This book provides a critical understanding of contemporary world politics by arguing that the neoliberal approach to international relations seduces many of us into investing our lives in projects of power and alienation. These projects offer few options for emancipation; consequently, many feel they have little choice but to retaliate against violence with more violence.

 

The authors of this pioneering work articulate worldism as an alternative approach to world politics. It intertwines non-Western and Western traditions by drawing on Marxist, postcolonial, feminist and critical security approaches with Greek and Chinese theories of politics, broadly defined. The authors contend that contemporary world politics cannot be understood outside the legacies of these multiple worlds, including axes of power configured by gender, race, class, and nationality, which are themselves linked to earlier histories of colonizations and their contemporary formations. With fiction and poetry as exploratory methods, the authors build on their ‘multiple worlds’ approach to consider different sites of world politics, arguing that a truly emancipatory understanding of world politics requires more than just a shift in ways of thinking; above all, it requires a shift in ways of being.

 

Transforming World Politics will be of vital interest to students and scholars of International Relations, Political Science, Postcolonial Studies, Social Theory, Women's Studies, Asian Studies, European Union and Mediterranean Studies, and Security Studies.

Review:

This is a worldly and sophisticated antidote to so much that is sterile and narrow in today's International Relations. The authors have provided us with a literate and learned statement on how to view a complex world. It is an important early contribution to what should become the mainstream of International Relations. Stephen Chan, Professor of International Relations, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, UK

 

In challenging historical erasures that have been carried through violence as desire and the desire for violence, as well as the framing of discourses and the incarceration of labour in property relations, Transforming World Politics makes us think about our diminished way of life under the neoliberal imperium. The authors make the bold claim that we need to interrogate and challenge not only the 'other' but ourselves, thus creating new possibilities of moving forward together. Shirin M. Rai, Professor of Politics and International Studies, University of Warwick, UK
