Necropolitics

Achille Mbembe

An essay tracing the origin of modern sovereignty to the right over life and death.

The argument most interestingly situates necropower and necropolitics within the experience and discourse of the colonial and post-colonial, arguing that the violent application of Western forms of sovereignty in the colony as an assertion over the the 'Other's' right to life/death.
