"I am impressed by the earnestness and boldness with which Michael Dillon seeks to rethink and revitalize the question of the political in Heidegger's wake. In particular, his reading of the tragic and Greek tragedy to illuminate his problematic of security/insecurity is genuinely brilliant and compelling." -- Keith Ansell Pearson, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, University of Warwick
"Providing us with a new way to think about the ontological underpinnings of security and insecurity is but the first major accomplishment of THE POLITICS OF SECURITY. But Dillon does more than this: he asks us to rethink the tragic as a way of evading the fate of security. This is a challenging and important book. -- Thomas Dumm, Amherst College, author of MICHEL FOUCAULT AND THE POLITCS OF FREEDOM
