10 of 15 people found the following review helpful By John Elwood on December 5, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A relatively complex look at the rise and giving-way to various states of exceptions from the Cold War through 2008. Book was purchased on the recommendation of one William Spanos. Pease assumes of the reader very little in the way of making his references to Derrida, Lacan, Althusser, Rose, Agamben, etc., and takes the time to illustrate his and their ideas in concert in a clear, precise manner--in a very readable manner. The book is enjoyable in this way from page one.

What's more interesting--in an interesting way for OWS scholars--this book helps assemble the pieces of not only the origin, but the spiritual problematic--that is, the "audacity for hope for a future that is without shape," that is raised, not only by the 2008 promises of a Barack Obama, but by the OWS Movement of 2011. It provides a covert geneology of the OWS, while at the same time illuminating for us a key to its understanding, and a hinting at its, and our, future.

Format: Paperback
Virtually every page has blatant inaccuracies, unsubstantiated claims and incredulous theories. Don't buy it or waste your time reading it.
