Book: Sovereignty, Emergency, Legality

Book: Sovereignty, Emergency, Legality

Schmittean political theology informs many of the chapters (particularly 2, 3, and 4) in the contributed volume, "Sovereignty, Emergency, Legality", edited by Austin Sarat (Amherst) and published by Cambridge University Press in February 2010. Chapter 2 includes a section titled "Political Theology".

Quote: "This book concentrates on officials and the choices they make in defining, anticipating, and responding to conditions of emergency as well as the impact of their choices on embodied subjects, whether citizen or stranger."
