political relations he provides a powerful counter-weight to abstract arguments about states of emergency. Challenging and accessible, this book opens up new political questions as it describes the new ways in which life has become more comprehensively securitised.'

Descripción EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Challenging and accessible, this book opens up new political questions as it describes the new ways in which life has become more comprehensively securitised. Professor Michael Dillon, Politics and International Relations, Lancaster University The contemporary political imagination and social landscape are saturated by the idea of security and thoughts of insecurity. This saturation has been accompanied by the emergence of a minor industry generating ideas about how to define and redefine security, how to defend and improve it, how to widen and deepen it, how to civilise and democratise it. In this book Mark Neocleous takes an entirely different approach and offers the first fully fledged critique of security. Challenging the common assumption that treats security as an unquestionable good, Neocleous explores the ways in which security has been deployed towards a vision of social order in which state power and liberal subjectivity have been inscribed into human experience. Treating security as a political technology of liberal order-building, engaging with the work of a wide range of thinkers, and ranging provocatively across a range of subject areas - security studies and international political economy; history, law and political theory; international relations and historical sociology - Neocleous explores the ways in which individuals, classes and the state have been shaped and ordered according to a logic of security. In so doing, he uncovers the violence which underlies the politics of security, the ideological circuit between security and emergency powers, and the security fetishism dominating modern politics. Key features: * Makes original use of diverse historical materials concerning the question of security * Provides a distinctive account of theoretical debates about security within the tradition of social and political theory * Gives a genuinely inter-disciplinary account of security, moving between political thought, history, sociology, and law * Is the first fully-fledged critique of security.
